I am thinking about cancelling my booking, and re-booking the trip. need to take slightly different routing. Seems like its worth the 150k miles in my case

$225 for 2900 for me. All prior offers I've had have been for premium cabin travel, and that's my usual purchase pattern outside of GPUs on foreign travel. Not sure where they come up with these offers.

Iíve never received any offers of any kind since the global financial crisis when we saw DEQM and Elite offers for Hawaii flights.

Dine wit Mileage Plus Dining - 500
Shop through MileagePlug Shopping - 500
Download and use the Mileage Plus App- 500

complete all three for an extra 1500

There's nothing useful with Dining anywhere close to where I live, but I'm thinking I could do the other two and pick up 1K miles for a pretty token amount since there's nothing about minimum spend in the T&C that I could find. Anyone know a cheap option that will trigger the online shopping one?

Book two flights in a premium cabin for 14,000 miles. I already have an itinerary 3/2-3/14 in which the return is a P fare. I can’t squeeze in 2 more flights before 3/2. Thanks, but no thanks.

Book and take a trip 3 times by March 10, 2019 to get 17k bonus miles. $225 minimum fare.

Much better offer than last MilePlay. Might be able to swing this if I book my upcoming multi city flight as 2 separate reservations.

If you're already booked then the trip likely won't count anyway, unfortunately. I say likely because I've seen it a few times but it's certainly not a given.

2x$225 for 5,200

Better than the last couple I've gotten, but probably not good enough to actually do it, especially within the tight time frame

I had some travel pop up, and I thought I could make this work for four trips over $500 for 37,000 miles.

I had an additional trip pop up, and if I split it to two one-ways, I could make it work, and I blissfully found one-ways with connections for $516 compared to the direct round-trip I would normally take for $1,100.

Sadly, after reading in more detail, the "fare" has to be more than $500, excluding any gov't taxes. My $516 one-ways only have fares of about $460, which evidently do not qualify for the offer.

So, everyone be careful with those fares that just barely exceed the minimum requirements.

I got an offer for 20K miles for taking 1 trip in a premium cabin (minimum fare $550). Iím thinking of cheating on AA to do this later today.
