    Am I the only person concerned about soon-to-come mileage devaluations from the "new AA" with hundreds of miles being given away for playing online games?

    Is this open only to U.S. Residents and not to residents of other countries?

    It's pretty pathetic. Buying goodwill metrics with miles is not a classy move, and suggests desperation. It also suggests that AA is up to no good in the very near future, as @Newscience commented earlier.
    Let's not give them any freddie awards ahead of their devaluation decision.

    whether it's classy or desperate or not, I spent about 15 minutes for 1000 or so miles, but more importantly I think I get to multiply that a bit w/ upcoming domestic and international flights on AA during that specified time window... Although not exactly sure what it will bring in.

    I don't think this game alone necessarily means devaluations.

    For a few years, USAirways had an awesome yearly "Grand Slam" promotion which ran until last year.

    It was a game of sorts, and for each partner activity completed meant bonus miles after completing x number of activities. Granted with the Grand Slam, one had to purchase something, but the miles bonuses were MUCH MUCH higher than the freebie miles given out with this AA promotion.

    USAirways never had massive devalutions during the years that they ran the Grand Slam promo. That's not to say a devalution isn't coming with AA, but since they've held out thus far, I don't think they immediately want to piss off customers and leave a bad taste in their mouth about the "new" American.

    Could a devalution happen? Sure.

    But AA has been smart not to implement a devalution so far when UA and DL have done so. That alone will drive some [many?] UA and DL customers to AA.

    Thus AA would be shooting themselves in the foot if they immediately did a devaluation. It may happen in time, but it would be against AA's best interests to do one anytime soon.

    EQP goal posted on mine. Very doable with already booked travel.

    On US residency. Depends on how they define US.. US on facebook? US on your aadvantage profile? Or US on your US Airways Dividend Miles profile? My guess is US on your advantage profile. Maybe if you move back to the US you can still qualify.

    For promos like this that require sharing my Facebook friends list, etc, with a business, I use a secondary Facebook account I created on which I have no friends. That way I get the miles, cash back or whatever benefit is being offered and I don't have to spam my friends.

    I took one look at the game and passed. There are like 15 different things to do for a few hundred points each. For the number of points it doesn't seem worth the effort - unless maybe you have flights coming up and are able to get the bonus credit for those.

    Items like the little games and quizzes might take a minute, tops. The video was the longest (in terms of time) task.

    Yes, that is a great idea, and perhaps the best way to handle such promos! ;)

    Choose 'custom' and change it to "Only Me." Then no one will see the posts but you. :D
