If You’re Traveling Again, Don’t Forget to Pick up an Extra 2,000 American Miles

The shopping portal for American Airlines AAdvantage is offering a ‘Back to…’ special offer. Between now and August 15th, 2021, you can earn:

  • 500 bonus miles for spending $150
  • 1,000 bonus miles for spending $300
  • 2,000 bonus miles for spending $500

How to Easily Meet the Spend Targets

The easiest way to meet high spending targets is to book a hotel stay or two via the shopping portal. You can book Marriott, IHG, Radisson, Choice, Best Western, etc. though the AA shopping portal.  The bonus miles you can earn from promotions such as these can be more valuable than your standard cashback options.

The question comes up occasionally, so I’ll be as clear as possible. When you use a cashback website or airline shopping portal to click through to a hotel chain website, you are definitely booking DIRECT and qualifying to earn points, elite status credit, etc.

And, naturally, you don’t have to actually stay at the hotel during the period of the bonus mile promotion. What matters is the date of making the reservation…
