    Promotional Terms and Conditions
    * You must opt in on this page in order to earn the 500 or 1,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles. This is a one-time bonus awarded based on cumulative amount spent with participating online AAdvantage eShoppingSM retailers between 11/10/2011 and 12/31/2011. You will be awarded one time based on the highest online spend threshold you qualify for: 500 AAdvantage® bonus miles for spending between $500 and $999.99, and 1,000 AAdvantage bonus miles for spending $1,000 or more. Your AAdvantage eShoppingSM account must be open and set to receive special offer emails at the time of the awarding of AAdvantage® bonus miles in order to receive the spend bonus. AAdvantage® bonus miles will be posted by AAdvantage eShoppingSM to the member's AAdvantage® account within 8 to 10 weeks after 12/31/2011.
    The double mile offer is only valid with select online merchants. Qualifying AAdvantage eShoppingSM purchases will accrue AAdvantage® miles per the terms and conditions set by each particular merchant. Members should read each mileage offer carefully as certain exclusions may apply. AAdvantage miles are awarded as reported by the applicable merchant ("Merchant") to American Airlines or Cartera Commerce, and certain exclusions may apply. Online purchase awards only valid when you make a qualifying purchase via a valid link on www.aadvantageeshopping.com.
    Please read our full terms and conditions carefully before shopping. Please refrain from the use of any promotional code or coupon not listed on the AAdvantage eShoppingSM site as it will negate the indicated reward. Orders placed through another loyalty program or search engine are not eligible for reward.

Any such changes may affect your ability to use the awards or mileage credits that you have accumulated.

    Indeed.

    Granted, you could do some damage with some of their retailers and get quite a few miles for $1k spend, but I'd rather have seem them offer some kind of multiplier for every purchase rather than a preset 500/1k miles.

    I have had to fight for every single bonus with Cartera Commerce which seems to be running the shopping mall for AA, UA and DL. You will have to wait 4-6 months after the promo ends and you might see the miles. Don't bother shifting your spending to the AA mall unless the usual earning rate is the best you can find.

    The AA e-shopping mall is a mess I'll never understand. You basically buy something through it, wait a few weeks for it in "PENDING" state, then they eventually post, then later -- sometimes much later -- stuff actually posts to your AA account.

    I had a purchase from 7/26 that posted at the end of September. I guess they stretch that "6-8 weeks" to the max. :)

    If I interpret the T & C's correctly, the number of qualifying merchants is tremendously small. I ain't jumpin' thru hopps for this one.

    While it's not a great promo (and I won't partake), there are two clear parts. The 500/1000 is described multiple times as for any online merchant - the double miles are for selected merchants.

    What a yawner of a promo!

    If they post at all. I've had at least one purchase never post.
    Filed an investigation request and never heard so much of a peep back from them! :rolleyes:
