Earn 500 Bonus AAdvantage Miles by Shopping for Valentine’s Day 2018

Effective through Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time, you can earn 500 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles — in addition to the standard AAdvantage miles earned — when you spend a minimum of $200.00 shopping during the Valentine’s Day Bonus campaign at the AAdvantage Shopping portal by spending the following minimum amounts of money for shopping for qualifying purchases on your favorite products from hundreds of participating retailers.

Earn 500 Bonus AAdvantage Miles by Shopping for Valentine’s Day 2018

You can only earn the bonus of 500 AAdvantage miles once, as the maximum number of bonus award points that will be awarded to an eligible AAdvantage Shopping account through the Valentine’s Day Bonus campaign is 500 bonus award miles.

Bonus AAdvantage miles will be issued based on your cumulative qualifying purchases made during the bonus period. Returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products are not included in the bonus award AAdvantage miles eligibility calculation.

Please allow up to ten weeks after the conclusion of the bonus period for the bonus award AAdvantage miles to post to your AAdvantage Shopping account. This offer cannot be combined with other offers or promotions.

Other terms and conditions may apply.


The offer for this year has devalued, as during a similar promotion last year, you could have earned up to 1,000 bonus AAdvantage miles when you spent a minimum of $250.00 shopping.

Be aware that the adding of AAdvantage miles to your account as a result of participating in this promotion can take as many as ten weeks; but if that happens after the expiration date of the miles in your account, take consolation of knowing that the date of the transaction is typically what counts and not when the transaction is approved. You may need to take the time to send reminders to the administrators of a shopping portal if your miles or points do not post; and if that is not worth your time or effort, you might want to reconsider participating in one of these promotions…

…but if you intend to spend money shopping anyway before the promotion ends, you may as well earn AAdvantage miles in the process.

    Ahahahaha, well balls.

    As a followup to your rental mileage thread: I just booked a rental car through the AAdvantage Mall yesterday (1/28) via Sixt. (Which is doing 4mi/$ btw).

    Would’ve been a free 500 miles! Ah well.

      This offer literally just became effective a few hours ago, Ryan Bruce — but it seems to come out every year at this time; so if you find yourself in a similar situation next year, hold out just one more day if you can…
