Bonus promotion with AA (shopping/dining) partners: 2k/5k/10k [ended Jun 2017]

just got this new bonus offer via email, reminded me of old USAir promos
the more partner transactions, the bigger the bonus

not seeing it on aa.com yet. it was emailed to me for subscribing to aa.com promotions, no code, doesn't appear to be targeted, and nothing to register for. it said:
"Earn up to 10,000 bonus milesWhether it’s Mom’s or Dad’s special day, graduation or an upcoming birthday, the more you transact with participating partners through June 15, the more American Airlines AAdvantageŽ bonus miles you can earn.
  • Transact with 2 partners, earn 2,000 bonus miles
  • Transact with 3 partners, earn 5,000 bonus miles
  • Transact with all 4 partners, earn 10,000 bonus miles"
1800 flowers, eshopping, aadining, and wine, appear to be the partners
clicking the links in the email didn't bring up any fine print or minimum spending requirements. They just opened up normal partner windows to buy stuff. Seems like a potentially cheap way to get 10k miles

Edited to add:
there are now terms and a post on aa.com
min spends now thru 6/15:
flowers...whatever minimum you can buy,,,say $30?

so its about $146 for 10,000 miles by my math, or about 1.46 cents per mile (not including the base miles for the actual transactions...whatever those are, like 30 miles per dollar for flowers, etc). plus the work to do the orders, but hey, if you're going to do any of these activities or can do it with OPM, it's 10k miles you would't otherwise have.
