AAdvantage Bonus

Throughout the year American Airlines offered several bonuses when purchasing Aadvantage Miles like this one back in August and this one from last month. Right now American is offering up To 75,000 bonus AAdvantage miles which makes it the best AAdvantage bonus offer of the year.

AAdvantage Bonus

The bonus is built on tier based system where the more miles you buy, the higher the bonus you receive. If you max out this offer you can end up with 200,000 Aadvantage miles for ~$4,000. That’s enough miles for two roundtrip flights to Asia in business class, a trip that would normally cost anywhere between $10,000 to $15,000 if not more.

The terms and conditions of the offer:

AAdvantage members must purchase at least 6,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program from 7:00:00am CT November 15, 2015 to 11:59:59pm CT November 30, 2015, to be eligible to earn bonus miles. The applicable bonus miles are awarded to the recipient for Gift Miles transactions. The applicable bonus miles awarded are shown beside each mileage increment in the mileage selection drop-down box. Bonus miles earned do not count toward the annual limits.

Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. The miles successfully purchased or transferred will post to the designated account immediately. Each AAdvantage member is limited to purchasing or receiving in a calendar year, a combined total of no more than 125,000 AAdvantage miles. Miles purchased through the Buy Miles program or received as a gift through the Gift Miles program count against this total. The miles purchased with the Buy Miles program and received with the Gift Miles program do not count towards AAdvantage Gold, AAdvantage Platinum, AAdvantage Executive Platinum or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status qualification. A confirmation email will be sent to the primary buyer/gifter and/or recipient, using the email address(es) associated with the AAdvantage account(s) and any additional email address provided. AAdvantage accounts less than 30 days old are not permitted to Buy or Gift Miles.


Bottom Line:

As I always say, when it comes to purchasing miles, Although this seems to be a good deal to top off you AAdvantage account, I can’t encourage buying miles unless you have a use for them within the next few months. Given how amazing this offer is, if you have any long haul trip within the next 11 months on which you can redeem AAdvantage miles, pull the trigger and buy enough miles to get you that redemption.
