Celebrating the merger of the American Airlines and US Airways vacation programs, American is offering up to $300 off vacation packages and an extra bonus of 2,500 miles (10 times the normal amount) for those who book on! Packages must be booked by August 4, 2015, for travel through May 29, 2016. The new combined program provides vacation packages to nearly 1,000 destinations.

And as an added sweetener, you have a chance to win a $10,000 American Airlines vacation package by entering the Better Together sweepstakes! So ahead and enter, you have nothing to lose except your unused vacation days!

To enjoy the savings you must book your vacation on or by calling 1-800-321-2121 using special promo code CELEBRATE to save $38 per day for international and Hawaii vacation packages and promo code TOGETHER to save $20 per day for domestic vacation packages.

Strings attached to qualify for this promotion? Sure there are. Here are the important ones:

  • All flights must be roundtrip

  • The hotel stay must match the arrival and departures dates of the flights

  • Blackout dates are September 7, November 26, December 25, December 31, 2015, and March 27, 2016

  • AAdvantage miles may not be used as a form of payment

  • Fares are for roundtrip off-peak main cabin travel

  • Baggage fees will apply if the traveler doesn’t qualify for an elite status waiver

The Wrap-Up:

We’re hot and cold on vacation packages. While you can certainly save money if all of the ducks align within the stated parameters, you often give up some flexibility.

If you are interested in a vacation package and are having any trouble finding what you want online, we suggest you call American at 1-800-321-2121 to confirm availability and prices. If all works out to your liking, go ahead and book the package on so you will enjoy the 2,500 bonus miles.

But before doing any of that check the flight prices for your preferred destination. Then check the special packages and rates at your preferred hotel.

We value American Airlines miles at 2 cents per mile so 2,500 miles is worth about $50. If you can save more than $50 plus the $20-$38 daily savings from American Airlines Vacations, we suggest you book your own trip. With all of the recent hotel deals highlighted on TRVLVIP, it may not be too challenging to beat this deal!

Whether you book your wonderful trip using American Airlines Vacations or enjoy one of the airline or hotel deals highlighted on TRVLVIP, we’d love a nice note on Facebook and Twitter!
