American Airlines has launched new buy & gift AAdvantage miles campaign and this time with up to 10% off combined with 35% bonus until June 1, 2016.
American Airlines upped last year the number of miles that you can buy before any bonuses to 150,000 every calendar year. Remember that the account that buys or receives miles must be minimum of 30 days old.
You can access this offer on AA’s website here.
Here’s the bonus schedule:
And the price:
The price of a mile purchased under this offer is 1.89 cents each that is 0.01 cents higher than during the previous sale (1.88 cents each).
You have to remember that American Airlines just devalued their award charts the other month, although buying can still make sense if you redeem for international business or first class.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
To be eligible for a 35% discount AAdvantage members must purchase at least 15,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program beginning 7:00:00am CT on May 4, 2016 to 11:59:59pm CT on June 1, 2016, (purchase 135,000 miles or more to also receive the applicable bonus miles). The prices shown include the 35% discount. The discount applies to the AAdvantage miles purchased and does not apply towards taxes or the $30 transaction processing fee. The bonus miles earned are calculated based on each individual purchase amount and the corresponding bonus award. The applicable bonus miles are awarded to the recipient for Gift Miles transactions. Bonus miles earned do not count toward the annual Buy/Gift purchase limits.
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. 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. 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. The price of your purchase is in U.S. dollars. Your credit card company may add a currency conversion fee.
