The American Airlines AAdvantage shopping mall is having an awesome promotion right now until September 30, 2013 for both new and existing users. If you haven’t shopped through the AAdvantage shopping mall before, now is the time!
The way their shopping mall works is you first sign up for a free account with your AAdvantage number, name, zip code and email address. Then once you are logged in, you just start your online shopping session by clicking on their link to go to a merchant. I.e. if you want to shop at Walgreens, just search for Walgreens then click on the “Shop Now” link that will take you to the same Walgreens site as if you typed Walgreens.com in but this time you will get AAdvantage miles for every purchase!
There are literally hundreds of merchants to choose from so it shouldn’t be hard to find SOMETHING you can spend $35 on. I buy and sell a lot of things at Sears so I will probably buy a $50 physical gift card where I get 4 Miles/$ spent and use it at some point in the future. This will work with both credit cards and debit cards and even prepaid cards such as the Bluebird. Make sure you read the terms and conditions for each merchant because sometimes certain items such as gift cards won’t earn miles.
For new users who haven’t used the AAdvantage Mall before the offer is 2,000 miles for a $35 purchase.
For existing users like me, the offer is 1,000 miles for a $35 purchase.
I will be taking advantage of this and you should too! Feel free to comment if you have any questions on how this works.
I noticed on my Facebook that American Airlines is having a little promotion for a Disney movie that is coming out. The cool part is if you play their little game (which takes about 60 seconds) then they give you a 10% off coupon code for a flight from the US to anywhere American flies! They are only giving away 100,000 codes so go ahead and do it now even if you are not sure you will have any travel.
Travel dates for the ticket you buy must be August 15-November 15 and there is a blackout over Labor Day Weekend(Aug 30-Sep 2). You need to book by August 13 to apply the coupon. Click here to get started.
Here is a step by step:
First you click on Explore the Sky
Then click on Take Off
Then it goes through a 15 second training thing then you click on Start Flying.
Once you have hit 3 of the icons in the sky, the Register button will light up and you can click on it to put in your email address for the coupon code!
Enjoy! You can also repeat it again if you have an alternate email address to get an additional code. And don’t forget to Like us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter!
All of my fellow Facebook and Twitter junkies will appreciate this. The Admiral’s Club is a lounge provided for use when you are traveling on American Airlines around the globe. It usually has free wifi, snacks and OPEN BAR for some alcohol. It’s a great way to have a free drink or three while you are waiting for your flight. American charges $50 for these passes, so this is a pretty good value for just showing them how connected you are. I hadn’t signed up for Klout before but it looks like a pretty good site to measure your social networking influence.
Just click on the big blue Go button then connect to Klout via either your Facebook or Twitter. It will then give you your score and tell you if it is good enough to get the free day pass (55+). The consolation prize is $50 off an annual Admiral’s club pass which kind of is worthless IMO.
So what are you waiting for, click here and see if your score is up to par to get free open bar before your flight. This could come in handy before Detroit at the end of the month!
Sometimes it is so easy to get miles, it is hard to believe. Now through December 17, 2012, American is offering 500 AAdvantage miles for completing a survey on Facebook. To get these miles you have to do the following (you will need to do this from a computer, not a mobile phone since it uses tabs).
- Sign up for a free American Airlines AAdvantage account here if you don’t have one.
- “Like” the American Airlines Facebook page here.
- “Like” the American AAdvantage Facebook page here.
- Click on this link and complete the survey.
That’s it! Boom! 500 free AAdvantage miles within 6-8 weeks.
Remember too that you can add an extra 100,000 miles by getting the 50,000 Citibank AAdvantage Visa and the 50,000 Citibank AAdvantage Amex. These are both part of our Easy Quarter Million program.
