AAdvantage Credit Card Reduced Mileage Awards For October-December 2012!


Reduced Mileage Awards Linky

You can book tickets for 7,500 less miles than American Airlines regularly charges if you have an AAdvantage Select, Executive, or Business credit 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: TG8X7A
7,500 miles off Business/First: UG21X2A

Below is a sample list of some of Q3’s valid destinations, origination is allowed from any US48 City.
While BA Avios may be a better deal for 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)
-Santa Barbara, CA
-S. Louis
-Washington D.C (DCA)
-West Palm Beach


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)

fan of dan

any shot of getting this on OGG to EWR? Is also already ticketed


Hey Dan.
I’m in college and have a part time job. I’m looking to get my first credit card. I want one that builds my credit and can earn some miles. I wont be doing a great amount of spending and I would prefer not to have to pay a an annual fee, but not definitely. Any suggestions of what card to go with??


How do I get the 10% rebate just booked a ticket got the 7500 mile discount airline knew nothing about rebate


@chicago: Chase Freedom has no annual fee and is great for small ticket purchases and has a fair signup bonus. Ultimate Rewards points will gain value to you as you progress in the credit card game and get other Chase cards like the Sapphire Preferred or the Ink Bold.


Hi off topic q
Is there a way for me to pay my citi mastercard using a amex starward card (need to get 5k in spending)


Dan I can’t understand how you talk abou avios miles as if their just another viable option. Avios availability is the worst of any airline awards I’ve seen.


What inventory do they use for these tickets to check availability online before calling.


It’ll happen automatically within a few weeks.


Are you joking?
The 9K and 15K Avios awards are the best things since sliced bread. As is their lack of infant fees and expedite fees.

sAAver awards.


@Yakov: @Dan: Avios poins can translate as good milage for saver awards nationally, but are, in fact, terrible at saver awards internationally. Talking from experience.


So don’t use them to cross the Atlantic, they’re still great for North America, South America, and Asia.

Though with Aer Lingus or Air Berlin or transferring the points to Iberia they can be used even for crossing the Atlantic without fuel surcharges.


Dan I currently have 112,266 AAdvantage miles and 90k delta miles i have no idea what to do with. I live in Houston. Is there any place to see what cities AA and delta fly directly to from Houston? should i try using the AA miles on BA instead?

I’m looking at the terms and conditions for the 10% rebate and I can’t find anything about it applying to reduced mileage awards.

Does it mention it on Citi’s site?


yeah , i also tried to get 10% rebate but not sure what needs to be done. Do i have to use citi AA card or any card (to pay taxes) to get 10% rebate?
