American Airlines has a new bonus offer that can easily earn you up to 1,000 extra miles when you shop through their shopping portal. Since many of us are stuck at home, Miles to Memories is focusing on deals that don’t require you to leave the house and this is a good one.
During the “2X Shop Bonus” offer, which runs from 3/16/20 through 3/27/20 at 11:59:59 pm ET, Member will earn a one-time bonus of up to 1,000 AAdvantage miles on qualifying purchases, in addition to the standard AAdvantage miles earned from shopping online through the AAdvantage eShopping mall.
This one-time bonus award will be determined based on the number of individual “qualifying purchases” of $5 or more during the Bonus Period using one of the following Tiers: . “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles. Please see the AAdvantage eShopping mall site for details on product eligibility and other restrictions. The Tier 4 bonus provides the maximum number of miles that will be awarded per member.

Tier 1 bonus: 250 miles for 2 or 3 individual qualifying purchase of $5 or more;
Tier 2 bonus: 500 miles for 4 or 5 individual qualifying purchases of $5 or more;
Tier 3 bonus: 750 miles for 6 or 7 individual qualifying purchases of $5 or more;
Tier 4 bonus: 1,000 miles for 8 or more individual qualifying purchases of $5 or more
This bonus adds 250 additional miles for every 2 purchases in addition to the normal payout you will receive from the portal. The strategy here is to use the AA portal for all of your small purchases or break purchases into smaller orders so long as there’s no extra shipping fees, you should come out ahead. Also, don’t forget to stack purchases using sites like SimplyMiles and card linked apps like Dosh. I’d still check a comparison site like Cashback Monitor to make sure you are getting the best return.
