I almost clicked, then realized that my "liking" American Airlines would pollute the pages of all my friends. I get enough of that from others.

I'll pass.

Easy fix. Mark their posts as "Only Me", then no one else can see them.

You don't have a second FB account whose only purpose is for deals like this?

I already liked them too. I was able to simply fill out the survey for 500 miles. No need to unlike.

I'm getting an Invalid AAdvantage number error message. I've had this number (one letter followed by 6 numbers) since the mid-1980's. It's the same number that shows when I log in at aa.com. What gives?

Edited to add: Yes, I'm a US member.

I presume this will extend the 18 month expiration period

How very weird. I phoned AA and the CSR told me that he found my account with the same 6 numbers but a different first letter. When I log in and even when I use "forgot my AAdvantage number", the original correct account number is shown. Anyway I used the new incorrect first letter and the Facebook page accepted it.

Is this a security setting or do you have the option with each like page?
