American Airlines Buy & Gift AA Miles 50% Holiday Bonus

Please note that the AAdvantage account can only receive a combined (bought or gifted) maximum of 40K miles per year that has now temporarily been raised to 60K. You can always open an account for each family member, however, to get around this limitation.

If you buy the maximum number of miles (60K) and receive the bonus (30K), you will receive 90K miles for $1808.75. The price of a mile under this offer is 2 cents.

American Airlines has a competitive award chart and as long as you totally avoid British Airways and to some extend Iberia flights, there are no fuel surcharges. On all other airlines, AA only charges actual charges/fees for award tickets

Conclusion

This is the best offer for 2012 to purchase American Airlines AAdvantage miles. I am not a huge fan of AA’s very restrictive routing and stopover rules, but the miles are very worthwhile for certain award redemptions.
