- American Airlines is offering up to 50,000 bonus miles by completing qualifying activities with AA partners.
There are 10 available partners, and you’ll need to complete a minimum qualifying activity with all 10 of them to get the full 50,000. BUT you can do some and still get bonus miles, just not the full 50k.
Here’s the list of partners along with the minimum number of miles earned to qualify (earning 1 mile with these partner won’t work – you have to meet the threshold):
- AAdvantage eShopping – 3,000 miles required
- AAdvantage Dining – 500 miles required
- 1800flowers – 2,000 miles required
- Avis or Budget – 1,500 miles required
- Miles for Opinions – 300 miles required
- Lifelock – 7,000 miles required
- Sprint – 417 miles required
- Rocketmiles – 5,000 miles required
- Vinesse – 500 miles required
- Hilton – 1,000 miles required
Check the main bonus page for various special offers at each of the qualifying partners which can help you reach these minimums.
The Fine Print
- Must register first
- Earn with partner merchants by December 31, 2017 to qualify for this offer
The shopping portal will probably be easiest for most of our readers. Remember, you can currently get 4,000 AAdavtange miles with $1,200 in shopping, and that will qualify as one partner activity. (Even is you just spend $600 you can potentially qualify since you’ll get 2,000 bonus portal miles + base portal miles which might add up to 3,000.) At a minimum, you’ll get 500 bonus points for doing that. Be sure to register first for this partner offer deal; it’s not like the portal bonus which is automatic.
AAdvantage Dining might be another one people will be able to do. Miles for Opinions has a 250 offer for doing the first survey which brings you pretty close to the required 300. Meeting that threshold can net you thousands of miles in conjunction with this promo. There’s also an Amex Offer at Harry&Davids which works for 1800flowers purchases too, so the 1800flowers idea might be an option for some. Those who use Sprint might be able to earn that way. Travelers can see about earning with Hilton, Avis, or Budget. And you can earn 10,000 miles for signing up with Lifelock which puts you over the 7,000 required threshold.
Each extra activity you do gets you to bigger numbers. The first one just gets you 500. Add a second and you’ll get 1,00 more (1,500 total bonus). Do a third and get 1,500 more (3,000 total bonus). Do four and get 2,000 more (5,000 total). Depending where you’re holding in the list, it becomes more and more worthwhile to deal with the hassle of something like signing up for Lifelock or doing some surveys.
