    Hi there

    I m trying to buy miles on American Airlines for 3 award business class seats. Unfortunately I have to wait 14 days before I can buy miles... I have to do it via 3 accounts as the limit is 100000 per calendar year...

    Can anyone assist me as to how I can go about doing this? Don't want to lose the opportunity of the award seats that are available..

    Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated..

    Kind Regards

    You can hold awards for 5 days, so hold the space 5 days prior to buying the miles.

    The 10% off offer will expire on February 9th: http://onemileatatime.boardingarea....les-promo-30000-bonus-miles-plus-10-discount/

    If you are a US based with good credit, you can apply & get 3 credit cards for 150K plus the spend:

    50K Citi Executive AAdvantage
    50K Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage World MasterCard
    50K Barclays US Airways Premier World MasterCard

    AA and US are merging as soon as the second quarter of this year.
