This is a subject we haven’t talked about yet on TravelWithMiles, but this offer makes it worth discussing. American Airlines has a program for businesses to build brand loyalty called Business ExtrAA. Basically this is a miles type account for a business. It is meant for office managers, group bookings, or other people that book a reasonable amount of airline tickets. You typically get miles for every dollar you spend on airfare at a rate of one ExtrAA mile per $10 spent. Since a free roundtrip requires 2000 ExtrAA points, you need to spend at least $20K on airfare so it might take a while! They have other redemptions as well.
But right now, they are having a promotion with one of their partners called Vertical Response that is an email marketing firm where if you spend $5 you can get 1000 ExtrAA miles! This is enough for half of a roundtrip coach domestic fare or 3 Admiral Club passes at 300 ExtrAA miles each. When I went on my round the world trip, having lounge access was one of my favorite perks since I was in business class. Free wifi, free food and alcoholic drinks and a super comfortable spot to sit while you wait for your flight. I found myself trying to get to the airport a couple of hours early just to hang out in the lounge before my flight! Having the pass allows you to have lounge access even if you are flying coach that day!
So sign up for a Business ExtrAA account and then click on this link to sign up with Vertical Response. You do need to spend at least $5 to qualify for the 1,000 ExtrAA miles and the best way is to buy 334 emails for $5.01. Then the 1,000 miles will be yours!
Kudos to The Points Guy for publishing this offer.
