Just a quick update to say that if you got the American Airlines credit card with the amazing (given the card is free) 35,000 American Airlines miles sign-up bonus, your miles should post OK.
My first statement month just ended. I spent the necessary £5,000 to trigger the full bonus by pre-paying my July tax bill.
And my statement shows (with a minor edit for privacy):
AADVANTAGE MILES SUMMARY
AMEX MILES | 836
VISA MILES | 3,264
BONUS MILES | 35,000
ADJUSTED MILES | 0
TOTAL MILES | 39,100
Which is nice.
Hopefully they will arrive safely at my AA account over the next day or so.
The card is still open for applications for this bonus until 31st May. Remember that you need to spend £5,000 within 6 months to trigger the full bonus, though.
Now I need to hope that award space opens up for a New York to London day in July. I am currently booked on BA via Avios with a chunky taxes bill, whilst an AA rebooking would see the taxes fall to almost nothing.
