Earn Up to 4,000 Bonus American Airline Miles – An Extra 3 Miles Per Dollar!

Written by Charlie

Start your shopping through American Airlines and their shopping portal to earn up to an extra 4,000 bonus miles – on top of what you earn from the retailers already! Rack up a lot of miles this holiday season with these promos.

Another shopping promo is here also and this one is for American Airlines. While not the same maxed out amount of 5,000 miles, you can earn 4,000 American Airline miles with this deal and less spending.

Here are the details about this AA shopping portal offer (very similar to the one from United earlier):

  • This promo runs from 10/29/18 through 11/18/18 at 11:59:59 pm ET
  • Earn a one-time bonus of up to 4,000 AAdvantage® miles on qualifying purchases, in addition to the standard AAdvantage® miles earned from shopping online through the AAdvantage eShoppingSM mall.
  • This one-time bonus award will be determined based on Member’s cumulative qualifying purchases made during the Bonus Period using one of the following tiers:
    • Tier 1 bonus: 500 miles for qualifying purchases of at least $150
    • Tier 2 bonus: 2,000 miles for qualifying purchases of at least $600
    • Tier 3 bonus: 4,000 miles for qualifying purchases of $1,200 or more
  • “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles

Like with the United portal, this is a very attractive offer since you are essentially earning an extra 3 miles per dollar (if your total across retailers is right at the purchase tier). If you were to spend the $1,200 across retailers averaging 6 miles per dollar, you would end up with a total of 11,200 AA miles – just shy of a one-way award ticket anywhere in the US! This is a nice way to fatten up your mileage account!
