American Airlines has paused mileage expiration through June 30, 2021. Any miles scheduled to expire between now and June 30th will now expire on July 1, 2021.

Interested in earning American Airlines AAdvantage® miles without having to pick up a credit card or hop on a flight with American and their partners? How about 5 AAdvantage® miles simply for having a comment approved on our blog?

We want you to share and engage with us. For that, we'll provide you 5 miles towards any active AAdvantage® account you have linked to your AwardWallet user profile. You're limited to earning 5 miles per AwardWallet user per day, so come back and comment each day. We've answered most questions below, so please read on for more details.

Want an Even Easier Way to Earn AAdvantage® Miles?

If you want to earn AAdvantage® miles on autopilot, we recommend opening a Bask Savings Account. Each month, instead of interest you'll earn miles. Every dollar you save earns one mile annually—and that can add up fast for your next big trip.

Bask Bank awards miles based on your savings balance at the end of each month, so you'll never need to worry about generating AAdvantage® account activity. Check out our full review, or visit Bask's website to learn more.


Frequent Questions on Earning Miles for Comments

Who is eligible? Anyone with a valid AAdvantage® account linked to their AwardWallet account.

Where do I go to earn miles? Visit the comments section on any of our blog posts. (Including this one)

When do I earn the miles? Miles can be earned on a daily basis and will be submitted for deposit each day, however, it may take up to 5 business days for the miles to post to your account. If your miles will expire in less than 5 business days, we've listed some fast ways to generate activity in our post about the AAdvantage® mile expiration policy.

What if I leave multiple comments? We're happy to hear from you multiple times per day. But you'll only earn 5 miles for the first comment. Our day starts at 12:00 a.m. and ends at 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern time. We use the time your comment is submitted to the blog (rather than when it is approved and published) to determine whether you will be awarded miles.

How do I make sure my comments are approved? Comments on the AwardWallet Blog are moderated to protect against spam and other nonsense—we read every single one.

Please put a little thought into your comment and make sure it's relevant to the post. We don't usually approve comments that don't add value to the conversation (like “Thanks!” or “Good to know“). Engaging with us, sharing your experiences, and providing constructive feedback/ideas to both AwardWallet and other readers will ensure your comments are approved.

How do I pick an AAdvantage® account to credit the miles? After you leave a comment, you'll receive one of two pop-ups. If you're logged in to AwardWallet in the same browser (different tab perhaps), you'll receive the pop-up immediately below. If you're NOT logged in to your AwardWallet account, you'll receive the message further down. You'll need to log in to AwardWallet in a different tab and click the refresh accounts button; you'll then see a list of the AAdvantage® accounts that are linked and valid.

    My miles are set to expire tomorrow, I’ve been unfortunately neglecting my email but I finally spent some time sifting through my inbox and got an alert from AwardWallet. Seems like I’ll be safe since they’ve paused actual point expiration through June 30, 2021 and I’ll be able to generate some acccount movement in the meantime. But but this is exactly why I love AwardWallet and recommend to my friends! Thanks!

    I began using Award Wallet when I got started in the miles biz a few years ago. Nice tools, fun to see my balance growing. But just recently I’ve seen the real value of this site. As fees have come due and points are close to expiring, Award Wallet notifies me. How cool is that?! Definitely considering the upgrade. Thanks for all you do and for this handy little AA bonus.

    BTW, I only remembered my AA points were close to expiring because AW emailed me! And now here they are, solving the problem. Thanks guys.

    First I appreciate that you do award AA miles, second I appreciate the reminder in this post regarding the rules and requirements. While most of my posts have been approved and miles have been added to my account, I cann’t say that each post has added something to the conversation in order to generate miles. Hope to continue to see more useful posts to comment on each day and am looking forward to a post analyizing today’s news regarding a new AA miles sale.

    I have just signed up for AwardWallet about 2 weeks ago .. and this is probably one of the most brilliant apps out . It made me realise to start signing up for rewards programs and to actually keep track of what I am doing as I travel a lot . This is the 1st time I actually can start to look at ever with a bigger picture as I was just throwing miles away I never knew I could have . So this is also brilliant that you are offering American airline points for leaving a comment , esp during a pandemic when it’s harder to earn points. Honestly this app is wonderful. So thank you 😊

    This is a good way to extend the expiration of american airline miles. I wish they just follow the other airlines and get rid of the expiration all together. Can you also allow earning of points in other programs like the hotel loyalty programs so we can extend the expiration of hotel programs.

    Safuvan Padannayil says:

    AwardWallet recently issued 5 AA miles into my partner’s account which helped us save 55K AA Miles. With us temporarily living in London, it has become increasingly difficult to earn any new AA Miles. The only co-branded card (Citi) won’t allow us to keep their cards while you live outside of the States! So really the only way to keep our miles active was by getting the 5 miles credit from AwardWallet and it is really appreciated.

    I now hope I can also get 5 AA Miles added to my AA Account and save my miles from expiring.

    As always, thanks a ton.

    I have appreciated the points for making a comment on this blog for a long time. It’s a great incentive but also helps make this one of the most useful points and miles blogs to follow. Other readers often provide valuable hints about points and miles earning. It also helps that these blog articles are some of the most polished and professional of all the points and mikes blogs. Please keep up the high writing standard. I think that many readers appreciate it.

  • Avatar

    I appreciate AA helping out customers by pushing back expiry dates, especially as airlines are really struggling and one way to save money would be to not have to give free flights to people whose FF miles have expired.

    My concern is that if travel restrictions (especially international travel) continue beyond mid-2021, which is very possible, this won’t really help.

    For example, my 20 years-worth of FF miles expire in mid-June, but I have been unable for almost a year to book an award flight (I currently live outside the US). Postponing my expiry date from mid-June to July 1st doesn’t really help if I am still unable to book international flight before then.

    I have a handful of miles (15K) with AA Advantage that are set to expire on 1/4/2021. That’s not a lot of miles, but I’d like to keep them since I plan to sign up for a bonus CC soon, and every mile counts when its time to redeem. So, I was scrambling to find a way to earn a few miles to extend my expiration date buy 18 months. AwardWallet to the rescue! By posting to this blog, I earn 5 AA miles. But, what’s even better, is that AwardWallet provided notification that AA had postponed my expiration date until 7/1/2021. Thus, the bottom line is that I didn’t have to do this post today, but I decided to do so anyway to say “Thank You AwardWallet” for all of the great info and tools that you provide. I’ve used your service for several years now, and I truly appreciate it. Thanks!

      Sure, as long as you have all six AA accounts connected to AwardWallet. Each time you submit a comment, it will ask you which account you want the miles credited to. Just remember that it’s a max of 5 miles per 24-hour period, so you’ll need to space comments out over six days to credit a bonus to all the accounts.

    This is an extremely useful benefit to keep AA accounts active, especially during the pandemic when most people aren’t able to fly safely. Thank you for doing this!

    Hey, thanks for this. It’s really helpful since I was still not sure if I should go ahead and buy tickets for next year.

    How fortunate for me that I signed up for Award Wallet. I appreciate the expiry reminder as I may have lost my points otherwise. This is a busy time of year. It immediately prompted me to action to keep my points from expiring with this simple method of commenting. Award Wallet also invited me to add my other rewards cards which prompted me to check their expiry dates as well. Thank you!

    I received an email that said my American Airlines miles would soon expire. Checking on AwardWallet, I found ways to extend the mileage expiration date. The way that fit my need was simply to post a comment on any AwardWallet Blog and then receive 5 AA miles. This addition of 5 miles to my AA account suffices for activity required to get an 18 month extension on the miles in my AA account. This is an excellent solution during the Covid pandemic as flying may not be an option.

      Miles will post within 5 business days of your comment being approved. If you have miles that have expired or are expected to expire within 5 business days we highly recommend you look at alternative means to keep your miles alive. Purchasing miles is the fastest way we’ve seen.

    I just received an email from Award Wallet letting me know that my husband’s American Advantage miles will be expiring soon. Thank you. However, when I went to your blog post, I saw that AA mileage will not expire until July of next year. Am I right to assume that you are and have no plans to make a wholesale update on our accounts to reflect such changes. I get it if you aren’t.

    • Avatar

      As per our agreement with American Airlines, we have a direct integration with them, meaning that we are not accessing your data from their website instead we connect directly to their database via API call. So, this date we get via API. I would recommend you to login to your AAdvantage account and check your expiration date.

    Would like to add other way to earn AA miles. Recently, I received a mail from PickNRG, stating that I can using their electricity and nature gas service to get sign up bonus. The sign up bonus is 10,000 AA miles for signing up electricity account, and 2,500 AA miles for signing up nature gas account. Plus, they give 2 AA miles for each dollar you spend on your NRG account. They offer rates lower than current supplier. It sound like a good deal to me. Not sure if anyone in the community has already signed up. Would love to hear some DPs on this.

    Thank you for offering AA miles for comments. It is great to engage in the conversation and keep miles from expiration.

    My wife’s large amount of miles were expiring soon.

A quick search told me my Award Wallet account could help by earning 5 AA miles for a blog comment. Yet another way AW is adding value for me! Thanks.

    With business air travel down so drastically, I wish airlines would be more forgiving and generous on mileage expiration. It is a good thing I read the email notification from award wallet because otherwise I never would have known that my miles were going to expire (I got no advance warning from ĈÂ. And this program from Award Wallet is an amazing way they are helping their readers protect their miles. Pass on the word to friends and family so they don’t lose their miles either. Dan

    It’s been difficult to keep up with all the changes to the various loyalty programs lately due to COVID.
    It’s nice to see things in one place – including new expiry dates of programs and vouchers. As I haven’t done a lot of travel lately, I don’t check all my programs as frequently as I used to.
    It’s important to keep on top of these things as it would get expensive to make a mistake and miss an expiry date.

    This is fantastic, just discovered that we can extend our AA miles by posting a comment here. Gone are the days of purchasing magazine subscriptions we don’t want in order to extend AA miles.

  • Avatar

    It’s a bummer that AA’s mileage expiration program is chugging along. I really appreciate the 5 point engagement that this blog is doing! Pretty cool for the community. Besides this strategy for adding AA points, I like the dining option where you can use your card to double dip on normal credit card rewards and AA rewards through the dining awards program.

  • Avatar

    Is there a software that could automatically charge $1 or a small amount to an AA-affiliated card once the expiration approaches? Something of a fail-safe software to prevent expiration.

  • Avatar

    Thanks for this tip! Seriously AW is the best tool out there and the info that you guys provide really helps me manage all my points and keep track of things such as expiration. This is the 2nd time it has notified me of an expiration with good advance notice for me to do something about it. Flying Blue miles were set to expire end of 2019 and luckily I charged a DL flight to Flying Blue in time to keep points active.

    I started using AwardWallet last year.
    Initially, only to keep my points organized in one place. Then the travel ban hit in Canada and even though my travel is non-essential, I definitely didn’t want to have to lose all the points I had because I was unable to travel outside the country and didn’t have a flight company credit card to help me maintain my air miles. Thank you so much AwardWallet, for existing, during these trying times!

    I did quite a bit of travel over the years – American Airlines in particular – and things have been going well. Due to COVID-19, I have stopped all travel – like most of us. As a result, I have had zero activity on my AwardMiles accounts this year, and things are starting to expire. To be honest, I would have thought the Airlines would have made an exception – but such is life.

    Thanks for providing a method by which we can show/have activity on our account to maintain those hard-earned miles.

    I really appreciate AwardWallet sending reminder emails when points are about to expire. It’s a bit disappointing that some Airlines are starting to resume the expiration of points even though we are still very much in the middle of a pandemic. As someone who has a health condition, I am still not comfortable flying and it would be a shame to lose all of my American Airlines frequently flier points. I understand that post-COVID, the airlines are leaning towards more flexible change policies (long term) and I think this is great when the rest of the travel industry (hotels and rental car companies) have found a way to do this.

    Very useful information and I always appreciate AwardWallet’s keeping me updated on balances and upcoming expirations.

    It seems that AA is among the last of the major airlines to hold on to expiration dates for miles. Between my frequent flyer accounts, all these no longer have expiration dates: Delta, United, JetBlue, Southwest. I suppose these folks understand that customers are pretty attached to their mile accruals, and the risk of pissing us off is not worth the potential cost savings.

    I probably don’t take advantage of AwardWallet enough but what I have used is super helpful and convenient; namely it’s one stop shop for all my reward accounts. The mileage expiration notification is also useful since I wouldn’t have realized my AA miles are expiring soon. In exploring my options for renewing my AA miles (I was sure I would have to subscribe to a magazine I would never read), I was excited to learn about the five mile bonus AwardWallet offers. Thank you for making this easy on a new mom. Now, if someone can explain to me why AA hasn’t gotten on the miles don’t expire bandwagon, I will be an even happier camper.

    Another method I used recently to avoid expiration was to link my account (Hilton HHonors in this case) to my Amazon account. Then I was able to use as little as 1000 points for cash value against any purchase. Painless and who can’t use something from Amazon?

    Thanks for providing an easy way to renew AA miles. My best redeemption of AA miles was JFK-AUH-DEL in F on an A-380 for 110K AA miles

    This has been very helpful. I suggest people also log in to your accounts at least once a year. I don’t seem to be able to log in to one of my AA credit card accounts anymore. It was likely closed due to inactivity.

    That’s very helpful! I was still hoping AA would extend the expiration of our miles due to current situation but won’t take chance anymore.

  • Avatar

    My AA miles are set to expire in October (even though I had seen postings around the web of mile expiration being deferred through the end of 2020), so I’m playing it safe and generating some earning activity.

    In addition to the miles-for-comments offer here, I just signed up for a Bask account. The best savings account interest rates these days are ~0.7%, so the effective earnings rate at Bask really isn’t that bad!

    Pro tip: find a referral link to use when you sign up to get an extra 5000 bonus mile offer (without being referred, you can only earn 1000 bonus miles at signup). Bask’s bonus mile offers earlier this year were much better based on blog posts I’ve seen, but given the circumstances with COVID I’ll take what I can get. 🙂

    Thanks!

    This is an awesome tool! I only fly with American every so often since other airlines are more convenient for the routes I fly most frequently, and with the current travel situation I haven’t been doing any leisure travel to other locations that AA services. I know they’ve put expirations on hold until December 1, but this will give me a couple months cushion in case they don’t renew that again.

    Will have to check out the Bask Savings Account option but for now hoping that this comment will get me through infrequent travel during these COVID times. Random thought: I feel like airlines should go back to waiving all baggage fees for the first 2 checked bags since planes are flying with less passengers and therefore less weight these days. Anyone else feel that way, or am I missing something?

    Nice to find another way of preventing my AA miles from expiring. As Canadians, and other non U.S. residents, we do not qualify to take part in the e shopping program, the dining program and the survey program… all ways that we could have continued to grow our AAdvantage points. Sure wish these airlines would open up the shopping, dining and survey programs to ALL members of their AAdvantage club. Otherwise, it is very difficult to find a way of adding points to our account a little at a time. I appreciate the time members take in posting their comments. This is how I found out about getting points for comments on award wallet.

However I am not sure why I can no longer get the expiration date for those (and a few others) without ‘upgrading’ … or rather, what the logic is when AwardWallet wants to me upgrade and when I can still get the expiration date without upgrading. Given that I track for many family members this may not be effective for me in the long run as I hoped … tbd.

    Hope to use all my miles after this pandemic goes away.
    Thank you AwardWallet for keeping me posted about miles expiration, and for the great service you provide.

    This is by far the easiest way to earn free mile. I’m very grateful for this generous offer from AwardWallet. Let’s hope this will extend my miles in time since my expiration date is less than 2 weeks from now.

    I’ve been an awardwallet subscriber for years and was researching ways that I could extend my American Airlines miles. AwardWallet is really useful in helping manage all of my loyalty programs and reward points. Am lucky to find that simply making a comment here could keep my American Airline miles from expiring. That’s just another perk of being an AwardWallet user I guess. Thanks for the service and tool.

    I so look forward to the day when airline travel returns and we all can get back to the business of earning and using miles! Thanks for all you do, AwardWallet, to get us through this weird time!

    Thank you so much! I can’t till this bad dream is over and we can start to travel normally again.

    This is amazingly helpful to extend my miles while I do not want to travel during a pandemic. I am looking forward to exploring all you have to offer. Thanks so much!

    I have been AwardWallet for years. Thanks lot for finding awesome ways to make our life easier. Keep up the great work 🙂

    If we do have to fly … is it save to fly even with a face mask? What about gloves – will this really help?

  • Avatar

    Awardwallet did an excellent job with this blog and especially helping us not to have miles expire. Now even more in this pandemic time which flying is basically not a real topic.

    Will the normal way of flying come back anytime soon?

    Thanks, very helpful as I had no idea blog comments could earn miles!

    Very useful tool. Would like to know how long it takes to receive 5 bonus AA miles. Thanks!

    Es un buen método para mantener vigentes las millas porque tuve que cancelar mi viaje programado de este año por cuestiones sanitarias de mi país, sería muy bueno que los programas de viajeros frecuentes sean prorrogados los vencimientos hasta de fin de año por lo menos.

    This is amazing! Thank you to this website My airline points are about to expire and wasn’t sure how to earn miles to keep my account active since I don’t want to book travel while things are still so uncertain with COVID-19 here in the U.S. I actually learned about this website from The Points Guy blog.

    This is awesome that this method to keep aa miles active is still around. Love it!

    Wow, I found your blog by looking through my account activity. I see that you saved my miles two years ago. It’s unbelievable that this trick is still around. Keep it up! Thanks again

  • Avatar

    I found this blog from reading the thePointsGuy. The info on how to keep your AAdvantage miles active is great, and much needed during the pandemic when many of us are wary about flying at this time. I have used the MagsForMiles program in the past to keep my miles from expiring, but it looks like American recently discontinued that program.

    Awesome Thank you for the helpful info!

    Thank you for this opportunity that you give us! My husband and I generally travel 2 or 3 times a year to different destinations, but with the situation that we are going through with the COVID-19, with trips and hotels canceled, knowing that my miles will last 18 more months is a relief.

  • Avatar

    AwardWallet is the best – sent me an email letting me know my Aadvantage miles were about to expire. Then, show me how to easily extend them just by posting on this page. Awesome!

    This is a really helpful blog post! I didn’t realize you could keep miles from expiring by transferring as little as 5 miles. Always learning something new from AwardWallet 🙂

  • Avatar

    It’s a great way to extend the expiring AA miles during this COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks!

  • Avatar

    Thank you for the helpful info!

  • Avatar

    I think it is ridiculous that AA is expiring miles during the coronavirus pandemic, but this is a nice measure to avoid that nonsense.

  • Avatar

    During this COVID-19 pandemic, it is a great way to extend the expiring AA miles by providing comments in this Blog and share with others with similar situation. Thanks for the offering and opportunities!

  • Avatar

    Thanks a lot! A tough year for all travelers.

  • Avatar

    This is so helpful. I have been using AwardWallet for years to keep me posted about the miles stays I have from different airlines. With such a busy schedule I have, is very difficult to keep on track all the numbers and fortunately with awardwallet I got this solved and just now I’m learning with this post how to earn Extra miles by just posting a comments? That’s amazing! AwardWallet is definitely the best!

  • Avatar

    This is very helpful to me. I also find the Award Wallet blog provides me with current information such as the update today about Alaska Airlines joining Oneworld sooner than anticipated. This is good news to me!

    Thanx for this post! We’ve been using Award Wallet for a couple of years but I’ve really been able to see the value during this Covid situation of no travel. I haven’t been as focused on our balances and exp dates so this post saved us (and both of our AA points.) I knew about the dining programs but had no clue that such a simple action of commenting on a blog I already read a lot could save our points. This is great!

    Award Wallet kept track of my miles expiring in over 10 accounts. While I didn’t worried much in the past years as my activities would renew my miles, recent covid development made me have zero activity since January.

    Thanks for this article, useful in a number of ways! First,y, I have a small number of AA miles, due to expire soon, so was looking for a straightforward way – from the UK – to keep these alive. Secondly, I was considering buying some AA miles in order that I have enough to redeem for another Oneworld airline reward seat; the difference in the number of miles needed and taxes due between the airlines is staggering.

    AwardWallet does a great job of tracking my travel accounts and also has informative articles to keep miles from expiring. I would highly recommend using this service.

    Emily Musser says:

    Wow, that’s super helpful info! My miles are expiring very soon, and I had pretty much given up hope. As a Hail Mary I clicked the link in the AwardWallet email reminder about how to keep them from expiring and thus came across this post. Consider my hope revived. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

    I received the notification from AwardWallet that my AA miles would be expiring soon. With Covid, I was unsure of the new policies and changes to the expiration dates. AwardWallet’s notification led me to investigate AA’s new policy. I appreciate the heads up during this hectic time. And the convenience of commenting to earn points and keep my miles is truly helpful! One less thing I have to stress about!

  • Avatar

    It is so hard to keep track of award plans and I am thankful that AwardWallet takes on the heavy lifting. The program made some changes during covid 19 and AwardWallet automatically updated and alerted me with my new expiration date. Its always a challenge when the miles start to expire while I scramble and figure out what to do but luckily I found this AwardWallet blog post about earning miles.

    This article and the post that led me here — “American Airlines Miles Resume Expiration on July 1, But There’s a New Exception” — were really helpful to navigate this complicated world of airline miles and making sure our precious miles don’t expire. Thank you to the authors!

    I love this service because it helps keep my miles from expiring. Unfortunately I found it too late to save all my United Airlines miles from expiring 🙁

    Sounds like a wonderful service. I would have liked to have met you before, I would have saved many miles from expiring on several occasions. I will start testing the service, I hope it works as it sounds. Thank you!

    AwardWallet is the perfect tool to track travel rewards. I have used it for years. It can track almost any type of loyalty points, such as frequent flier miles, hotel points, or credit card points, even foreign programs like local Brazilian rewards programs. Completely satisfied. Besides, this partnership with AAdvantage to earn miles is awesome. Thanks!! Best regards from Brazil!!

    Have been using Award Wallet for years to track my flight, hotel, rent-a-car and train rewards points. So convenient to have everything in one place and have mileage expirations tracked and flagged. But the greatest feature is the tips on how to keep miles from expiring. Like this posting feature to keep my AA miles from expiring. Thank you Award Wallet and AA!

    Roger Tufts says:

    While I am somewhat shocked that Airlines haven’t made sweeping changes to push out points expiry dates in the wake of the global pandemic, this is a helpful way to push back that date at least for AA! I was unaware of this option previously, despite using AwardWallet for some time now – thank you!

    How I can validate that commenting on those post are actually helping for providing extra Miles? I have done several comments, reviewing the blogs and I have not received any miles so far

    • Avatar

      Did you select your AA account while posting the comment? We see from our logs that there were no requests to deposit miles into Advantage number which is shown in your AwardWallet profile. Unfortunately, our automated system doesn’t allow for us to retroactively post miles. I would recommend you to leave another comment.

  • Avatar

    My miles expire in about a month. AA has gone downhill for years so I haven’t flown them in awhile. Hoping this works to renew my miles. Will comment more and check out other posts if this works. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the offer!

    This is really helpful — this means that I can avoid doing things like spending more than I otherwise would through a shopping or dining portal. This also got me to take a look at AwardWallet after hearing lots about it.
