American Airlines has launched a new offer to buy AAdvantage miles with a combined bonus + discount through March 6, 2020.
The number of miles a member can buy before any bonuses is 150,000 per calendar year and the account that purchases or receives the miles must have been open for a minimum of 30 days.
You can access this offer on AA’s website here.
Bonus & Discount Table:
The price of a mile purchased under this offer at the 150,000 miles level (232,500 with bonus) is 1.86 US cents each. The lowest price that American has sold its miles in previous years has been around 1.72 US cents each.
American Airlines sells its AAdvantage miles at a discount monthly, and it seems that this 1.86 US cents per mile is their regular price.
It is difficult to get excited about buying AA miles at this price. I would take a pass unless you need some right now and have a worthwhile redemption on hold.
These are the Terms & Conditions for this promotion:
- Prices are in U.S. dollars. Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible
- The miles successfully purchased usually post to the designated account right away, but please allow up to 8 hours for processing
- Offers to eligible members may vary and are subject to change by American without notice to you
- AAdvantage miles purchased do not count toward elite-status qualification or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status
