American AAdvantage updates the current buy miles offer with an additional 20% bonus (or other gifts)


A few weeks ago we let you know about the latest American AAdvantage Buy Miles offer as follows:

Earn up to 18,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles when you buy AAdvantage Miles online. Full details

AAdvantage members must purchase or gift between 6,000 and 14,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction from the buyAAmiles® or giftAAmiles® program to be eligible for 1,800 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift between 15,000 and 29,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible for 4,500 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift between 30,000 and 44,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible to earn 9,000 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift between 45,000 and 59,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible to earn 13,500 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift 60,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible to earn 18,000 bonus miles
That offer has not changed but has been updated with the following addition bonus and or gifts if you buy the full amount of 60,000 AAdvantage Miles in one transaction:
If you buy or gift 60,000 miles in a single transaction an e-mail will be sent to you in January 2014 to let you choose one of the following special holiday gifts, to make your travel even more rewarding.
  •  20% additional bonus miles – In addition to the 30% bonus you can earn 20% extra bonus miles that will be deposited into your account by January 31, 2014
  • 10% off flights on aa.com – Save 10% on flights on aa.com when you book by February 6, 2014, for travel starting February 18, 2014 through May 18, 2014
  • 5,000-mile discount on award – Get a 5000-mile discount for up to three passengers, that’s a total saving of up to 15,000 miles when you book between January 24, 2014 and February 21, 2014, for travel between February 18, 2014 through May 18, 2014 (for flights originating in contiguous US or Canada)
  • Three 500-mile upgrades – If you are an AAdvantage Elite Member you can enjoy an additional three 500-mile upgrades
Unless you plan on buying some real expensive flights with AA to utilize the 10% off offer you're best bet is to choose the 20% additional bonus miles (an extra 12,000 miles). Of course if you have no immediate need for AAdvantage miles you are even more better off by buying US Airways Dividend Miles with an up to 100% bonus until December 20th since US Airways Dividend Miles will be redeemable for American Airlines flights in only a few months.
