However, when I go into the reservation to enter my number, it won't accept it. Is this normal?
I'm having this same issue. I definitely entered my AA number in the reservation during booking, but I'm getting the same "there is no American Airlines AAdvantage account number attached to the reward" message.

The "Add AAdvantage Number" button in the reservation on Rocketmiles.com and in the confirmation email won't accept it either.


So I tried it one more time - this time entering the AA number all in lower case (no capital letters). It accepted it that way.

Go figure.

Does anyone know if a maximum annual LP from RocketMiles is applicable?

Thanks!

For either BookAA or Rocketmiles, do you get a receipt that can be turned in on an expense report? Itemized, showing the charge, etc. Or a folio from Marriott type.

I had two stays in the last month and both times, I got an email on checkout day from Rocketmiles stating "thank you for your stay, you earned XX AAdvantage Miles, To account XXXXXXX and they would post miles by XX date.
For a checkout on March 5, the email said my miles would post by March 19, for the checkout of March 8, they said posting by March 22

The Headers for both emails read " Your XXXXXX AAdvantage Miles are On Their Way"

Yeah, I'm on day 4 after my most recent checkout and day 9 after the one before that. No joy yet. I have 33K miles hanging in the balance!! I have no doubt I'll get them but I'm still nervous about how they'll post.

All my stays in February posted exactly 3 calendar days after checkout.

Mine posted today -- Day 12 after checkout. The booking was through bookaahotels.com. All points, including the 2,000 point boost posted as LP.

Does anyone know if the CSR travel credit triggers off of bookaahotels? Could be any easy way to get some miles without actually having to pay for it.

How is that not having to pay for it? Do you not have $300 in travel expenses in a year?

Not that doesn't get paid for. I only fly AA and it's work funded, same with lodging and car rental. I can use the AMEX for WiFi on the plane. I live on a tropical island so I don't have to go visit family they come visit me.

Did any of you who got LPs from bookAAhotels.com got any emails at any point saying that the miles have been earned and are coming, after checkout?

RocketMiles apparently sends such emails but I've never received one from BAAH (6 stays).

You get an email after the miles post on every Tuesday evening.....so if your miles posted on Wednesday, you will get an email from bookaa next Tuesday that xxx miles posted to your AA account for specific dates.
