    Through August 31, 2014, American is offering tiered discounts on the purchase of AAdvantage miles, up to 25%. You can purchase a maximum of 80,000 AAdvantage miles per calendar year (not including promotional bonus miles), though if you purchase anywhere between 65,000 and 80,000 miles you'd be achieving the cheapest cent per mile cost, given that you'd be eligible for the 25% discount. The ordinary cost to purchase American miles is 2.95 cents each, plus the 7.5% federal excise tax, plus a $35 transaction fee. In this case if you were to purchase 80,000 miles you'd pay a total of $1,808.75, which comes out to ~2.26 cents per mile.
