    EXPIRED

    Please visit the sticky at the top of the forum for links and discussion on previous deals.

    Register for the promo here.

    Twitter followers of the AAdvantage® program have access to exclusive mileage offers. Register your AAdvantage number below, click "Tweet Now" to post a tweet containing "#Deal30" and be sure to follow AAdvantage on Twitter by May 3, 2011. We’ll pick 30 of our followers with this post to win 30,000 miles!

    Terms and Conditions are lengthy and too cumbersome to post. They are available through the link above under the "Your AAdvantage Number" box.

    For those who are do not currently use Twitter and need some assistance, here is a good guide by a MP member explaining what it is and how to use it.

    Promo basics....

    • Must tweet between 12:01 AM CDT on 4/21 and 11:59 PM CDT on 4/27.
    • Registration through the link is required.
    • You must follow the AAdvantage handle on Twitter.
    • Must use the hashtag "#Deal30"
    • The tweet must be about American Airlines, the 30 Deals promo, or the AAdvantage program.
    • 1 entry per person, so multiple tweets technically do not increase chances.
    • Approximate Retail Value (ARV) is $599
    • Winner responsible for taxes.
    • Winners announced around May 1 by phone or certified mail.
    • Must be a resident of the 50 US States, Washington DC, or Puerto Rico and be 18 years of age.

    Now here's a 'promo' to complain about. Raise the drawbridge! Lower the portcullis! Man the bastions. Or something. Now where's the "Bugger I'm Drunk" thread on MP....

    Completely baffled by the fact that the Terms and Conditions state a winner will be announced on or around May 1st, yet the blurb on the landing page states you have to follow AAdvantage's twitter account by May 3rd......:confused:

    I think you can create on in the Community forum.... ;)

    Well this one isn't too terrible. Prize is decent and - so far - your odds are 1 in 300 based on the current number of AA twitter followers.

    i disagree, i think this promo is the worst of them so far. they are basically bribing me to spam my twitter followers with a sweepstakes. no thanks. not upset about the promo, just not for me.

    Well I was referring to the prize, not the process by which you get it, but I see your point. :)

    11,669 people following AAdvantage.
    30 people are going to win 30,000 miles.
    1:389 seem like ok odds to me.

    It was 1:300 just this morning. My guess is by the deadline on 4/27 it will be 1:60,000,000 :)

    I believe there are tax/legal issues that go along with running a promotion across multiple countries. While the winner in the US pays the taxes, in Canada (for example) I believe the giver (AA) would be required to pay the tax. It's probably easier for AA to limit the promotions that would be difficult to those areas that use US law.
