American Airlines has launched a new buy & gift AAdvantage campaign with up to 35% discount for purchases made through May 31, 2018.
American Airlines upped a while back 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 the miles must have been open for minimum of 30 days.
You can access this offer on AA’s website here.
Here’s the discount schedule:
Here’s the price:
The price of a mile purchased under this offer at the 150,000 miles level and 35% off is 2.08 cents each.
The lowest price American sold miles in 2017 was 1.72 cents each and the price during the last sale in April was 1.81 cents per mile.
The price under this offer is too rich unless they sweeten it with bonus miles or additional discount during the sale. You need at least an additional 10% off to make this worthwhile.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
To be eligible for a discount AAdvantage members must purchase at least 4,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program beginning 7:00:00am CT on April 29, 2018 to 11:59:59pm CT on May 31, 2018. The prices shown include the applicable discount. The discount applies to the AAdvantage miles purchased and does not apply towards taxes or the $30 transaction processing fee.
The miles purchased with the Buy Miles program and received with the Gift Miles program do not count towards AAdvantage Gold, AAdvantage Platinum, AAdvantage Platinum Pro, AAdvantage Executive Platinum or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status qualification. Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. The miles successfully purchased or transferred usually post to the designated account right away, but please allow up to 8 hours for processing. 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. Prices are in U.S. dollars and do not include applicable taxes or $30 per transaction processing charge. The pricing and/or fee to Buy, Gift or Share Miles is subject to change without notice. Your credit card company may add a currency conversion fee.
