Get 2500 Miles Off Your Next American Airlines Award Ticket

By  | 

I received the email from American Airlines yesterday offering a chance to win 25,000 AAdvantage miles for checking out their new award map.

I did, and based on my brief scan it actually looks pretty user friendly. You can see if your destinations around the world are even possible through American or their partners (based on whatever availability is loaded on their website). And then it lets you go ahead and start looking at available flights from there.

For example, I chose beach as my destination for late September and indicated I had 75,000 points. It showed me options for the continental US as well as Hawaii and South American destinations. Rather cool.

I think it will probably be most useful for folks with an idea in mind of what they want to do or a region they want to go during a certain time period, but no particular destinations.

So then I clicked back to enter for the daily drawing for 25,000 points. I didn’t win that, but I did get an offer of 2,500 miles off my next American Airlines award ticket booked through the map!

It’s a restricted offer “*You must book your flight between 6/26/13 and 7/24/13, and travel between 9/4/13 and 11/20/13. Please allow 6-8 weeks for the 2,500 miles to be credited back to your account” but if you were already planning to book an award ticket, not too shabby. An economy off-peak, one-way ticket within the US would only wind up being 10,000 miles! (Although you will need to have 12.5K in your account since it’s a rebate rather than upfront discount.)
