American Airlines’ Black Friday has been extended – you can still buy AA miles for as low as 1.77 cents each. Check out the different tiers available and if this is right for you.

American Airlines ran a pretty good sale on buying miles for Black Friday and it appears they have extended it now through January 3! While it can be a good deal, make sure you check out the numbers below for the best value for you.

This is pretty cheap if you are looking for AA miles (especially with Citi cracking down on bonuses from the same card family). To buy AA miles for 1.77 cents each, you will need to spend quite a bit of money but it will come down to what you plan on doing with the miles. If you are using your AA miles for premium cabin travel, this could definitely be the cheaper way to get them.

Tier Prices (these prices include the tax):

For instance, if you were to fly from New York to Abu Dhabi on Etihad’s A380 in their First Apartment, it would require 230,000 AA miles roundtrip (which would cost $4,071 with this deal). If you were to purchase the ticket outright, it would cost you $14,500! Of course, I am not suggesting anyone do this but just pointing out that purchasing miles for such travel would certainly be cheaper than buying outright (and I know that there are readers that do spend thousands on premium cabins).

Just make sure you have a definite use for the miles before buying as you never know what changes (“enhancements“) that American Airlines may make along the way. Still, if you need American Airline miles, this has to be one of the best prices for them in a while!

The good part about this sale now extending until January 3, 2017 is that we can be pretty confident there will not be any devaluation before then! 🙂
