AA miles expiring
« on: April 14, 2013, 03:17:31 PM »
My 85k AA miles are set to expire in May, whats is the cheapest/simplest way to keep them going another 18 month?

AA tells me I can either donate 1k to Make a wish foundation or buy 1k for $59.

Any ideas?

I know when my friends UA miles were expiring I made a 99 cent purchase through the UA mall on iTunes through his account and that acted as miles earned so it pushed their expiration date bc of the earning. You can try the same idea using your AA account, I cannot confirm 100% that it would work like my UA one, but it should. GL

Those malls are far from reliable, if it doesn't track and post you'll be SOL.

This is more reliable:

Only did the mall once, seemed to work.

Had some expiring delta miles once and went for the magazines especially bc they mailed me a letter with specials for certain magazines.

Delta miles don't expire anymore and yet they still send out those magazine offers.

Well then, rookie mistake on my part, but I only had like 3,500 miles (never fly them except for once) which got me 3 subscriptions so I can't complain

+1 I think it's awful on their part how they market it like your miles are about to expire.

I did a purchase on my friends acct (his acct was expiring), the miles posted like 6 weeks after the purchase and extended his expiring miles for another 18 months
