500 American Airlines miles for selling your soul (or something)

If you’ve got an American Airlines AAdvantage account, you can earn 500 easy AA miles by updating your personal details at this website.

The deadline for completing it is February 28th.

However …. read the small print before you do it.  You are basically giving American Airlines and their marketing partner permission to sell your personal information to every Tom, Dick and Harry they can find.  You cannot opt out of this.

Personally, I am not so desperate for 500 AA miles to do this.  You might be, though!

  1. The “Last four characters of National ID:” would seem to be “l ID”

  2. You can put in a fake email so that you don’t get bombarded, then go into your AAdvantage account and change it back again

  3. stoneman, I don’t think that would work, because at the time they sell your info or start a mass marketing mail campaign, they will use your most current email address, which at that time will be most likely your real one.

      But I will have no need to change my email addy until I want to book a flight with them, which could be a year or so away.
