Via View From the Wing and Flyertalk, it looks like the American Airlines AAdvantage e-Shopping portal has another good bonus coming our way from December 8th – December 22nd with a tiered shopping bonus that awards up to 3,000 bonus points for $250 in purchases.
- Spend $75 earn a bonus 1,000 miles
- Spend $150 earn a bonus 2,000 miles
- Spend $250 earn a bonus 3,000 miles
This bonus is not yet displayed on the main American Airlines shopping portal page, but can be accessed here. If you spend a cumulative $250 during the promotion this amounts to a bonus 12 miles per dollar on top of whatever other bonus is available via the portal for the retailer(s) you are utilizing. That is a very good bonus!
The downside is a spotty payout history that this portal seems to have for mileage bonuses, at least for some people. I have not yet received the 2,000 mile bonus for spending $35 via the AA portal from September. The terms say the bonus miles will take 8-10 weeks, and by my count the 10th week from when that promo ended will be this coming Monday. So, technically the bonus is not yet late, and some are reporting it appearing in their accounts, but I am sure that some people will have to follow-up to get the bonus miles to pay out. I will be following up next week if my bonus 2,000 miles from that promo don’t post, and I fully expect that to resolve the issue just as it has in the past. Ultimately even if I forgot to do that it wouldn’t be a huge loss since I only buy things I would have bought regardless of whether or not the promo existed.
Terms: From 12/08/13 through 12/22/13 11:59 PM EST receive a one-time additional bonus of up to 3,000 miles when you spend a cumulative amount of $250 or more with the AAdvantage eShopping mall. Spend a cumulative amount of $75-149.99 to earn 1,000 miles; spend a cumulative amount of $150 – $249.99 to earn 2,000 bonus miles; or spend a cumulative amount of $250 or more to earn 3,000 bonus miles. Purchases made at FTD.com through the AAdvantage eShopping mall, returns, shipping, taxes, gift card purchases, and certain products are not eligible for bonus; please see site for coupon code or usage restrictions. Please allow 8-10 weeks from end of promotional period for bonus miles to post to your account. Void where prohibited by law.
