If we’re in a month with at least 28 days in it there’s almost bound to be an American Airlines miles sale in progress so, with the last sale having ended just ended a few days ago, it’s no surprise to see the airline back with another attempt to squeeze some money out of its flyers.
One of the few things that American Airlines has improved over the past few years is the ability to book partner awards though AA.com. There was a time (in the not too distant past) where Alaska Airlines, British Airways, and Cathay Pacific were just about the only partners whose awards could be reliably booked via the American Airlines website – now we have 17 different partner airlines to choose from on AA.com.
Towards the beginning of June American Airlines launched a mileage sale which was supposed to run through to the end of the month but, for reasons best known to the airline, the sale has been extended through to 2 August.
American Airlines has launched its latest miles sale which runs through to the end of the month and this time around it's selling its currency at the lowest rate we generally see - 1.72 cents/mile. If you're short of AAdvantage miles this is probably the time to buy as you're unlikely to find a better deal - even the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale didn't offer a price as low as this last year.

At the beginning of March the World of Hyatt Hyatt and American Airlines AAdvantage announced they would be launching a partnership that would offer members of both loyalty programs reciprocal points earning, status challenges and, for American's very top-tier elites, complimentary World of Hyatt Globalist status. At the time of the announcement there weren't too many solid details available but now we're starting to see progress.
Citi is emailing out customers with a slightly improved sign-up offer on the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Mastercard but the nature of the offer means that not everyone who's in the market for this card will want to take it up - it will suit some more than others.
In news that will surprise absolutely no one American Airlines is selling miles at a discount again and this time around the airline is offering up to 40% the standard rate to anyone prepared to buy miles in the latest promotion.
