American Airlines has launched a new offer to purchase or gift AAdvantage miles up to a 90,000 bonus through July 31, 2021.
A while back, American Airlines upped the number of miles you can buy before any bonuses to 150,000 every calendar year. In addition, 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.
Here’s the bonus table:
The price of 150,000 miles with a 90,000 miles bonus:
The cost of a mile under this offer at the highest bonus is 2.02 cents each.
The lowest price that American has sold its miles in the past year has been 1.72 cents each.
The price for the miles under this offer is high, and unless you need miles now for a specific purpose, I would wait for a better offer to come around.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
AAdvantage members must purchase at least 5,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program from 12:00:00am CT July 1, 2021 to 11:59:59pm CT July 31, 2021, to be eligible for bonus miles. From 7/1-7/31, American Airlines will donate 1 AAdvantage mile to USO for every mile purchased, up to a maximum of 20 million miles.
