Now through April 28, you’ll earn up to 115,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles when you buy miles for yourself, or add up to 115,000 bonus miles to your purchase when you gift miles to a friend or loved one. That’s a total of up to 265,000 miles.
Up To 115,000 Bonus American Miles
If you purchase 150k miles, you will get a 115k bonus for $4,425 or 1.67 cents per mile, which isn’t that bad of a deal if you know how to leverage your American AAdvantage miles.
Terms and conditions
AAdvantage members must purchase at least 6,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy or Gift Miles program beginning 7:00:00am CT on March 28, 2016 to 11:59:59 pm CT April 28, 2016, to be eligible for bonus miles. The applicable bonus miles are awarded to the recipient for Gift Miles transactions. The bonus miles earned are calculated based on each individual purchase amount and the corresponding bonus award. Bonus miles earned do not count toward the annual limits.
The miles purchased with the Buy Miles program and received with the Gift Miles program do not count towards AAdvantage Gold, AAdvantage Platinum, AAdvantage Executive Platinum or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status qualification. Transactions are nonrefundable and nonreversible. The miles successfully purchased or transferred will post to the designated account immediately. 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. The price of your purchase is in U.S. dollars. Your credit card company may add a currency conversion fee.
Always do the math to make sure it makes sense for you to purchase miles. With this deal, buying American AAdvantage miles at 1.67 cents per mile isn’t that bad of a deal and something I would consider.
