Update: Don’t forget to play up to 6 times daily. I just won several 4,000 miles awards on the game tonight! Which awards have you won?

American launched the world’s first frequent flyer program on 5/1/81, forever changing the loyalty landscape. Within 1 year the program had 144,000 members, today it has over 115 million.

To celebrate, they’re launching a 40th birthday giveaway and sweepstakes.

The game didn’t work for me in Chrome, but it worked for me in Firefox.

You can login daily through 5/3 to win instant win prizes and be entered to be one of 40 people who will win the grand prize of 1 million AAdvantage miles. The program is open to US residents who are 18 and older.

Scroll down to the bottom, accept cookies, and click play to enter daily. You can also click links on the page to gain more spins.

 

My wife and I each did 6 spins and won 40-400 miles per spin. JJ won a main cabin extra upgrade and 5 of the 40 mile awards. The awards will post in 8-10 weeks.

Another bonus is that earning miles will extend the expiration date on all of your miles by 18 months.

Beware that if you do win the million miles, you will get a 1099 for $22,400 of income. Depending on your marginal tax rate of if that amount will make you ineligible for stimulus payments, that can be a very raw deal. However you can potentially adjust that valuation or refuse that prize, so that’s something to discuss with an accountant.

Instant prizes include:

  • 500,000 awards of 40 miles
  • 230,000 awards of 400 miles
  • 50,000 awards of 20% off select Hyatt hotels
  • 45,500 awards of a preferred seat upgrade
  • 35,000 awards of 4,000 miles
  • 22,500 awards of a main cabin extra seat upgrade
  • 7,500 awards of an Admirals Club Day Pass
  • 1,300 awards of a $20 Mastercard gift card
  • 200 awards of a 1 year Admirals Club membership
  • 40 awards of 2 free nights at Park MGM Las Vegas

The Admirals Club membership comes with a 1099 for $650. All other instant win prizes fall below the 1099 threshold.

Post which prizes you win!

EXP Flyer

Chris

6 spins and got 400 miles each time. Not bad. I’ll have the wife do it later, as well.

Jim

I did it but tried for my wife but the line takes me back to my account and no log off option to log in with my wife’s account . Strange! One play one account per phone ?

Shloko

Use incognito browser

nechama

I spun 5 times for 2 accounts. one account got 400 miles per spin. the other account got 3 preferred seat upgrades, 1 car class upgrade plus 500 miles for car rental with avis, and 20% off from FTD

1avigrun

What is ftd

terpy

Dead or website down, multiple browser, using desktop and mobile.

yelped

Still works for me. Do you have a filter? (Corporate filter?

terpy

Never mind, got in.

A

So they value each AAdvantage point at 2.24 cents. Seems pretty high

Mo

500×4
40×1

Shmuliebz

I got

Complimentary One-Car Class Upgrade + minimum of 500 AAdvantage® Miles with Avis

15% Off + a free SimpliCam Camera + 1 Free Month of Professional Monitoring with SimpliSafe

3 Months of Free Service with LifeLock

Anything to do with these?

Dr

Protect your house???

johnny

one day entry to the admiral club, 40, yes 40 miles, and a 30% off rental car coupon.

terpy

Got 2 x 4000 miles on spouse’s account, 1 admirals lounge pass on my account!

1avigrun

Got 4,000 miles in one spin

JW

Hmm, I got some coupons for rental car discounts and then the 20% off Hyatt discount. I hadn’t read the comments so I thought it was these sort of prizes but I see lots of people are getting small amounts of miles. Would sort of prefer that as I don’t know when I’ll travel again so the discounts will probably go unused.

J

FTD, Hyatt 20%, Avis, and 2x no prizes but grand sweepstakes entries

Ben

Won 4k AA

IS

Got 2x 4,000 miles and just a bunch of other offers/discounts… TY!

Al

Only valid for U.S. residents?

Berry Stahl

4,000 AA miles

Nic

20% off FTD & one class upgrade with AVIS – other 3 spins were off the chart and received nothing 🙁

Joe

20% of FTD.com purchases. Lol

marko

“WE’RE SORRY
An error has occurred. Click the button below to get back on track.”

any tips to get it to work?

terpy

I got that in Samsung Internet browser, but when used Chrome it worked. In either case, you still get the prize. If it’s anything worthwhile (not a coupon) you’ll get an email within a few minutes about it.

elly

Did you get emails confirming your wins?

Yochai

Got 3 off the chart spins and 2 error spins

Ari

Spun 6 times, one FTD 20% off coupon, and nothing else. Sad.

Steve

4x 400 miles

Yosef

Sppined 6 times and got NOTHING . Am I a shlimazol?

m

me too maybe theyre out of prizes

Mordy

No ur not alone me 2

JW

Yeah, I just logged in for my wife and did 6 spins for her and bupkis. Earlier, when I did my three spins I got some sort of coupon each time so I assumed you always “won” something even if it seemed worthless.

John

How can I log out once I’m on the page I wana log in into my wife’s account but don’t see where I can log off?

John

Anyone can advice how to log out on the promotion page ?

Lost in Pakistan

Got an extension on my car warranty.

yelped

I could tell you’re lost. The warranty guys are from India.

HesderGuy

Does this help extend AA miles expiration?

Ivy

This is yet another Dan’s Fake Deal: My wife and I each spun six times, and every spin won nothin – zip, zero, nada. This site should be shut down, as the so-called “deals” almost never work as advertised; and the comments appear to be bogus.

Vancouver Boy

So the Site should be shut down because it didn’t work for you?

Nevermind that 70% of people here got something. Seems the first people got the better prizes.

Smh…The entitlement of some people. Its a Public random giveaway, Not a Contest for “IVY and WIFE” to for sure win.

Are you any poorer than you where yesterday now that Dan posted this?

Ben

This is too funny.

Moshe

Seriously, Ben. LOL

Muleh

Interestingly enough I found it I clicked the option to see what I won without spinning the wheel I always won something

josh

HelloWorld who is administering the prizes confirmed that there was a programming issue in the game this morning that basically gave every spin a prize – it didn’t matter where you clicked to stop the globe, it would assign a city and prize. They have since updated the game itself so that now there are a lot of no hits and there no prizes except another entry. Congrats to all the early players, and thanks Dan for another great deal.

terpy

Makes sense – seemed really off to me that in like 10 spins I won 2 x 4000 miles and an Admirals Lounge pass, plus every other spin gave one of those coupons. (Although the coupons seem relatively worthless.

Memere613

@terpy,

I’ll be glad to take the lounge passes off your hands 😉

Ivy

Yup, yet another fake deal that’s only available to the insiders.

david

Stop the hate!!!!!!

abebee

Makes sense, I was shocked that I got a $20 gift card on first spin (Thanks Dan for lunch). Now logged in with wifes account, got 40 points, 20% discount and the rest were all nothing.

yelped

Wow, thanks Dan for the quick post then!

Josh, where did you see this posted?

#1DanFan

Just a single 40miles for me. Bummer

Moshe

Beginning tomorrow, how many spins will be allow every day?

sd

wasnt there a post discussing how their are no taxes for points that couple that won the case against the irs

Expiration

I thought AA miles changed their policy to never expire?

el

looks like they are only allowing 1 spin per day now per acct (based on the 2 accounts i tried)

LeeLee18

I just tried it – 6 spins, only 1 of them won 400 miles. Better than nothing, and the fact that it will extend my miles is sweet. Thank you, Dan!!

Cook

Same here. 5/6 charted off course. One x 400. 🙂

Nirc

4 spins and nothing every time

usernamechuck

yesterday, won 400 miles on all 3 spins. today, won nothing on 3 spins. hmm

EG

Do you have to have an AA CC to participate?

elly

Did you receive email confirmations of what you’ve won? I haven’t ((

elly

Did you receive email confirmation after you’ve won?
I haven’t. ((

Caveman

I got the emails for the free miles yesterday but I didn’t get the emails for the seat upgrades (I checked spam too). Anyone else have this happen? Or does it just show up in yo account? Also would the seat upgrades work when booking with points and if so what about for WebSaver specials?

Thanks

I won 30% off hotel booking. I clicked off but never got the email about it. Any way to get the prize?

Simplicity

I got 20% FTD it’s not listed above any more info on this?

David R

I have two spins available for today, but can’t spin because the site is giving errors. When I click to spin, it takes me to https://www.aadvantage40th.com/#/error

David

Thanks Dan. I got the 2 free nights in Las Vegas + 2 x 40miles

Memere613

Nice!!

Kivi

won 4000 miles

Kivi

I won 20% off sitewide discount with FTD, 4000 miles, 10% off the base rate on weekly and weekend rentals and 2X Miles with Thrifty Car Rental. All three of these wind were not mentioned by dan.

Memere613

That’s the unfortunate draw

Memere613

Except the 4,000 – that was a good win

Meny

Anywinings it looks like they r out of prizes trying last 2 days not winning anything

Ivy

After not winning anything the first day or two, since then I’ve been winning prizes, the highest being 4.000 AAdvantage miles. Thank you, DansDeals, for making us aware of this simple and fun daily opportunity!

Mordy

1st few days I won few prizes but nothing major and haven’t been winning anything the last week

Jack

@dan how do you play 6 times a day when for me it’s only giving 2 times a day ???

Sam

The 6 times daily is only on Mondays. Otherwise it’s 2 spins per day. 1 automatically and 1 for the fact of the day.

Waterlilinyc

Thank you for clarifying, Sam! Much appreciated.

thank you dan for reminding

Looks like your journey just got more rewarding. You’re officially a winner in the AAdvantage 40th Anniversary Celebration! You’ve qualified for a one-car class upgrade and a minimum 500 base AAdvantage Miles with Avis Car Rental*. Congratulations!

Yawn

Waste of time. All I got, after playing for a few days, is a stinken 40 AA Advantage points. A totally worthless prize. It’s like giving a meshulach who comes to you for a nidava and you pull out a nickel. A terrible bizayon.

Avi2

6 spins and nothing to show for it

stfgl

I’m 0/32 on spins. Junk.

MarsTorah

a/o figure out how to land on s/t?

Binyamingavriel

-Complimentary One-Car Class Upgrade + minimum of 500 AAdvantage® Miles with Avis
-Two losses
For some reason wouldn’t let me spin again despite having spins left

Dee

How many times are we allowed to spin a day? I am only seeing two. I thought it was 6

kivi

i think only once a week you have 6 all other days its only 2

Mariusz

When you share on Tweeter or Instagram you get 1 extra spin per entire game.
