    The AA bonus had been 7,500 miles but I received an email that the bonus is up to 10,000 through 31 May 2011. This is for new DIRECTV customers and requires a 2-year service agreement. T&Cs note to allow 6-8 weeks for first 7.5K miles and additional 3 weeks for the final 2.5K.

    Link from the email: http://aa.directv.com

    I see that, as of the time I"m writing this, the AA.com info for DIRECTV still states "7,500" but the link, which is same as the one above, takes you to the same DIRECTV landing page which states 10,000.

    As I'm fed up with DISH and my local cable option (Time Warner), I'd already planned to switch to Directv.

    I got this offer back in 2009 and signed up in August of the same year. Got my 10K AA miles and already burned them ... been stuck with the over-priced DirecTV since then. Now having the $29++ family package (the cheapest) because my kid loves the cartoons, and the wife the food channel, but no CNN, FOX, or Travel Channel :( Cant's wait till August to cancel, otherwise $20/month cancellation fee for every month the Agreement is in force.

    Free DirecTV service over time is a better deal than 10,000 free miles!

    Agreed, but would I be a true mile collector if I didn't at least wish I could figure out a way to get them? ;)

    This software is nuts. It should be *officially* fixed now!
