"You must download the toolbar on this page, and perform at least 1 toolbar search and or make 1 toolbar purchase with a participating toolbar retailer before June 30, 2010 to earn the 500 mile bonus. Bonus miles will post to your AAdvantage account within 8 to 10 weeks after the promotion end date. You will only earn the 500 mile toolbar download bonus the first time you download the toolbar."

Reason: updated to more specific link
it looks like you get 1 mile for every 3 searches with the yahoo searches as well, up to 100 points per month. don't know how long they will offer that, but you can get up to 1200 miles that way per year.
if nothing else, good way to keep your existing miles from expiring.
The thing says it doesn't install any adware/spyware on the installation site, but I don't know much about it. It is a bit grueling to run through 300 searches a month...I was able to get all of mine done. A mile is a mile.
I'm really glad AAdvantage hopped on board with the search rewards. Boy do I love free things. Microsoft, Swagbucks (Google/Ask.com?), now Yahoo. Pity Microsoft took away the ability to get tickets by solely using their toolbar. Microsoft should bring that back. I don't like playing the games very much.
Did AAdvantage have a toolbar like this before, or is this the first time? I ran across a page promoting this about a month ago, but once I tried clicking any of the links on the page, I was informed that there was an error. Did I encounter an old promotion page, or did I stumble upon a glitch and get a peak into the future?
I installed it for the quick 500 miles. I'm not sure it's worth it for the additional 100 miles monthly. At the end of the day, I still prefer the old and trustworthy Google. I'll probably uninstall it after the 500 miles post. Thanks to the OP.
