This is the kind of deal stacking I like! Thanks to a couple of mileage portal bonuses and discounts, you can earn up to 19X American Airline miles on a variety of gear and get a discount.
Earn Up To 19X American Airline Miles
Up To 19X American Airline Miles
This is using a limited time payout increase at Backcountry from 6 miles per dollar to 15 miles per dollar. That combines with the current promo bonus of up to 5,000 American Airline miles when spending at various thresholds. Here is the post about the AA bonus promo for the 5,000 miles.
I am not sure how long the best part of this is going to last – the 15X portal bonus. I would move on this quickly to take advantage of it before it disappears.
The 20% Discount & Great GoPro Deal
GoPro Hero4 models have often been on sale lately. But, there is a way to make this deal even better and that is with the 20% discount that Backcountry is giving on one full-priced item. That brings the GoPro Hero4 Black model from $499 to $399. Plus, to make it better, you can get a free LCD Touch BacPac so you can see what you are shooting. This is regularly $65, so you are getting an even better deal on that!
This will all ring up in your cart to $399 (plus any taxes). This will translate to a minimum of 6,450 American Airline miles. At present, I would consider them to be worth about 1.7 cents each making a mileage haul worth about $110! You can also flip this package on eBay to at least break even and keep the miles!
Of course, you can buy anything else at Backcountry too for the bonus and the 20% off (with some exclusions, like on GPS units). If you spend the full $1,200 required for the full promo (remember, this is cumulative spend across all AAdvantage portal stores and shopping), you would earn a total of 23,000 American Airline miles! If you have friends, family, future gear purchases, and even resale options, you could really get a great haul!
