Update: It appears as if not everyone gets the 500 AAdvantage miles, though it may still be worth playing as I got the 500 miles on the first try.
A few weeks ago American ran a cool promotion in conjunction with the Disney movie “Planes,” whereby they gave you a 10% off certificate just for playing a game online.
Well, it seems they’re offering a very similar promotion now, except they’re offering 500 bonus AAdvantage miles instead of a 10% off certificate. Ultimately you’re being entered to win a trip for four around the world, though I think the real prize is the 500 AAdvantage miles you get just for entering.
You can play the game here. You simply have to “hit” three of the targets with your plane (which, now that I write that, sounds a bit weird), and then you can click “Register.”
You’ll be prompted to enter your name, email, and AAdvantage number.
Then within seconds you should receive an email confirming that the 500 bonus AAdvantage miles will post within 7-10 business days.
The whole process should take less than two minutes, and for what it’s worth I value AAdvantage miles at around 1.8 cents each, so to me that’s $9 “worth” of miles. Now if only I could find a job where I could bill that on an hourly basis. 😉
