The American Airlines AAdvantage program turns 35 years old this year and to celebrate, American has rolled out a new promotion where you can earn a quick, easy and free 350-700 AAdvantage miles, plus the chance to win 350,000 AAdvantage miles!
It is no secret that I am a pretty big fan of the AAdvantage program in general, but when an airline wants to offer me free frequent flyer miles for just a few minutes of my time, I become an even bigger fan. That is exactly what American is doing to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their AAdvantage program.
Through June 1st, you can enter AAdvantage’s Miles to Memories promotion where you can enter for a chance to win 1 of 35 grand prizes of 350,000 AAdvantage miles. Even better, you earn 350 AAdvantage miles just for entering!
Once you click ‘Register now’, you will be taken to another page where you can post directly to your Facebook page or Twitter account to earn an additional 350 AAdvantage miles. You can also e-mail the promotion out to your friends and family to qualify for the additional 350 AAdvantage miles.
You only need to choose one medium to share and will only earn the bonus once, so no need to do all 3.
Once you have shared, Tweeted or e-mailed the promotion out, you will receive a confirmation message from the AAdvantage team confirming that you have shared your milestone story and providing a link to claim your AAdvantage miles. I opted to Tweet out, so the Twitter team sent me this message:
The link leads you to a page where you simply enter your AAdvantage number and (in my case) Twitter handle.
After submitting my information, I was redirected to a confirmation screen which said the bonus miles should be in my account within 6-8 weeks (though I suspect they will be deposited sooner).
That is a pretty quick and easy way to earn an extra 700 AAdvantage miles!
So what would I do if I win the 350,000 bonus miles? I would use the miles to send my parents on a surprise trip – first class of course – as a thank you for always being there to support my (sometimes) crazy ambitions in life. Fingers crossed (at least) one of my readers wins!
This is a quick and easy way to earn an extra 350-700 American AAdvantage miles and I really cannot think of a reason not to take AAdvantage (::grin::) of this promotion! Plus you get the chance to win an additional 350,000 miles towards your next award trip!
Will you be taking AAdvantage of this quick and easy way to earn extra AA miles?
