American Airlines Up To 3,000 Miles Dining Bonus

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • American Airlines is offering a bonus of up to 3,000 miles for joining and using their dining program. Offer as follows:
    • Earn 1,500 AAdvantage bonus miles by spending $25 or more on your first participating restaurant visit
    • Earn 500 AAdvantage bonus miles on each of your next three participating visits

The Fine Print

  • This bonus offer is open to all new AAdvantage DiningSM members who have not yet created a web login and registered a credit and/or debit card.
  • To qualify, you must create a web login and register a valid credit and/or debit card by October 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, and remain opted in to receive emails from the AAdvantage DiningSM program with a valid, deliverable email address.
  • You must also continue to satisfy any other applicable Online/VIP level criteria to earn this bonus.
  • To earn the initial 1,500 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles on this offer, you must dine at any participating restaurant, bar, or club, and spend at least $25 (including tax and tip) on your check. To earn the subsequent 500 AAdvantage® bonus miles on this offer, you must dine at any participating restaurant, bar, or club, and spend at least $1 (including tax and tip) on your check, for up to 3 qualifying visits. All qualifying visits must occur within your first 30 days of AAdvantage DiningSM membership. Limit one bonus–qualifying visit per restaurant per day.

Our Verdict

Remember you can only enroll a card in one of these at a time and it conflicts with other programs that use Rewards Network. Previous bonuses from American Airlines have been 2,000 miles (1,000 for first visit and then 500 for two more visits), so this looks better than normal. As always how useful this is will really depend on the eligible restaurants in your area.

    One other thing that may be worth noting: the Rewards Network restaurants usually overlap with Yelp Cash Back program and the rewards are stackable, so you might as well enroll in Yelp Cash Back with the same card and get 7-10% cash back in addition to the miles bonuses and points earned by the card itself.

    would buying gift cards, instead of actual dining work?

    • Jedi says:

      Yes. I bought Buca De Beppo gift card with Amex offer CC and the AO triggers of course as well as whaterver dining program linked to the card. Getting some nice points as triggered 3 accounts with one trip to Buca with 3 different Amex offers/credit cards.

  3. MarcoPolo says:

    I already use the AAdvantage Dining program to keep my miles from expiring.
    However, I am not sure if I have any use of AA miles due to the $75 AAdvantage Award Charge.

  4. Charlie says:

    Does the credit card you register have to be one of the AAdvantage cards, or can it be a bank card like Chase Sapphire Reserve?

  5. Master Allan says:

    Here’s an interesting angle. Wife and I have independent Aadvantage accounts and neither have signed up for the dining program. Wife is an authorized user on my Discover card. Discover is currently 5% back on restaurants. Possible for both of us to sign up for the dining program, link the Discover card (same account number obviously), and get the bonuses 3000 mile each? I might expect having to go to burger king for $1 beverages on separate days because of that one dining per day small print.
