Earn American AAdvantage miles by subscribing to emails

American is offering bonus miles to select AAdvantage members for subscribing to their email lists. The promotion is called “The Appraiser,” and if you’re actually eligible, be ready for what can only be described as the cheesiest promotion ever.

Unfortunately the promotion seems to be targetted only at people that don’t currently subscribe to their emails, and based on the reports I’ve seen, unsubscribing and then trying to participate doesn’t work. No one in my family except my mother was eligible, and she earned 3,000 miles for the promotion. Let’s hope they post.

Anyway, it only takes a few seconds, so check if you’re eligible by entering your AAdvantage number here.

Good luck!

  1. So I just enrolled in AAdvantage, never having had an account with them before, and it seems I’m not eligible. Oh well.

  2. how long does it take to post?
    it said I got 3000 miles but my account does not have them yet

  3. I got 2000, but oddly enough I’m already subscribed to their emails. Meanwhile my husband got nothing and he isn’t.

  4. Me 2500, wife 2500, son 3000 = 8000 miles for 3 minutes at the computer – thanks for the information

  5. you guys should UNSUBSCRIBE before doing the appraisal. I got 2000, one kid 1000 the other kid 3000 and the hubby nothing, all go to the same email

  6. Thank you for the post, Ben!

    My parents and in-laws all got 3,000 a pop. Unfortunately myself and Mrs. PedroNY did not get any.

    Cheers,

    PedroNY

  7. @mike & @flyer – The miles post 6 weeks after you complete 3 months of subscribing for email.

    That’s a lot of email, but I’ll do it for the miles!

  8. surprisingly it tells me I qualify for 3K miles. I already get some emails from them but I think those may go to a different address. Thanks for the tip!

  9. Regarding when the miles should post (from the T&Cs): “(Miles) will be automatically deposited into the participant’s AAdvantage® account six (6) weeks after the end of each applicable three (3) month email enrollment period.”

    Will get 1500 for me, 2500 each for wife and daughter … plus a reset for miles expiration date, I assume.

  10. And did you notice in the T&Cs that they are valuing 500 miles at $49.75! Almost 10 cents a mile??? At least we don’t be 1099’s for this “gift”.

  11. Evidently I was already being sufficiently spammed and only got 1,000. Will be sure to unsubscribe from a few when the points post 😉

  12. Wow, excellent lead on the AA miles. Both my husband and myself qualified for 3000 miles each, even though I was already signed up for emails! Thank you!!

  13. Here is the fine print on the “Gift of Miles.”

    Approximate retail value of Gift is $49.75 for each 500 AAdvantage® bonus miles. To be eligible to receive any Gift, participant must keep each subscription(s) and preferences for a three (3) month period. Gift will be automatically deposited into the participant’s AAdvantage® account six (6) weeks after the end of each applicable three (3) month email enrollment period.
