  1. Using the word “rack” in a breast cancer post is an interesting choice 🙂

    Seriously I’m not really a fan of Susan Komen foundation and don’t really trust them. I wish AA could have picked a different charity or breast cancer org.

  2. Im not a tax lawyer but I wonder if the miles mean you cant take this as a tax write-off.

    If not, this seems like a great deal way to support this cause (if you like the charity of course), particularly for people paying a high marginal tax rate. Figure for every dollar you give, you get 30 cents worth of miles (using Lucky’s valuation) and lets say 30 cents worth of tax deduction.

  3. @Dan, I just did a little research on the site and it says they value AA miles at 3 cents per mile for deduction purposes. I’m pretty sure this means you would reduce the amount of your tax deduction by the amount of value you received in return. So at 3 cents per mile, that would eat into a person’s deduction quite a bit. Good thought though, I was thinking about it!
