By now, I’m sure you’ve heard that you can test drive a Cadillac and earn 7,500 AAdvantage miles. However, what if you wanted to earn those miles without test driving a Cadillac? Easy.
Car dealers want to sell you cars. Period. They don’t like wasting their time in having you take a test drive for a car that you’d never consider buying. Further, if you show no interest in their sales pitch, they’ll show no interest in you. For a mileage earner, it’s a win-win situation.
From the terms on their website:
Once the test drive is completed, the dealer will enter your participation on the website, and upon confirmation, the miles will be applied to your AAdvantage account within 4-6 weeks. An email confirmation will be sent to you.
Here’s what you can do to try to earn the 7,500 AAdvantage miles without a test drive.
1. Schedule a test-drive. Call a Cadillac Concierge at 844-469-2234 OR Use the chat online feature on Cadillac.com.
2. Email the General Manager at the Cadillac dealer which you scheduled the test drive. Kindly let the manager know you want to earn the AAdvantage miles, but simply have no interest in purchasing a vehicle. To them, this saves you having to take a test drive and wasting time where they could be selling a vehicle to another customer. Seeing this, the manager who you speak with may decide to simply report you having taken the test drive, that way you can earn the miles without ever stepping foot in the car. There are many folks reporting success with this, and to the dealers, it simply saves them time and energy to focus on real customers.
Has anyone been successful with this so far? Or, are you actually going into a Cadillac dealer to take the test drive yourself?
