Every once in awhile, the stars align and you are able to find a few deals that just might work together. Tonight, I stumbled on just that type of thing.

Right now, if you click through the American Airlines shopping portal to Teleflora, you will earn 6 miles per dollar spent PLUS an extra 1,500 bonus miles on every order. Combine this offer with the 500 extra bonus miles on purchases of $200 or more that I wrote about here (ADD LINK) and you can end up with a good chunk of miles.

The Math

  • You will need to place seven separate orders for bouquets priced at $29.99
  • Total cost pre-tax and pre service fee: $209.65
  • Service fee: On my mock orders, it is showing a $19.99 fee per order so I would end up paying $139.65 in service fees.
  • Total out of pocket with service fee: $349.30

What Do You Get?

  • Seven bouquets of flowers
  • 1,257 base miles (6 points per dollar spent pre-tax)
  • 10,500 bonus miles (1,500 bonus per order)
  • 500 bonus miles for spending $200 or more
  • Total miles earned: 12,257

Where Can My Miles Take Me?

If you aren’t familiar with the American Airlines award chart, 7,500 miles is enough for MileSAAver level awards from the contiguous United States to locations in the contiguous 48 United States and Canada that are 500 miles away or less.

You need 12,500 miles for a MileSAAver level award from the contiguous United States to anywhere within the contiguous United States. You can also use the same amount of miles to redeem for a MileSAAver Off Peak award to the Caribbean, Mexico, or Central America.

With the math I did above, you would be 243 miles shy of that second award category. You could add on something to an order, or buy a more expensive bouquet. At 6 miles per dollar, you would need to spend $40.50 additional which could be achieved with few added boxes of chocolates, stuffed animals, or mylar balloons.

Final Thoughts

With all deals like this, there is always a YMMV aspect to it. It will take between 4-6 weeks for your bonus miles to post. You could also sweeten the deal if you were able to find a way around the service fee. I searched around but was unable to find any way to avoid paying that fee. Before placing your orders, do the math and make sure that it works for your needs and mile earning goals.
