Holiday Shopping Promotion

Just wanted to give you folks a heads up on a great holiday promotion that will help you get through your shopping list with double miles, courtesy of
AAdvantage eShopping and MasterCard. It's so simple, you don't even have to register! The promotion will go live sometime tomorrow and run through
December 31. To participate, just go to www.aadvantageeshopping.com where you can click through to the sites of roughly 100 name-brand merchants ready to make your gift-giving a snap. During the promotion period, you will earn double miles on all MasterCard transactions at the AAdvantage
eShopping mall. (And of course if the MasterCard you use happens to be a Citi/AAdvantage MasterCard; you'll rack up even more miles!) There are other
neat features of the promotion, such as a Sweepstakes grand prize of 1,000,000 miles, and the opportunity to earn up to 10,000 bonus miles for meeting certain total spending goals with 25 featured merchants. Since all the details won't be on AA.com until tomorrow, I didn't want anyone finishing their holiday shopping today and missing out on this wonderful opportunity.

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for the tip!

I usually do my Aadvantage e-shopping on weekends, but will wait until I see this promotion kick off.

Speaking of double miles for aadvantageshopping.com. does anyone know when the double miles for the previous promo (MULTL) should post? I received credit for a purchase, but not the MULTL bonus.

For a circuitcity.com purchase made on August 12, I received my standard miles on September 28 and my MULTL miles on October 22. I'm still waiting for my peoplepc bonus -- I received my 3,000 miles just one day after my 3rd billing on Oct 18 ($32.85 for 3,000 miles) but have not yet received my MULTL bonus 3,000 miles. Hopefully I get it before the Nov 17 billing -- that would make it $32.85 for 6,000 miles ($0.005475/mile) instead of $43.80 (which is still a good deal at just $0.0073/mile).

This is a great deal if you were going to spend at any of the merchants anyway. I need to purchase a low-end computer from Dell and it looks like it will be worth about 12,000 miles with the threshhold bonus included. Thanks.

Exclamation Question to Your AADvantage Voice re Holiday Shopping Promo!

With respect to the Holdiay Shopping Promo FF mile bonuses for threshold reached -- $250, $500 or $1,000 -- must this be combined spending at each designated holiday shopping merchant, or can be they be a combined total among all of the merchants??

T & C


3. Members will receive a one-time threshold bonus based on total dollars spent with the 25 featured holiday merchants using a valid MasterCard card as the form of payment. A single bonus based on the combined purchases will be either 2,500 miles for $250, 5,000 miles for $500, or 10,000 miles for $1,000 spent. The threshold bonus is determined from combined qualifying purchases during the promotion period with the 25 featured merchants. For a complete list of the featured holiday merchants, please visit www.aa.com/holidayshopping.

Thank you!!

Dell is not a participant in the treshhold bonus program so you wouldn't get 10,000 of those miles.

I read it as a grand total of all merchants participating.

Thank you!!
It's not going to be a problem for me to do this. In fact I've already made a substantial start. It is very likely I won't have to shop at a mall at all this year! Yeah!!!

And right you are; looks like maybe Office Max purchases are in order. Thanks for the clarification.

2,500 - 10,000 bonus miles for shopping online

I just found this last night and I see that somebody already beat me to the punch. Though IMO you should re-word the subject line as "holiday shopping promo" does not really do justice to this promo.

Example: Spend $1000 at Lands End. You receive:

+ 3K miles (3 miles per $ at Lands End)
+ 3K bonus (double miles for using MC)
+ 10K bonus miles (per AA promo detailed in this thread)
+ 1K miles for using Citi AA MC

Total: 17K miles. Tremendous! Particularly for those of us who were already planning to order gifts and clothes.

The other nice feature is that you can aggregate your purchases and don't have to spend it all at one merchant to get the 2.5/5/10K bonus.
