American Airlines has launched another buy & gift AAdvantage miles campaign and this time with up to 42.5% bonus + 10% off.
American Airlines upped last year the number of miles that you can buy before any bonuses to 150,000 every calendar year.
You can access this offer on AA’s website here.
Here’s the bonus schedule:
And the price:
The price of a miles purchased under this offer at the highest bonus (100,000 miles) is 2.13 cents each. The lowest price in one of the previous sales back in 2015 was 1.81 cents each.
I would pass this offer unless you need some AAdvantage miles right now. Remember that there is looming devaluation on its way that takes place on March 22, 2016 (read more here).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
AAdvantage members must purchase at least 20,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program beginning 12:00:01 am CT on February 2, 2016 to 11:59:59 pm CT March 1, 2016, to be eligible for bonus miles (purchase 20,000 miles or more by midnight CT on February 8th to receive a 10% discount on the mileage cost). The applicable bonus miles are awarded to the recipient for Gift Miles transactions. The bonus miles earned are calculated based on each individual purchase amount and the corresponding bonus award. Bonus miles earned do not count toward the annual limits. The discount applies to the AAdvantage miles purchased and does not apply towards taxes or the $30 transaction processing fee.
Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. The miles successfully purchased or transferred will post to the designated account immediately. Each AAdvantage member is limited to purchasing or receiving in a calendar year, a combined total of no more than 150,000 AAdvantage miles. Miles purchased through the Buy Miles program or received as a gift through the Gift Miles program count against this total. The miles purchased with the Buy Miles program and received with the Gift Miles program do not count towards AAdvantage Gold, AAdvantage Platinum, AAdvantage Executive Platinum or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status qualification. A confirmation email will be sent to the primary buyer/gifter and/or recipient, using the email address(es) associated with the AAdvantage account(s) and any additional email address provided. AAdvantage accounts less than 30 days old are not permitted to Buy or Gift Miles.
