American Airlines has announced their latest Buy Miles promotion, where you can earn up to 105,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles through January 10, 2021. 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 105,000 bonus for a total of 255,000 miles for $5,643.75 including taxes and fees, which comes out to about 2.21 cents per mile, which is not a good deal, as we’ve much better bonuses in the past, so I’d personally advise waiting for a better offer.
For context, American recently offered a similar promotion Earn Up To 125,000 Bonus American AAdvantage Miles, which came out to 1.73 cents. American seems to have some bonus offer each month, so I wouldn’t purchase speculatively given the current conditions of air travel.
- Start the new year planning your next adventure with up to 70% bonus miles when you buy or gift miles.
- Use your eligible AAdvantage® credit card to earn additional miles for every dollar you spend.
