Everyone loves free miles, and here’s a great chance to get some!
Through Super Bowl Sunday AAdvantage Shopping is offering a football themed promotion for their shopping portal. This is a perfect way to earn some extra miles for purchases you were planning to make anyway. Here are the details:
Whether you watch the Big Game for the action or just for the ads, we’ve designed 3 key plays so you can earn up to 1,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles.
Play #1: First Down
You can earn 100 bonus miles with a first down. Simply register at the AAdvantage eShoppingSM mall to complete this play.
Play #2: Kick a Field Goal

Play #3: TOUCHDOWN!
Win MVP with an additional purchase of $100 or more and score another 600 bonus miles! Get in the game now and earn a total of 1,000 bonus miles!
Offer ends February 3, 2013.
Personally I like the creativity behind the football theme, though part of me is very bothered that a touchdown gets you 6 points (600 miles), a field goal gets you 3 points (300 miles) and a first down gets you one point (100 miles). Maybe they should start awarding one point for every first down, it would certainly change the dynamic of the game!
But however they’re given out, it’s 1,000 free miles if you can sign up for and make a $100 purchase on the AAdvantage shopping portal, or 400 miles if you sign up and make any purchase ($1 would work).
It’s not much, but every little bit helps when you’re looking to travel classy for pennies! This could also come in handy if you needed to generate an AAdvantage mile to keep your miles active.
