    LINK.

    Just provide your email address, watch the interesting video presentation (or skip it), and then AA will ask you questions to update their information and better target their marketing toward you for "free" miles. A chance to win one of four vacations: a Colorado ski trip, Caribbean cruise, Hawaiian vacation, or a Sandals Caribbean resort stay.

    Update: Upon further reflection it seems that I might have earned more if I had unsubscribed from all AA emails before clicking through to be "appraised". Perhaps someone can try it and see if they earn more miles?

    1000 miles for me. :)

    Terms & Conditions:

    NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 years or older.

    I checked and was already unsubscribed from all AA emails, so met with the appraiser and got 3,000 miles within minutes.

    Being unsubscribed is the key IMHO. You are offered a chance to subscribe to emails for 500 miles each. If you are already subscribed to some I believe they won't show you the option to sign up for those particular ones, therefore you miss out on 500 miles for each one.

    ETA: I was targeted and used the link in the email.

    The T&C do mention that you have to receive the email or be targeted. Perhaps you weren't targeted? Seems everyone else so far has been able to use the link though. Odd. Sorry! :(

    1000. Should have looked here first.... after a while I will unsubscribe from most and wait for the next offer. I can't complain though, I received 500 miles each for signing up for the other newsletters a couple of years ago.

    1000 miles here - I wonder if the system looks at your existing e-mail subscriptions (or lack of subscriptions) BEFORE the invitation is sent, or if the system checks just before one clicks on the entry link?

    They must have fixed the 'unsubscribe then play' bug, it is remembering my preferences from 30 minutes prior.

    Also of note:
    "Approximate retail value of Gift is $49.75 for each 500 AAdvantage® bonus miles."

    Holy write-off AA!

    Thanks for a quick, and hopefully, painless (aka spam) 6000 AA miles.
    Good find. Wife and I usually get emails from AA shopping but nothing else.
    We both went through this one quickly and easily. Even the short video was
    worth watching twice. -- Sorta

    Just got 1000. I unsubscribed from everything before I went, but it still recognized my account as previously being subscribed (or I didnt wait long enough).
