This morning I spent about 10 minutes earning 885 free and easy American Airlines miles via their AAdvantage® Passport Challenge on FacebookYes, you do have to have Facebook for this one, sorry to those who aren’t into social media.  It also states it is for legal residents of the US 50 states/DC.  They advertize it as earning over 10,000 miles, but here is how that breaks down.

  • Play trivia and other games to earn up to 700 miles
  • Share and complete social actions to earn up to 350 miles
  • Fly our expanded network to earn over 9,000 miles

AAdvantage Passport Challenge

The challenge is open now through May 23, 2014.  I spent about 10 minutes playing and didn’t do most of the ones that required you to “share” things with friends or join other social media channels, and I earned 885 AAdvantage miles.  You could easily hit 1,000 miles if you wanted to share things with some friends.  Otherwise, you will likely top out at around the same amount I earned.  However, that is pretty great in my view for 10 minutes of your time answering some trivia questions about American Airlines, US Airways, and their partners.  Don’t worry if you don’t know all the answers.  Many are easy to guess, you get two tries (of three possible answers), and even if you miss it you seem to still earn the miles.  Make sure to click on all the icons, even the ones that seem related to actually flying, as you can often get at least 50 miles for answering some trivia questions.

This is a great way to not only add to your mileage total, but also earn some easy miles in some accounts you manage that may not have very regular activity.  Of course, those accounts do have to have Facebook to take advantage.  If you actually have travel on US Airways or American coming up you may earn even more miles thanks to this promo!

How many miles did you earn?  Thanks to View From the Wing for sharing!

  1. For the ones that want you to “share,” when the share dialog box comes up you can change the setting right then and there to post so “only me” can see it, that way you can get your miles without spamming your friends!
