American Airlines is offering 1,000 free American AAdvantage miles for watching six short videos about the wonders of the AA loyalty programme.
As well as boosting your balance, it will have the added benefit of resetting the expiry date of your miles by another 18 months.
It is quick and easy.
You need to watch six short videos about American Airlines. At the end of each video is a question to answer. The questions are incredibly easy so there is no need to watch the video – simply fast forward to the last 5 seconds.
It shouldn’t take more than two minutes to work though them.
There is also a related competition but this is not open to UK residents. There does not appear to be any geographic restriction on claiming your free 1,000 miles.
They do not post immediately so do not go rushing off to your AA account to check.
How to earn American Airlines miles from UK credit cards (June 2022)
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 comes with 20,000 points for signing up and 2 points for every £1 you spend.
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.
