Earn Double miles with AA

Key Terms

  • 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).

Our Take

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.

Comments

  • I have a booking for a Iberia flight in J… but it has an IB code. Does it count?

  • BA’s promotion is potentially much better… Earns double avios on BA and several partners (including AA) and includes vanilla Economy class. (unless you don’t use avios at all)

  • Ack I was going to fly American but someone came out cheaper. Oh well. Maybe next time. I did get this email but dismissed it once I read the rules. I’m waiting for the shopping portals to get the good bonuses.

  • Some small peanuts for a very small AA clientele base. I guess at least one or two people at AA thought this was a great idea.

  • I think they offer this fairly regularly. I signed up for the last promotion like this but never found a premium price that I could justify when compared to the main cabin price. I regularly find domestic business class fares on United and Delta that are just a bit more than the coach fare but more rarely on American. I’ll sign up of course, but probably won’t take advantage of the offer.

  • Very weak as not every AA flights have Premium Economy

  • A promo I could actually use, and am not targeted. Figures.

  • It would be much more interesting if the double miles counted towards elite qualification. I think Qantas sometimes offers something like that for their own flights in the their program.

  • I actually like this bonus. I’d like to see it more often.
