American Airlines has extended the buy miles for the second time, allowing you to buy AAdvantage miles at a 75% bonus through September 30, 2021.
American Airlines allows AAdvantage members to buy up to 150,000 miles before any bonuses. 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 75% bonus:
The price of a mile under this offer at the highest bonus is 1.84 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 specific award redemption, I would wait for a better offer to come around.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
- 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
