American Airlines has announced a promotion where you can earn double miles in First, Business, and Premium Economy through January 8, 2019. The promotion is targeted and restricted to certain fare classes, so you will have to log in to your AA account to see if you have been chosen.
- You need to register by October 8, 2018, 11:59 pm CDT
- Promotion is valid from the date of registration through January 8, 2019
- Earn double award miles on First class (F or A fares), Business class (J, R, D or I fares), Premium Economy (W or P fares)
- Earn double base miles on qualifying AA flights
- Promotion applies on AA marketed flights operated by American, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia or Japan Airlines
- Bonus miles do not count towards Elite status or Million Miler status
Targeted Promotion & Earning
There is no direct link to the promotion, and it is not open to every AAdvantage account holder. You will have to log into your AA account to see if you have been selected for the promotion.
Remember with this promotion you will be earning Double Base miles, which is the number of miles awarded to a basic AAdvantage member or 5 points per dollar spent on the base fare and carrier-imposed fees. With this promotion, you would be effectively earning 10 points per dollar spent (plus any bonuses you may receive as an elite member).
If you regularly fly American or one of its participating Oneworld partners, then you want to take this promotion into account for your upcoming reservations. On the other hand, switching alliances or airlines for a couple of months just to effectively earn 5 extra miles per dollars is ultimately not worth the effort. Especially when you consider that the bonus miles do not even count towards Elite qualification.
