Through May 23, 2014 and effective immediately, participate in the American Airlines AAdvantage Passport Challenge by earning a “stamp in your passport” — as well as American AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles — each time you “complete a quick and fun game.”
You can participate in this promotion anywhere. Here is all you need to do:

  • Play trivia and other games to earn up to 700 American AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles
  • Share and complete social actions to earn up to 350 American AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles
  • Fly our expanded network to earn greater than 9,000 American AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles

 
However, one drawback is that you must participate on Facebook — which may be considered a drawback if you are not a member of Facebook.
“Not everyone is in Facebook, not to bring the case as to why here, but I resent having to go through it to get to another company”, lamented FlyerTalk member Firewind. “One could look at this, if one isn’t in Facebook, as being offered a few hundred miles to join Facebook. American doesn’t need Facebook in this way, even to look ‘with it’.”
Responding to Firewind, FlyerTalk member jerry305 offers a supposedly proven — yet simple — workaround: “I always use a secondary Facebook account that doesn’t connect to my ‘real’ Facebook account. I can earn the promo points without bothering any of my friends.”
Besides, FlyerTalk members have been benefiting from this challenge, as they post reports of how many American AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles they have already earned.
“So far I have 385 points for today…”, posted FlyerTalk member kevindavis338. “It sure beats e-rewards..”
The American Airlines AAdvantage Passport Challenge is open to legal residents of the fifty United States and Washington, D.C. who are members of the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program in good standing at the time of participation. Other terms, conditions and rules — including more specific information on how exactly you can earn those American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles — apply.

    I certainly understand the disappointment of realizing we must SPAM our friends to take full advantage of the offer. Frankly, I draw the line at SPAMming my friends and won’t get all of the points available. However, it is far more despicable to feel entitled to the miles, without providing the value. AA is offering you miles to engage and more miles to SPAM your friends. Figuring out ways to get the miles without providing the corresponding value is flat-out dishonest. And BTW: Having multiple FB accounts is a blatant TOS violation, and if they catch Jerry305, they will terminate both of his accounts. Letting Banks place actuarial wagers on our behavior is a calculated risk they take–from which we can benefit by not falling into their modeled behavior. Cheating air carriers is just cheating.

    If you want to enter, and not SPAM the news feed from your friends in Facebook, all you have to do is to select which friends you want to share this with at each stamp, and select custom list, and then select “only me”
    That way you can earn all your miles and don’t have to open a new Facebook account

      Excellent suggestion, jfe. Thank you for the tip!
