100 free AA miles

Use this link: https://www.pointshound.com/aadvantage

Create a new account and then under the "Level 1" pull down tab, go to "my account" and add your AAdvantage account number.

100 miles is very little (unless all you're trying to do is generate activity to defer expiration, in which case it's plenty!).

Perhaps more significant is that your first (but only first) hotel booking through pointshound gets you an extra 2000 miles (on top your normal pointshound earnings) during this promotion period.

Any Double Dipping???

I wonder if we booked through Pointshound. Can we still get the Addvantage miles; and lets say I booked the Radisson and used my Club Carlson number at the hotel. Would we still get the points for both?

Check with the specific hotel program, but in general, you cannot earn hotel program points for stays booked at third-party sites. If there is any hotel program in which this would work, it's the exception rather than the rule.

And if you go to the FAQ section of the PointsHound site, they explain this!

100 miles is nice, but what's the cheapest night anyone can find to get the additional 2000 miles? Some lucky hotel somewhere is about to get a lot of bookings!

Days Inn & Suites Omaha NE 1/31 $55

100 free AA miles

To those posting about the Niagara Falls hotels: a lot of them are coming up CAD, which means 18.5% cheaper for those from the U.S.

What's to stop someone from signing up multiple times under different email addresses?

I suspect someone will notice if they're all attached to the same AA account.

Thanks for the tip. I probably would not do this for just 100 points, but the extra 2000 make it worthwhile.
