Expiration Date – June 1, 2016
By: Liza Weeks
American Airlines is celebrating the 35th Anniversary of their AAdvantage program by helping you celebrate an important milestone in your own life - and they came up with two incredible offers!
35 lucky travelers will win 350,000 bonus miles to put toward their next milestone trip, and every participant has the opportunity to earn an additional 700 bonus miles!
To be entered in the 350,000-mile sweepstakes you must be a member of the AAdvantage program (don’t worry if you aren’t, it’s free to join) and registered for this promotion by June 1, 2016. No purchase is necessary! You may enter up to two times, but each individual may only earn one prize.
A random drawing from all eligible entries will be made around June 13 and the winners will be notified via email by June 20. Only 35 people will earn this mega mileage bonus, but all participants can earn up to 700 bonus miles!
On the same registration page, underneath the sweepstakes registration is a quick survey. If you include in the boxes what your next milestone trip is for and when you are planning it, you will automatically earn 350 bonus miles! After that you have another opportunity to earn an additional 350 miles, in one of three ways:
Following the prompts on the next page after registering for the promotion, upload to your FaceBook page a photo or share story of a milestone trip you have taken or are planning to take. Be sure to include both hashtags #MilesForMilestones and #Promotion.
Tweet a story of a milestone trip you have taken or plan to take. Make sure to include both hashtags #MilesForMilestones and #Promotion. After posting, @AmericanAir will respond to your tweet with a link to claim your miles.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a story and/or photos from a milestone trip you have taken or are planning.
You only need to use one of these methods to get the additional bonus miles. You may use more but you cannot earn more than 350 additional bonus miles. It will take up to eight weeks for your 350 - 700 bonus miles to be credited to your account.
At trvlvip we value AAdvantage points at 2 cents per mile, which is the minimum value we feel you should expect before redeeming your miles. So the grand prize of 350,000 miles is worth $7,000! And the 700 additional bonus points available to anyone registered are worth $14!
Strings attached? Sure there are. Here are the important ones:
You must be 18 years or older and a legal resident of the United States currently living in the 50 states or the District of Columbia (participants in Alabama and Nebraska must be at least 19 years old)
Employees of companies affiliated with this promotion and any member of their family or household are not eligible
Miles earned through this promotion do not count toward Elite-status qualification
Miles earned may not be transferred, sold or assigned
Stories submitted must be the original work of the entrant and cannot include any personal information about any person but the entrant, including name, likeness and image
Fees, taxes and service charges apply
American is celebrating a milestone anniversary by helping you celebrate your next milestone, whether it be a birthday, wedding or reunion! As of now, the largest number of participants who provided feedback said their next milestone is an anniversary - how appropriate for this promotion!
But regardless of what you are celebrating, go ahead and register! It’s free and the 35 grand prize offerings are an incredible gift!
