Earn Up to 11 Miles Per Dollar on Apple

Link: Bonus Miles On Apple at AAdvantage

This is a deal offered by American Airlines and their shopping portal. The part that is for today only is an offer of 6 miles per dollar. When coupled with the ongoing bonus from the AAdvantage portal of 1,500 bonus miles when you spend $300 or more, that equals a maximum of 11 miles per dollar if you spend $300 at Apple.

Here are the details for this AAdvantage portal offer:

  • Rewards are issued by this site, not Apple.
  • iMac Pro, iPhone X and Apple TV 4K are not eligible.
  • Newly released products may not be eligible.
  • Additional products not eligible are: gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, and expedited shipping.
  • Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible.
  • Employee Purchase Plan sites are not eligible. EPP purchases are not eligible.
  • Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site

Unlike the similar offer from a month ago, this one does not exclude the Apple Watch Series 3 models. With the sweet spot of this deal being the $300-ish range, that makes the Apple Watch Series 3 models a prime buy.

However, they did include the Apple TV 4K, the iPhone X and the about-to-be-released (order date today) iMac Pro. It is understandable that they excluded that iMac Pro but a real shame since there are many that will be buying it and the starting price is $5,000 – that would be a whole lot of American Airline miles! 🙂

Ongoing AAdvantage Portal Offer

  • Spend $150 through the American Airlines portal and earn 500 bonus miles (an extra 3.33 miles per dollar)
  • Spend $300 through the portal and earn 1,500 bonus miles (these are tiers and not additional amounts – so the max is 1,500 miles)
  • Bonus runs from 12/11/17 through 12/17/17 at 11:59:59 pm ET

Good Deal?

Definitely check whatever you plan on buying with other retailers. There are deals offered by retailers like B&H on the MacBook Pro models that may be better than earning 6 miles per dollar. Also, note that B&H does not charge sales tax for items shipped outside of New York.

At the 6 mile per dollar level, I would value that at being worth about 9.5 cents per dollar. If you max out the bonus and spend exactly $300, you would earn 3,300 miles that I would value at around $50 which is a nice return on spend with Apple!
