This is especially great in case you need to extend the life of your miles. Like most domestic mileage programs, AA requires activity every 18 months to keep your account alive!
“Please allow 10-12 weeks for AAdvantage miles to post to your account. Maximum of 500 miles per household per year. Offer void in CT, GA, IA, ME, MA, MO, NV, NJ, NM, NY and UT.”
