The Basics

American Airlines Shopping Portal Bonus

I received an e-mail yesterday about a way to get up to 1,000 American Airline miles with their shopping portal through a promotion. The easiest step is to simply register at the AAdvantage Shopping Mall (does not cost anything) to receive a 100 miles. Now, I know, who is going anywhere with 100 miles? The value isn’t in the amount but that it is miles. American Airline miles expire after 18 months of no activity. That can really hurt to lose all of your accrued miles because you had been saving them but had not had any new activity. If you register through this promotion, you can reset the clock on those miles to prevent them from expiring on you.

To get the 100 miles, enroll with this link. Remember, shopping portals are extremely valuable to earn miles through, though your area of interest and earning may not be with American Airlines. That’s ok – just do this anyway since it is free and there is no obligation and you will reset the clock on your expiring miles!
