Got an interesting letter in the mail today, regarding my Citi American AAdvantage card

a poster of a company that has a couple of people on it

I haven’t seen anybody else post about this, so it’s possible that this is targeted (it does require a ‘special invitation’ number), but it’s also certainly possible that I just missed it.

Triple AAdvantage miles on online purchases

If you have this offer, you will get an extra 2X on all online purchases with your AAdvantage card (for a total of 3x), from now until 6/30/2015.  You’re capped at 2500 bonus miles, so you’d want to put no more than $1250 of spending on the card for this bonus.

This could be combined with the current offer through the AAdvantage shopping portal which is offering 2250 bonus miles for spending $700 through the portal.


(SEE ALSO: Earning miles through shopping portals)

(SEE ALSO: My experience with 19x points through shopping portals at Sears)

I see that is currently 9x (though that may be today only), So $1250 in spend through the portal at Sears would give you

  • 1250 * 9 = 11,250 miles from the portal bonus
  • 1250 miles from just purchasing
  • 2500 miles from this promotion
  • 2250 bonus miles from the shopping portal promotion

For a total of 17,250 miles, or 13.8 miles per dollar spent.

This was a bit more exciting when I thought it was triple miles on all purchases, but in case you were wondering, online purchases are “transactions made via a computer network or other online service” 🙂

Did you get this bonus?
