The Deals

Key Terms

  • During the “Treat Yourself Bonus” offer, which runs from 1/11/21 through 1/19/21 at 11:59:59 pm ET (the “Bonus Period”), Member will earn a one-time bonus of up to 1,000 AAdvantage miles on qualifying purchases, in addition to the standard AAdvantage miles earned from shopping online through the AAdvantage eShopping mall.
  • This one-time bonus award will be determined based on Member’s cumulative qualifying purchases made during the Bonus Period using one of the following tiers: Tier 1 bonus: 500 miles for qualifying purchases of at least $150; or Tier 2 bonus: 1,000 miles for qualifying purchases of $300 or more.
  • “Qualifying purchases” do not include returns, cancellations, shipping and handling, taxes, gift card or other cash equivalent purchases, and certain products that are not eligible for bonus miles.
  • Please see the AAdvantage eShopping mall site for details on product eligibility and other restrictions.
  • Please allow up to 10 weeks after the Bonus Period for bonus miles to post to your AAdvantage eShopping account.
  • The Tier 2 bonus provides the maximum number of miles that will be awarded.

Quick Thoughts

Both tiers on both shopping portals offer 3.33x bonus miles per dollar if spending exactly $150 or $300. That has the potential to be a good return, especially with retailers like Apple that don’t normally offer much more than 1x/1%.

As always though, be sure to compare rates on Cashback Monitor because even with the bonus miles, you might still do better shopping via a different portal.
