Almost Free 10,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles


What is this deal?

Looking for an easy way to top up your AAdvantage Account?  American Airlines is currently running a promotion where if you complete 4 offers with their AAdvantage partners, you will receive $10,000 bonus miles.   I am currently completing this promotion to add miles to my account.

Not a Bad Deal for 10,000 AAdvantage Miles for ~$42The promotion is fairly easy to complete.  I did not have to go out of my way to complete 3 of the 4 requirements (1-800-flowers, eShopping and Dining).  Keep in mind that American Express has  $15 off $50 offer with 1-800-flowers and 1-800-flowers has more than just flowers (including gifts for grads and dads).

Ordering the wine will cost me $41.95 and a phone call to cancel; however, I will earn 8,000 extra AAdvantage miles from completing this last step (3,000 from the first wine shipment and 5,000 incremental miles from the promotion).  This is like buying AAdvantage miles for approximately 1/2 cent per point.  While American Airlines isn’t known for the best redemptions on their own flights, they do have fantastic partner options.  Check back soon for our trip report from JAL’s business class booked using AAdvantage Miles.
