if i buy something thru aadvantage eshopping. and then return it do i still get the points? r they able to track it?
lets say i purchase $100 from a store that gives 7 points per dollar so i get 700 points. if i return that in store will that make me lose those points?
would this be a good way to get some miles towards mm status?

I dunno about this particular instance, but similar sites are definitely able to track returns and will reverse the bonuses upon returns, I dunno about this particular instance.

Yes, they will reverse the miles.

With Nordstrom they've reversed it about 3 of the 5 times I've done it.

Does AA ever upgrade LT golds or plats without using the 500 mile stickers?

No, except for the elusive op-up.

Nope, those are 8 domestic 500 miler upgrades that do not expire.
You get 4 international upgrades (that do expire) if you have an international address.

Is there any risk in changing your address?
Can i change it back right after i get the SWU's? (how soon do they post after reaching 1MM?)

Dan,

When you called AA to have them resend your Gold welcome kit (after changing back the address), what was your rationale?
How long would you suggest waiting after hitting 1MM before changing it back and making the call?

I would love 8 stickers in addition to the 4 SWU's ;)
