American's Online Shopping Bonus: 1,000 Miles
Are you earning miles for your online purchases?
This promotion is a reminder that you could be, and should be.
Through September 30, AAdvantage members can earn a one-time 1,000-mile bonus when purchasing at least $35 worth of merchandise through the AAdvantage Shopping network of online retailers.
As always when earning miles through an airline's mileage mall, be sure to log in on the shopping site's landing page before following the links to the merchants' websites. That's to ensure that your purchases are tracked and the miles are properly credited to your account.
Deal or No Deal
Sure, the bonus is a modest one.
But spending $35 at any of more than 500 online retailers? Easy!
And really, that should be the take-away from this promotion. Whatever program you participate in, there's probably a mileage mall associated with it. And since the price is the same with or without miles, you're leaving value on the table if you're not earning miles for online purchases you'd normally make.
