American Airlines has announced their latest Buy Miles promotion, which is running now through January 6, 2019, where you can earn up to 120,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles. American Airlines constantly offers promotions when purchasing miles, so I’m not the least surprised to see another one being offered.

With this new offer if you wanted to buy 150,000 American AAdvantage miles, meaning you’d receive the 120,000 bonus for a total of 270,000 miles for $4,791 including taxes and fees, which comes out to about 1.77 cents per mile, which is a decent price if you’ve looking to add to your AAdvantage balance.

Offer Details: 

Get up to 120,000 bonus miles when you buy or gift American Airlines AAdvantage® miles through January 6, 2019.

Use your eligible AAdvantage® credit card to earn additional miles for every dollar you spend.
