I absolutely love it when companies hand out free airline miles or hotel points because not only is it obviously a free way to pad your balance, but it is also a free an easy way to extend the life of your miles.
Currently American Airlines AAdvantage is offering 1,000 free bonus miles if you watch some short videos about the AAdvantage program and answer some simple questions. The whole process takes no more than 10 minutes (and you can still do other things at the same time), and at the end you will earn 1,000 bonus miles that I would value at around $15 minimum, so that’s not bad for 10 minutes of “work”!
Earning those miles will also reset the 18 month clock for the expiration of your American Airlines miles, so that is really great in case you happen to not use your AAdvantage account very frequently. This is the sort of promo that is worth doing for the whole family to make sure no one misses out, so make sure to get the AAdvantage numbers of all the accounts you manage ready so you can knock this out all at once (or better yet get your older tech savvy kid to do it for you).
