Expiration Date – May 31, 2016

By: Liza Weeks

Are the winter blues catching up to you? How about a trip to the Southern Hemisphere to warm up a little? American Airlines has a great deal for AAdvantage members looking to travel to Australia before the end of May.

Every nonstop, round-trip ticket from the US and Canada to Australia on American Airlines-marketed flights through May 31, 2016, can earn bonus miles based on the fare class purchased:  

Bonus miles can only be earned on a maximum of three round-trips.

At trvlvip we value American Airlines bonus miles at 2 cents per mile. Therefore, the maximum 90,000 miles you can earn with this promotion (by flying three round-trip, First or Business class fares) is worth $1,800! And if you fly Economy you can earn miles worth up to $900!

This is an excellent way for AAdvantage members to take a vacation to sunny Down Under and to earn lots of miles toward your next vacation!

Strings attached? Sure there are. Here are the important ones:

This offer includes First and Business class fares booked in F, R, P, J, R, D or I; Premium Economy fares booked in W (operated by Qantas); full-fare Economy fares booked in Y, B or H; and Economy class fares booked in K, L, M, W, V, G, Q, N, O and S.

Registration prior to travel is required, be sure to use promotional code AUS16.

Half of the bonus miles will be posted to your account after each segment flown, so don’t sweat it if you arrive in Australia and only see half your expected miles added to your account. Just relax, soak up the sun and check your account when you get home to make sure the full amount of miles are credited!  

The Wrap-Up:

Word is, autumn (March through May) is the best time to visit Australia, as it is still warm but not too hot, and it’s even better now that you can earn up to 90,000 bonus miles for you flight!
