After dining at a participating AAdvantage Dining restaurant and paying the bill with your linked credit card or debit card during the Promotion Period, you may receive an email invitation from Sponsor to review the restaurant. Click on the provided link within the email invitation and submit a review for your recent dining experience. Online orders placed through third-party online ordering or delivery sites will not qualify as an entry into the AAdvantage Dining Bonus Miles Sweepstakes.
Review Guidelines: Your honest feedback and/or opinion is required. A positive review or endorsement will not increase your chances of winning. You must include the hashtag #sweepstakesentry in your review. The entire review form must be completed. Reviews must not be indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, or libelous or contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights or contain material that is unlawful in any way. Your review must be submitted within 30 days of the dining date. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant where it finds the review unlawful, or in violation of these Official Rules, all in its sole discretion.
Upon submitting a fully completed review that meets the review guidelines and includes the hashtag #sweepstakesentry in your review, you automatically will receive one entry into the applicable Entry Period based on the dining date. For example, if you dine on February 27, 2021, and submit your qualified review on March 28, 2021, you will receive one entry into Entry Period 4.
Sweepstakes Opt Out: If you wish to take the above actions without being entered into the Sweepstakes, hand print your name, address, phone number, email address, and American Airlines AAdvantage membership account number on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to “AAdvantage Dining℠ Bonus Miles Sweepstakes – OPT OUT,” c/o Merkle Inc., P.O. Box 5011, Department 845453, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5011. To be honored, your request must be received by March 8, 2021. By opting out of the Sweepstakes, you automatically forfeit any Sweepstakes entries earned.
Alternative Method of Entry
If you do not wish to make a dining purchase, submit a review or join AAdvantage Dining, hand print your name, address, phone number, email address, American Airlines AAdvantage membership account number, and date of birth on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage and entry period indicated to “AAdvantage Dining℠ Bonus Miles Sweepstakes – Entry Period [insert #],” c/o Merkle Inc., P.O. Box 5011, Department 845453, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5011. You will receive one entry into the Sweepstakes drawing for the applicable Entry Period based on the date the mail-in request is post-marked and received. Limit: One entry per envelope. All mail-in entries must be handwritten and must be postmarked by and received by the dates listed in Section 3. All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and none will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected, or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.
The total approximate retail value of all of the grand prizes is $2,150.00, with four winners in total.
Two winners will each have 50,000 miles credited to his or her American Airlines AAdvantage membership account. The approximate retail value of this prize is $850.00.
Two winners will each have 75,000 miles credited to his or her American Airlines AAdvantage membership accounts. The approximate retail value of this prize is $1,300.00.
No purchase or payment is required or necessary to enter, play, win or claim a prize; and a purchase or payment will not increase your odds or chances of winning.
You must be a legal resident of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who is at least 18 years of age or older at the time of entry with a valid e-mail account at the time of entry. You must also be a member of the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program — as well as the AAdvantage dining program. You may join the dining program here at no cost if you are not already a member.
This contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law.
The credited miles may thereafter be redeemed in any manner consistent with the terms and conditions of the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program, which are subject to change at any time without notice. Prizes cannot be transferred; and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the sole discretion of the sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Limit: One prize per person.

- Privacy and personal information
- Release and limitations of liability
- Selection and verification of winners

I only found out about this sweepstakes hours ago via e-mail message; so I apologize for not being able to write and post this article soon enough so that you could have been eligible for the first of four entry periods in this sweepstakes. I really wish that all notices from frequent travel loyalty programs would be more timely and not irritatingly late.
If you decide to participate in this sweepstakes, good luck to you, as I hope that you are one of the four winners.
