    No sure if it works for AA, but for UA one used to be able to reactivate an account by finding an old car rental or hotel stay that wasn't posted to anything and have them post that to the Mileage Plus account with the original transaction date.

    I recently did a reengagement challenge with AA to get back ~30k miles that had gone stale years ago. Called them up on the regular customer service line and asked for it, the terms I got were pretty simple: fly one round-trip on AA metal and I'd get my miles back. Cake, since I was flying on them anyway.

    This seems very expensive for 9000 miles. I would consider them a lost cause and start earning new miles using aadvantage e shop.

    In the future it makes sense to add reminders o outlook to shop and earn miles to keep them alive

    The AA re-engagement challenge has been discussed in several threads already. It's really simple and can be done with a flight or credit card spend.

    And it's a lot cheaper than giving them $200. :)

    Back in 2009 I reactivated AA miles by signing up for one of the Citi/AA cards. It's a win-win, reactivate your miles and get the bonus miles for a card you should be signing up for anyway. ;) Might be worth contacting AA to see if this still works. If you do this, don't forget to find the most lucrative signup bonus (e.g. not the one on AA's or Citibank's websites).
