30% off American AAdvantage miles purchases through Sunday, April 24

As part of American’s “30 Deals in 30 Days” promotion, they’re offering a 30% discount on purchased American AAdvantage miles through 11:59PM CST on Sunday, April 24. Registration is required.

You’re allowed to purchase a maximum of 40,000 AAdvantage miles per year per account, and through this offer those 40,000 miles would cost you $782.50, which is just under two cents per mile. This is by no means a killer deal, but not a bad deal either.

I have no plans to buy miles through this promotion, though if you’re 40,000 miles away from million miler status with American, this might be worthwhile given the changes on the horizon


  1. Eek – “Prices are in U.S. dollars and do not include applicable taxes or $30 per transaction processing charge. “

  2. I did purchase some miles under this promo because it is a fair price for extra miles. However, as a alert to readers, after registering and completing my purchase at the 30% discount, the e-mail confirmation showed I had been given only a 20% discount. So now I’m having to get AA CS to straighten it all out. It may be a website glitch so heads up to any who are interested in this promo.

  3. Update: It was a website glitch. Purchase was for the 30% discount but the confirmation e-mails aren’t coordinated with the promo. AA is working on a fix but charge will be for the correct 30% discount. BTW- as a UA 1K I was nevertheless extremely impressed with the AAdvantage CS on this. Very proactive and helpful. Really nice folks.
