SimplyMiles Promotion

Buy Unlimited American Airlines Miles for $0.41

SimplyMiles is a shopping portal that earns you American Airlines miles for your purchases. They have some good rates here and there usually, but I often find Rakuten or TopCashback to have the better rates.

However, right now SimplyMiles has an amazing promotion that was first reported by Bougie Miles. You can earn an extra 5x American Airlines miles for every completed offer, up to 3 offers. That mans that you get get a total of 6x of whatever the published earning rate is. For some of the offers listed on the SimplyMiles site, that means buying AAdvantage miles for as little as $0.0041.

Update 12/28/21: We are getting reports that people are starting to see it in their simply miles account. Then there were reports that they disappeared later on in the day yesterday.  They have said they will honor the deal so hopefully this is only a temporary issue for anyone that used the offer.

The Offer

As a special holiday bonus, through December 27 or while supplies last, earn an additional 5x American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles on every offer site-wide. For example, if you earn 100 miles on a purchase of $30 or more, then you will actually earn 100 miles + 500 bonus miles for a total of 600 miles.

See the promotion here. There’s a limit of 3 uses per account.

The Math

One of the most lucrative offers is for making a donation to Conservation International. You would normally earn 40 miles for every $1 you donate. But right now you would earn 6x that rate, which means 240 miles for every $1.

There’s also an offer to earn 4600 miles on a purchase of $60 or more at AT&T. Multiplied by 6, that means you’ll get over 27,600 miles for spending $60.

Offers could vary from one account to the other.


This is an incredible promotion. Buying American Airlines miles for 41 cents is a great opportunity to lock in cheap fares for the future. There’s really no limit on how much you can earn, besides the maximum of 3 uses per account. So it’s up to you to decide how big you want to go.

To use SimplyMiles you need to have an American Airlines AAdvantage credit card. But you can add any Mastercard to your account and use it to take advantage of the offers listed. Just make sure you save the offers first before making a purchase.

  1. Crap. Missed out. Too many blogs, too little time. I’d like to just get the “Act fast” articles rather than the “Here’s another drunk passenger being kicked off”… Somehow I missed this one.

  2. The disappearance of Simply Miles points associated with the deal is NOT a claw back. AA and MC are working through technical issues. The offer’s terms and conditions said points will be delivered within about 8 weeks. Given them that time and be patience.

  3. Ha, yeah, a certain well-known travel blogger (and others too, I’m sure) spent/donated large sums to Conservation International with the intent of scoring hundreds of thousands of AA points for future premium travels. Put in $150 myself, which will hopefully score a domestic round-trip ticket. My skepticism, combined with my bottom-of-the-barrel opinion of American Airlines, restrained me from trying anything more ambitious. We’ll see what shakes out.

  4. Already dead do to bloggers like OMAAT trying to purchase millions of miles with this offer. They screwed us all out of extra miles.

    • I agree. Really greedy and opportunistic. Why take advantage and ruin it for everyone? Need more civilized restraint.

    • If these bloggers were trying to capture the deal solely for themselves, they would not disclose it. And, the dozen or so primary bloggers alone could not have cleaned out the cookie jar. Their purchases represent a drop in the bucket of the total points that were available. There are thousands of readers who took advantage of the opportunity. So, it is more a matter of those readers vs. you who were able to cash in. Your comments express self-interest rather than concern for the greater good. You sound like entitled millennials. Lastly, in a conversation with one of the bloggers (not Ben), his focus was on helping people get a great deal.

  5. The promo was pulled. Took me an hour to login today and it’s not there. For reference I also have elite status and usually get nice promos.

    • I know. LOL. I’m getting a crack out of the many bloggers that are missing a decimal point or two or three! Yep, the website has been crashing all morning. Like I said, I doubt this is going to turn out as well as people think.

      There is NO way Mastercard is going to be paying out the tens or hundreds of millions of miles/points like people think they are.

    • Maybe I’m missing something but it seems like $0.41 and 41 cents are equivalent. 41/100 = .41. $1.41 would be one dollar and 41 cents. .0041 = 41/10,000
