Who is paying for this? Who knows!
One thing we can say, all the extra flying people will be doing will fully offset all of the conservation efforts!

I think it's likely this will get pulled early, but they're going to have a very hard time not honoring this as confirmed to @gleff for as long as the site mentions the offer.

Question is if they end up making a hard time and not honoring it if it's possible to dispute the credit card charge based on that?

A ~$416K donation would 100,000,000 miles.

A ~$416K donation would 100,000,000 miles.
Anyone that has this amount of money liquid and puts it into a mileage program is 1) insane in the brain or 2) insanely wealthy and doesn't care about their money. Invest the money in a real asset!!!

(It would be near impossible to liquidate these miles on the gray market.)

Or they need to make a donation anyway for tax purposes.

Mark Cuban spent $600K in 1990 ($1.275M in 2021 dollars) for an AAirpass :)

Commenter is wrong. Donation email comes right away and mentions the miles.
This has to be on borrowed time.

Also why is everyone going for the donate option when you can buy stuff you can actually use ?? https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/airlines/aa/hot-targeted-american-simplymiles-offers-earn-240-miles-per-dollar-spent-donated/#comment-1554757
Scalability/ease?

Wine.com can be a good deal, though you need to factor the extra cost vs kosherwine.com.
