A week or so ago, I mentioned the British Airways 100,000 Avios miles deals and also the US Airways 250,000 Bonus Miles deals. But I overlooked the fact that American Airlines was running similar deals as well. So here a recap of the present promotions they are having to encourage you to fly with them, or use their partners and earn some extra AA miles.
Firstly, AA has a very similar deal to BA for flights to Canada and Europe. For the first round trip that you make in First Class, Business Class or Select Economy Class Tickets, you will get 15,000 bonus AA miles. For the second trip, you will get 35,000 bonus miles. From the third trip onwards, you get 50,000 bonus miles each time you fly. You can earn unlimited bonus miles with this promotion. This means that if you are a few transatlantic flight planned or flights to Canada, you are in for a bumper bonus. The participating airlines include American, BA and Iberia.
This promotion is good for flights from 25th September 2012 until 31st January 2013.
Triple Miles At Radisson Hotels – AA members can also earn triple miles until 20th December 2012 when they stay at Radisson Hotels.
4X Points with Hertz Booking – AA members can earn 4X miles per dollar when they book a Hertz car rental and get up to a 35% discount as well. This deal is good until 30th November 2012. You simply need to rent for a day or more and renting at the following countries qualify: U.S., Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The discount code is CDP# 217692, PC# 169676. And you obviously need to have your AA number when you book it.
Up to 10,000 Bonus Miles For Buying AA Miles – AA has a bonus promotion going on now until the end of October for those buying miles. For simply buying miles, you will get a 25% bonus. The minimum miles you must buy is 6,000 and the maximum is 40,000. Within this range, you will earn anywhere from 1,500 to 10,000 miles. You can also earn bonus miles when you need to top up your account for an award ticket. Once again, minimum purchase required to earn bonus miles starts at 6,000.
30,000 Bonus Miles for AA card – Lastly, the current sign up bonus for their credit card is 30,000 miles. Not the best that we have seen, but pretty decent. This promotion has no end date and I expect it to run longer than the above mentioned ones. (See Review)
