Thanks OP.

If I read the terms correctly in the AA bonus, the $100 does not have to be spent at one time? Is that how everyone else interprets it?

I haven't checked the others, but the AA and Delta bonuses are open to "online and VIP members", not just VIP members.

I'm thankful for this clarification as well. I had read it for some reason that I had to spend $100 per dine to get the bonus. I had registered, but figured I wasn't likely to hit this one. Now I know what I'm having for dinner tonight

The most to my knowledge one has ever been required to spend in one sitting for any of the IDINE promotions was $50.

Inasmuch as Delta and AA have been the most generous with the bonuses this past year, it seems quite unlikely that AA would require a one time spend of $100 plus to earn the bonus.

As it currently stands, depending on the DL bonus you had received, DL will provide a pro rata 1,500 bonus miles per $100 spend (3,000 miles if you spend at least $200 by the end of the promotion, but it tops off at 3,000 miles), AA gives you 1,000 bonus miles per $100 spend (topping off at a maximum 5,000 miles), and United provides a pro rata 500 bonus miles per $100 spend (1,000 miles per a minimum $200 spend, with a max bonus earning of 5,000 miles). However, United's promotion has run the longest, as DL's and AA's wasn't "released" until some time after August 1, 2008.

All the above promotions end on 9/30/08, presumably inclusive of that date.

You had split-pea soup and some cheesy bread. No miles for that.

The cheesy bread was good, though.

edit: not to imply that the soup wasn't.

So I called Delta RN... and Wanda advised this is a targetted promotion not available to all. Bummer.

She advised another promo is on its way but couldn't give details with start date most likely Aug. 31st.

What is the max you can earn in one day at a restaurant? I was going to go to Moretti's tonight and buy $500 in g.c. so I can get the max 5000 mile bonus, but I don't think I could/should do it all in one day.

The max miles you can earn is basically determined by the earning rate and the maximum spend allowed in one restaurant, usually monthly, and / or how many visits are allowed (some restaurants may only allow one visit per month, others may be unlimited.) Most legacy restaurants allow up tp $600 per month, and newer ones allow $1000 monthly, whether you spend in one month or in one dine is up to you. A few vary from these - I have seen restaurants with no limits on spending.

The resto detailed listing on Rewards Network will tell you which credit cards they accept, days they issue miles, spend limits, etc. Click on the line entitled Benefit Guidelines and you will see something like:

"Benefits Guidelines »
Unlimited visits; miles awarded on qualifying dines up to the maximum spending limit of $1000 per month."

You could spend this in one dine if you chose.

Though the Miles Upon Miles bonus has the usual disclaimer ("Please allow 6-8 weeks for any bonus miles to post to your AAdvantage account,") Lady JDiver has already had 2,000 of these miles post to iDine and AAdvantage. Almost as quickly as the dines themselves!

(We're getting her all the miles right now - I am trying to delay crossing the 4 million threshold until >/=Jan 1 2009 for eVIPs with one more year of validity than I got them in C/Y 2008.)
