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.

    What a great idea. Very low cost for AwardWallet, but very high value for travelers to make sure miles/points don’t expire.

    I had not heard of this site before being directed here by a friend, and am now exploring around – seems like a very useful way to keep track of my multitude of loyalty programs. I used to do that in a spreadsheet, lol, but it was hard to keep up to date.

    I’m glad there are ways for customers to save their hard earned mileage points through these uncertain times. 🙏🏾

    Like others, I have not been traveling during the pandemic. I am thrilled to learn ways to keep the miles I have accumulated over the years (and even earn more without going anywhere!). I didn’t realize that the expiration date didn’t apply to children. It was a relief to know that I don’t have to worry about them losing their rewards as well. Thank you. I look forward to the day that we’re ready to travel again!

    I love AwardWallet. I have numerous accounts and loyalty balances and AwardWallet is the only way I can easily navigate and manage these accounts so I can use them to their full value (and keep my sanity)! I don’t even have to remember to check AwardWallet when they send an automatic email with new account balances after recent transactions.

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. A service that aggregates all my awards programs AND offers a bonus simply for engaging? During COVID that’s especially helpful to me, as I travel less and might have expiring points.

    John G Goeb Jr says:

    I was very happy to have found and read your article on earning AAdvantage program bonus miles just for commenting on the article here. Given the current situation with Covid-19 and the lack of travel it has created, I was concerned about what I needed to do to keep from having miles expire in that program due to lack of travel.

    I think this article and method could help others as well because I was thinking I may have to buy some miles just to keep my account in good standing. This method allows me to continue to bank my miles and not have to speculate by purchasing miles that I do not have a specific plan to use.

    Is the current sign-up bonus on the AA MileUp card (10,000 miles + $50 credit) worth taking advantage of, or do they sometimes increase the bonus?

    • Avatar
      JT Genter says:

      This is the general offer on this card. I haven’t seen a higher offer – but that doesn’t mean one might not come around later. This isn’t a great sign-up bonus, but it’s not bad for a no-annual-fee card and only a $500 spending requirement.

    Truly love this platform, having signed up for several reward programs with flight, hotel and credit card rewards, offering one location to keep track of them all is an amazing value for me. The most important feature for me is the automated responses I receive from AwardWallet when my points are about to expire. It’s saved me from losing points on several occasions. If that wasn’t enough, AwardWallet even offers this promotion where they’ll issue you miles just by engaging with the community via comments. I’ll be a member for years to come.

I actually just purchased some items from the AA AAdvantage e-shopping for my son’s AAdvantage account for over $100, this is a MUCH better option.

    Its so nice for Awardwallet to provide a fast and convenient way to extend AA mileage. Its also nice for AA to allow Awardwallet to do so. I had over 100k Singapore airline points expired on me , wish they could have had some ways to extend it because apparently when points accumulated, it does not automatically extend the exp. of the old points.

    Award Wallet has saved me several times from allowing AA miles to expire. It’s easy to let AW manage both mine and my wife’s Credit Card, Airline, Hotel, and Bank Loyalty Programs, and is worth the small annual fee because the value of losing points inadvertently (through expiring) far exceeds the annual fee, plus the organization and being able to survey all Loyalty/Award accounts and their value on one web page is immense.

    I’ve been brainstorming ways to prevent my AA miles from expiring in a couple months. I don’t have any travel plans at the moment and didn’t want to open a new credit card (in the middle of buying first home!). I was set on buying something online via the AA shopping portal but my frugal self did not know what to buy. This post allows me to resets the expiration of my AA miles for another 24 months.

    Cannot recommend this enough for those with an AAdvantage account, living outside of America and miles that are due to expire anytime this year. With so many restrictions on travel and even hotel stays, this offer just simply kicks the can down the road, but for 18 months at a time. And in all honesty, there’s nothing to stop you from leaving suitable comments across the AwardWallet blog daily. I know it’s only 1825 miles for the year, but it’s free miles that might make the difference for a booking one day and means that the expiry date is always being pushed back 18 months each time…. Thanks AwardWallet…

  • Avatar

    Exactly what is says on the tin. Opened an AwardWallet account, linked my AAdvantage account and posted a comment on the blog. Waited for approval and then a few days later, I received an email from AA to advise that the points had been added to my account. Nearly 100,000 points extended for another 18 months, thanks to a simple and easy to use process. What’s not to love…

    I’d joined AwardWallet years ago but frankly haven’t used it for a while. My wife recently got notice that her (very few) AA miles would expire soon, so I was looking for a way to extend them via some activity. We don’t plan to fly anywhere for some time due to the pandemic. Heck, even going INSIDE of a restaurant will be very rare for some time.

    The ability to comment on your blog to earn/extend points is slick. It will keep me coming back.

      This is such a strange situation all over the world. How are things in the states?

      Here in my country vaccination is still on early stages, only this week they started with population 65+, having already gone thru 70+, 75+, even older and health professionals.

    I’m a frequent traveler with both United and American, but unlike United miles that never expire, my American miles are set to expire in July.

    This information is very helpful. I have accumulated some AA miles with work travel over the years and looking to redeem on a personal trip and saw that they were expiring soon. I’m new to the whole points/miles thing and have been doing a bit of research on the topic. Came across this blog and a good thing! Keep up the great info.

  • Avatar

    Thanks a lot for this option. I used to be a very frequent flyer to the states for work between 2004 and 2019, and then all hell came down on us. My job was disintegrated by the pandemic, and since I am from outside the US, and from a country with a very beaten up economy, keeping my miles alive was starting to look like too much an investment to fight for them. I hope this comment will work as intended.
    Sadly, I discovered that I cannot link here my accounts for Delta and United mileage programs, but I think those miles wont expire. I will check them out after posting here. Is there any chance that they will be re added to manage them here?

    Is there an option here in this blog to trade miles between users, or to buy or sell them? Or can anyone recommend a website for such purpose?

    Again, thanks, will be coming here often.

    Thank you for this awesome promotion. This is really cool and an awesome way to save American miles from expiring. I’ve been an AwardWallet customer for a few years. Signed up with one of the early promotions for premium for super cheap for a few months/years and it finally expired in the last few months. Even your free product is awesome and plenty good for me (not traveling or churning as much as I used to like most folks haha).

    I will add that I am constantly worried about devaluation now-a-days (looking at you Southwest!). With the recent Alaska improvements/changes I suspect something will be coming soon.

    Not going to lie – this is the whole reason I signed up to AwardWallet – great way to to extend the life of my AAdvantage points, as otherwise they’d be expiring this summer, with no forseeable way to actively use my existing airmiles, as there’s no way to fly or even really book a hotel at this point where I live.

Not putting too much faith in that one post – was just wondering if anyone else has seen/heard similar.

    Thank you for this useful information! I appreciate you keeping track of the expiration miles. I also think that the airlines should postpone any miles from ever expiring. I get that it’s a business, but I think as a rewards / loyalty system goes, it is a natural habit for customers to continue building up their reward with loyal albeit infrequent purchases. I believe that the model should be “the more you buy, the quicker your reward is realized”. With covid and people being afraid to travel the airlines should pause the miles expiration and see that their loyal base returns when the pandemic is “handled”. Either way, thank you for this blog.

    Great option. Also a good option to prevent points from expiring: https://awardwallet.com/blog/aadvantage-dining-review/

    Joining/using the dining program allows you to not only keep your points from expiring, but also earn more points for food you’d already buy. I especially like AwardWallet’s suggestion to just sign up for the dining program on all of your cards, forget about it, and done out where you please.

    Obviously it has not been possible to travel over the last 12 months and it is useful to be reminded of the expiry of the miles. Hopefully this works as advertised, is a convenient way to solve the issue and I will soon be back flying with AA.

    This is really helpful. I also love AwardWallet. I wouldn’t have known that my points were going to expire without its helpful email. Based on the point valuation of 1 AAdvantage point = 1.4 cents then it looks like the Bask account returns 1.4% annually on your money which is way better than most high yield savings accounts right now!

    I have been unable to fly for business due to a restriction on travel related to the pandemic – only absolutely necessary travel was allowed. I carried that over to personal travel for health reasons. Having had the first vaccine and close to getting my second shot, I very much look forward to getting back into the air soon. I want to thank American Airlines for graciously pushing back travel award expirations as we all made our way through the thick of the pandemic. This post further shows how the company has worked with customers. I hope we can all get back to normality in our air travel very soon. Plus, I look forward to getting back on AA for business and leisure travel within the next month or two. Thank you!

    It has become a lot more difficult for UK and EU citizens to renew Airmiles with the closure of the AA-linked credit cards in the region. The AA online shop is also unavailable.

    It would be really helpful if country/area specific ways of keeping accounts active could be published, especially right now because we can’t legally travel anywhere anyway and therefore have no realistic means of renewing miles by booking flights.

    Just checked my AAdvantage account and my 5 points for comment here are ther! Got 18 more months to use my miles. Thank you AwardWallet!

  • Avatar

    Is there any update on earning miles/points for commenting in other programs? While most have airlines have stopped expiring miles (JetBlue, Delta among others) there are some that do + hotel programs that expire points. It would be nice to earn say 5 Hilton points for commenting to keep those alive as well. Thanks

  • Avatar

    This is such a great thing! Not only can I earn some miles (and keep mine from expiring), I will also get some insight into other things.

    This COVID pandemic has definitely upended travel. I am happy that AwardWallet provides this service. A good deed that goes a long way to help alleviate some stress and anxiety brought about by this pandemic.

    I am looking forward to flying again soon!!! Thank you

    I’m excited for this opportunity. It keeps me engaged in the idea of traveling. Provides great tips and tricks. And, it can prevent my miles from expiring during a pandemic when I’m not scheduling any flights. Keeps the dream alive for a real vacation when this nightmare ends. Looking for our next family vacation to be out west: Tetons, Yellowstone and Glacier hoping for hotsprings, geysers, bbq and maybe just maybe the Northern Lights.

    I’m excited again for traveling once things in a few months. I appreciate the flexibility that I’ve gotten with dealing with the airline. Between many tough issues in 2020 its nice to know that my flight credit is still available to use when things return to a “new” normal. I look forward to seeing friends and family again in different parts of the nation.

    My miles are set to expire the first week of July. I traveled last on December 2019. Do I get an extension or is this program only for miles that expire before July 1st?

    I don’t know about you, but I have multiple airline mileage programs and points here and there with different expiration dates. I have found AwardWallet to be super helpful for keeping track of my mileage programs all in one place – I only need to log in to one site to manage everything. I’ve shared this website with my elderly parents who are forgetful and not so tech savvy, and they have linked all their accounts through AwardWallet as a one stop shop. Thank you!

AA has been our sole Airline mile for the past 15 years but since Covid, we haven’t flown and worry about loosing our miles. We love AA and have found the upgrades on the web for reserving to be very welcome. We started out when one had to call and make the reservation and now they charge to do it that way!
    Any more detailed explanation of where the blogs are located would be appreciated.

      Hi Bhikhu Shah,
      Please note that it takes up to 5 business days to get the miles if your comment does get approved and we also have a limit of 5 miles per day. Also, please note that we have a combination of automated and manual approvals in place for commenting on our blog. In a nutshell, we don’t want people gaming the system (I am also not saying that you tried gaming the system either), we are simply looking for more meaningful comments where people share their personal experiences or opinions related to the post. Typically, comments like “Thanks for the heads up”, “Great deal”, “Cool” go to spam automatically (not always though as we tweak the system) because they clutter the discussion without adding value. As I see, your first comment has been already approved.

    All my travel in 2020 was cancelled so I was at risk of losing my AA points due to the 18 month expiration policy. These 5 pts are a wonderful way to keep my points until I can travel on AA again.

    After being an AAdvantage member for over 30 years, I just learned of this blog. Wish I learned of it sooner as it contains some great information. In case you haven’t read it, there’s an informative article on How to Get Elite Hotel Status for (almost) Free. It covers the hotels most business people including me travel stay during travel: Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and Radisson.

    I have always found your site to be among the most informative when it comes to maximizing value for travel. Thank you for providing this easy way to preserve our miles. It’s a much better alternative to ordering a magazine subscription. Here’s to resuming travel adventures in the new year!

    Thanks so much for offering this! I’ve been having a hard time figuring out when miles expire, and it looks like Mags for Miles doesn’t exist any more for AAdvantage, so this is very very helpful.

    Although this is a common practice within this blog since at least two years, in current context, this adds a lot of value for those customers that do not earn miles through purchases made with an affiliated credit card.

    Just a tip; if not planning to use miles anytimes soon and are not that much, please consider donating them to charity!

    I have to say I have already know about this for some time like a year , but I am not sure but Awardwallet is probably the only website on the internet that gives you miles to comment on post and that is cool.

    AA should definitely have a total rethink of its mileage expiration policy in response to the unprecedented situation.

    Good way to keep miles valid and also to earn some spare miles.

    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.

    Thanks!!!

    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.

    Your blogs are very interesting and this is the easiest way to keep my American airline miles from expiring.

    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.

    This is a really helpful tip from Award Wallet as this has prevented my miles from expiring.

    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.

    This idea of leaving comments to AA and the public when reading blogs and earning miles makes lots of sense. It’s a win/win for both sides of the conversation. Hopefully AA doesn’t attempt to edit negative comments that are a true picture of an issue

    Nice of AA to postpone mileage expiration but I wish they would allow carry over of the miles accumulated in 2020 to 2021 like other airlines, not just Oct-Dec.

    I am so grateful for ya’ll doing this! It has saved me several times. Even when I noticed I maybe haven’t gotten anything all of the backed ones pop in. I cannot believe you read all of them. Sometimes I see quite a few. I usually keep this for mine and my husband’s accounts since the other two are my kids accounts and since they are under 18 American supposedly they don’t have an expiration date. I hope this is true, I read it but who truly knows with American.

    Great idea! I’d like to see if you can extend it to other programs. United and Delta don’t expire, but I have 127k Avianca miles expiring in January unless I book something or extend them by transferring from AMEX.

    This is a great way of extending AA miles – particularly for those of us who have not flown this year or purchased miles until needed. I have used it a few times. Thank you! 👍 Happy New Year 2021 to all – a better year in every way.

    I think this is great, but how long does it take for the 5 AAdvantge miles to post? I had a comment accepted 12/21, or 10 days ago, and nothing yet.

  • 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.

    Thought my miles were expiring, so I’m grateful for this information. While I’m glad for the extension, i feel it would be more realistic to extend them until a little later in the year, when more people will be able to get vaccinated.

  • Avatar

    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!

    • Avatar

      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. I had to postpone a trip this year with the COVID situation being what it is, and next year is looking iffy too. But hopefully we’ll be able to return to the air sometime soon (fingers crossed)!
