American Airlines is offering a special promotion through their partners for Mother’s and Father’s Day. Remember that Mother’s Day is coming up next weekend, and Father’s Day will be on June 18th. You can earn up to 10,000 bonus AAdvantage miles depending on the number of transactions you make
- If you make a purchase from just two partners, you’ll earn 2,000 bonus miles.
- If you make a purchase from three partners, you’ll earn 3,000 bonus miles.
- Make a purchase from all four partners to earn the full 10,000 bonus miles.
These partners aren’t exclusive to the online shopping portal. In fact, AAdvantage eShopping is only one of the participating partners. Other partners include 1-800-Flowers, the AAdvantage Dining program, and the Vinesse Wines program. You need to make one transaction with all four of these partners to earn the maximum bonus; four transactions with just one partner won’t suffice.
Although I don’t find the dining and wine programs very appealing, it should still be simple for most people to order some flowers and make an eShopping purchase to get 2,000 miles.
I’ve grown more pessimistic toward the AAdvantage program in the last year as award space as become difficult to find, even on American’s own planes! As a result, I value AAdvantage miles close to 1.5 cents each or even less. That makes this offer worth about $150. But that’s still a good deal for such a simple promo. And, once you have the miles, they’re still not as difficult to redeem on some partner carriers in Asia, Europe, and even Alaska Airlines here in the U.S.
