American Airlines is the latest airline to partner with HolidayCheck to offer airline miles in return for reviewing hotels on their website. It seems that, in an attempt to compete with TripAdvisor, HolidayCheck needs to offer generous incentives to get you to review.
You will earn 70 American Airlines AAdvantage miles for every review you post on HolidayCheck.
Other airlines also let you earn miles via HolidayCheck. These are:
Miles & More (100 miles per review)
airberlin topbonus (150 miles per review)
airBaltic PINS (150 miles per review)
Etihad Guest (150 miles per review)
There is a cap of 10 reviews per month and you are allowed to backdate reviews for stays up to 24 months ago.
Whilst 70 American Airlines miles may not sound like a lot, it is enough to stop your miles expiring. One quick review every 18 months will keep your AA account in good health.
How to earn American Airlines miles from UK credit cards (July 2021)
American Airlines no longer has its own UK credit card.
There is, however, still a way to earn American Airlines miles from a UK credit card.
The route is via Marriott Bonvoy. Marriott Bonvoy hotel loyalty points convert to American Airlines miles at the rate of 3:1. You receive an additional 5,000 miles bonus if you convert 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points at once.
The best way to earn Marriott Bonvoy points is via the official Marriott Bonvoy American Express card. It usually comes with 20,000 points for signing up and 2 points for every £1 you spend.
Until 31st August 2021, however, the sign-up bonus is increased to 40,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.
At 2 Bonvoy points per £1, you are earning (at 3:1) 0.66 American Airlines miles per £1 spent on the card. This will increase to 0.83 AA miles per £1 if you convert Bonvoy points in chunks of 60,000 points.
