American Airlines just sent me a reminder email to participate to the Summer Miles Challenge to support their Kids in Need program. The key here is that you will receive 100 miles just for registering on Facebook and will have a chance to win lot more.
American Airlines will donate 100K AAdvantage miles to their Kids in Need program if 100K smiles is reached through this “game”.
The catch here is that you need to like Summer Miles Challenge on American Airlines’ Facebook page before you can access the application to enter your account information. You can easily unfriend/unlike once you have done your part, however.
After I filed the information the web page showed instantly that I would receive the 100 miles within 6 to 8 weeks after the promotion is over.
I haven’t normally participated to these promos for few points here and there, but I recently had to arrange couple of hundred miles to my brother’s AAdvantage account to be able to issue an award. You never know when few hundred miles might come handy.
