50% Bonus on Purchased or Gifted AAdvantage Miles

Now through January 30th, you can receive a 50% bonus on purchased or gifted AAdvantage miles. 

For reference, AAdvantage miles are purchased through Points.com and you won’t be able to earn a category bonus if you have credit card that gives you extra points for airfare purchases such as the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express.

Here’s the bonus schedule:

As a point of reference, here are the fees for purchasing 75,000 miles and up to 100,000 miles. 100,000 miles will get you a round-trip business class ticket to Europe, in many cases.

I still think there are easier ways of accumulating 100,000 miles without having to spend close to $3,000, however, if you are short miles, or in need of purchasing a ticket soon and see the business class fares above 3K, this offer may save you quite a bit of money (keep in mind, there are still taxes and fees, though).

Here are the terms and conditions:

AAdvantage members must purchase at least 5,000 AAdvantage miles or more in a single transaction from the Buy Miles or Gift Miles program beginning 7:00:00 am CT on January 6, 2015 to 11:59 pm CT January 30, 2015, to be eligible for bonus miles.

Each AAdvantage member is limited to purchasing or receiving in a calendar year, a combined total of no more than one hundred thousand (100,000) AAdvantage miles.
