Offer is valid for recipients of this email only. Only AAdvantage® members who receive this email will be eligible to earn AAdvantage® bonus miles. To qualify, you must have referred friends between October 22, 2008, and January 31, 2009, and referred friends must have enrolled in the AAdvantage program as new members, successfully registered for the promotion via the promotional microsite, and completed an eligible activity (travel on American Airlines, American Eagle or the AmericanConnection® carriers, get approved for a select Citi® / AAdvantage® card, or transact and earn at least 750 miles with any of our many AAdvantage program participants) between October 22, 2008, and January 31, 2009.

I thought all my friends were AAdvantage members.

Nice offer, looks targeted but I hope I get one too.

Note from the T&C's - the friend has to actually use their account, either by flying or getting partner miles, worth reading the fine print on this one.

And I'm sure we'll see lots of speculation about having cats/dogs/etc join aadvantage now to get this promo but I'll leave that testing to the more devious among us.

Just got the same e-mail. Live search club miles look like they will count, so for 1800 tickets (about 2 days of playing for 2 hours each) you can get activity on that family member's account. If you don't know about LSC, check the SPAM forum sticky.

Looks like I'll be giving friends and family 2k AA accounts to get them started.

Maybe they can use the Bose offer and you can get your bonus miles.

I believe that's the fine print referred to so far.

2 daughters have identical accounts and they have signed up at the same time. One of them got this promotion - actually the only one who got this promotion in the family. Therefore I see no rhyme or reason for who gets it.

I just got it as well. My friendships are too valuable to me for me to try and market to them for a thousand miles. The relationships are worth a lot more than that.

Cheers.

Does anyone have suggestions for cheap and quick ways to get 750 miles other than club bing? How about flower purchases or car rentals?

Since miles are posting quick, a flight would prob be the fastest. You can do flowers, maybe netflix if it's still there, buy points, etc..
