AAdvantage Credit Card Reduced Mileage Awards For January-March 2012!

Q1 Reduced Mileage Awards Linky

You can book tickets for 7,500 less miles than American Airlines regularly charges if you have an AAdvantage Platinum Select Consumer or Business credit card.

To book these awards just call AA’s AAdvantage desk at 800-882-8880 and reference the following award code:
7,500 miles off Coach: TB8X7A
7,500 miles off Business/First: UB21X2A

You may be able to avoid the $20 phone booking charge by first placing a reservation on hold at aa.com and then calling up AAdvantage to have them reduce the cost of the award by 7,500 miles and ask for the fee to waived since it was originally booked on their website.

Below is a sample list of some of Q1’s valid destinations, origination is allowed from any US48 City.

-Atlanta
-Charlotte
-Cleveland
-Colorado Springs
-Kansas City
-Minneapolis
-New Orleans
-S Louis

-Calgary
-Halifax
-Montreal
-Ottawa
-Vancouver

Note:
-People have had success with being able to originate from any “destination” city and fly to any US48 city for the discounted rate simply by holding the ticket on aa.com and then referencing the award code above to an AAdvantage agent to get the required mileage reduced by 7,500!
-People have also had success booking a one-way award for 8,750 miles (3,750 reduced miles)
-Neither are officially allowed, so your mileage may vary based on the rep you get!

    My card does not say select but is Aadvantage visa platinum level. I imagine it applies to my card. Correct?

    @joeb1: Correct. But NYC – Arizona: BA – 35K, AA – 17K, is a big difference. etc…

    What if I already reserved a ticket with AA in February, can I call up and ask them to reduce the amounts by 7500 miles?

    BA is great for nonstop short coach flights within the western hemisphere.
    For anything else AA miles are better.

    this only works for certain destinations. Doesn’t work for Tucson! 🙁
    But on the upside, AA reservations are really nice. So at least I had a nice experience on the phone.

    Can I use my AA miles to book someone else a ticket? I’m thinking of getting their Platinum Card if I can.
