AAdvantage Credit Card Reduced Mileage Awards For April-June 2013

Related: Q1 Award List

Q2 Reduced Mileage Awards Linky

-You can book tickets for 7,500 less miles than American Airlines regularly charges if you have an eligible AA card.
-Consumer cardholders also get a 10% rebate on miles redeemed, so a coach reduced award will now cost just 15,750 miles round trip after the instant 7,500 mileage reduction and the 10% (in this case 1,750) mileage rebate.

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: TC8X7A
7,500 miles off Business/First: UC21X2A

Below is a sample list of some of Q2’s valid destinations, origination is allowed from any US48 City.
While BA Avios may be a better deal for nonstop short-haul flights, bear in mind that you pay for each segment when redeeming Avios, whereas with AA miles you pay for the entire journey.

-Colorado Springs
-Houston (IAH and HOU)
-New York (LGA)
-S. Barbara, CA
-S. Louis
-Salt Lake City
-Vail, CO
-Washington D.C (DCA and IAD)


Note: Some readers have reported success in:
-Originating from one of the cities on the list and flying to anywhere with a 7,500 mile discount.
-Getting them to waive the $25 phone fee as these can’t be booked online.
-Getting a 3,750 mile discount on one-way travel.
-You can always pull a hidden city trick (for example for fly JFK-LAX-SBA and just get off at LAX), though you’d probably have to forgo checked luggage.

YMMV! (Your mileage may vary)

    Reasons for pulling a hidden city trick?

  2. Al Says:

    If you throw away your final segment, (hidden city), your return trip will be canceled. So, you will pay 17.5k for a one way & not be able to get home.

    how can you do this? wont they cancel your return ticket if you never catch the flight from lax to sba??

  4. Dan Says:

    Hence why you would have to get them to book it as a one-way.

  5. Lamden Says:

    how do you get 10% miles with consumer card?

    does it work for international as well?

    only on RMA?

  6. bubble347 Says:

    Do I have to fly between April and June or just book?

  7. Ro Says:

    Does this apply to AA partner (Elal)

  8. b Says:

    Whats the best way to fly to israel via el al which miles to use thanks

  9. molly Says:

    Can I use this code for international flights, eg regular cost of 45,000 AA miles one way to Israel less 7500 miles— so only costing 37,500?

  10. Lamden Says:

    NO INTERNATIONAL guys, its only domestic.

  11. Amy Says:

    Anyone know if you use the code if you are a cardholder booking tickets for a family member with their miles? I will be booking a ticket for my minor child with miles from his account or my father’s account and would love to figure out a way to use the discount.

  12. confused Says:

    I have a united credit card and I opened another that offered a bonus of 50k. I just received a notice that since I have another united card from chase I can not get the bonus. Is there anything to do?

  13. att confused Says:

    Yes, there is something to do.
    start doing honest work for a living, and dont play shticks.

  14. sara Says:

    Does this only work on AA flights? Or can it be used to book flights on partner airlines as well?

  15. Dima @ Dima's Corner Says:

    Guys, read! Only AA. Only domestic. Has nothing to do with United cards.

    Now, how someone was able to book it one way? I just called and the agent said that the computer would not let her do it, said it required a round-trip reservation…

  16. Kevin Says:

    @Amy: It only works for cardholder and their account. There aren’t any codes. You do it over the phone. Your minor child doesn’t have a AA credit card so it won’t work. Your father could open a AA card it will work for him.
