I was emailed this morning regarding a great offer to buy American Airlines miles for 1.8¢. I’m racking my brain trying to think of a deal whereby miles could be purchased for much less and it doesn’t really get much better. What does this mean? If you’re looking at using American Airlines miles in the near future for a redemption and are short – this could be an opportune time. I never recommend buying miles speculatively, but if you’re actively planning a trip, then this could be a great time to pick up some miles on sale.
The maximum purchase is 150k + 115k bonus = 265k
That will set you back roughly $4800 or 1.8¢
If you haven’t read it, and are questioning this premise it’s worth a look. I’d say that buying American Miles at $0.018 is a good opportunity for a point purchase to truly make sense. Either shore up your account, or see the outright space and purchase the entire load of points you need for that redemption. Let’s take a look at few of those instances below.
You can use miles to fly on American’s fantastic reverse herringbone products.
Like I did on the 777-200 from LHR to ORD – only 57,500 miles or $1035
