I remember when there was a promotion in celebration of the existence of the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program for 30 years, which offered daily prizes of 30,000 AAdvantage miles.

Yes, I realize that many other “bloggers” have reported on this when the announcement of this sweepstakes was released — with some of them exclaiming that you should hurry!!! There is no hurry to enter and participate in this sweepstakes, as long as you enter by June 1…

…and I understand that the official Internet web site for this sweepstakes was so inundated the first day that it was difficult to access. I figured I would wait until the frenzy subsided and announce it now so that you may conveniently participate at your leisure — which I would recommend doing, as it only takes a moment of your time…

…but HURRY!!!
