Through April 30, 2015 AAdvantage is celebrating the occasion of single loyalty program by offering up to 60,000 bonus miles when you buy AAdvantage miles. This is more than regular bonus we used to see with AAdvantage.
This is a tiered promotion, which means you have to buy 100,000 miles in ordered to get 60,000 bonus miles.
It will cost $3,201 to buy 100,000 miles, so you get 160,000 miles with the bonus. It comes to about 2 Cents/mile.
Is this a good deal?
40-50% bonus is regularly offered for buying AAdvantage miles, 60% bonus is very rare. This doesn’t mean you should buy mile speculatively.
Buy if you have a certain redemption in mind, these miles can be put to great use. You need 135,000 AAdvantage miles for a round trip business class ticket between USA and India.
You can redeem AAdvantage miles for travelling with British Airways , Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways on translantic routes. We are offering free award booking service for a limited time to help you find the perfect award.
A round trip business class ticket between USA and India will cost approximately $5,000. If redeemed with miles purchases from this promotion, you will have to spend $3,201 and you will still have 25,000 AAdvantage miles in your pocket.
You can always boost your mileage balance with the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCard, currently offering 50,000 miles as signup bonus after spending $3,000 or more in eligible purchases within 3 months.
Through April 30, you can buy AAdvantage miles with up to 60% bonus. This is certainly great promotion, if purchased with a specific redemption plan.
Consider boosting your mileage balance with Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select MasterCard before purchasing miles through this promotion.
