The World of Hyatt is currently sending out emails to targeted members with an offer of three AAdvantage Miles per dollar on all Hyatt stays through the end of the year. Considering this offer will stack (very nicely) with the upcoming promotion in which WoH members can earn up to four times the usual number of base points, this is an incredibly generous offer to receive.
American Airlines has come up with another promotion for anyone interesting in buying its currency and in this promotion the airline is selling miles at approximately 1.82 cents each. The promotion runs through the end of the month so there's no big hurry to dive in (do your research) but it's worth noting this is one of the cheaper rates at which the airline offers AAdvantage Miles.
American Airlines is currently running a targeted promotion in which it's offering a very specific kind of elite bonus - the airline will give targeted flyers double the usual number of miles towards lifetime elite status for flights taken by the end of the year.
American Airlines has launched a new mileage sale for July in which it is offering discounts of between 10% and 45%. There's nothing majorly complicated about this sale as for once, this is an AAdvantage sale in which the more miles you buy the cheaper the cost per mile becomes.
Up until 2011, all miles earned through credit card spending counted towards American Airlines Million Miler status while the miles earned from the Citi AAdvantage Executive Card counted through 2012. Since then, only miles earned by flying (better known as "butt-in-seat" miles) have qualified to move the needle in the Million Miler program...until now.
Every now and again American Airlines offers a bonus for converting hotel points into AAdvantage Miles, and right now there's a promotion running in which anyone with a World of Hyatt balance can transfer their points into the AAdvantage program and receive a 25% bonus on top of the points that are normally on offer. For most people, this remains a less than tempting proposition but it may still be useful for some.
Around the beginning of this month, American Airlines launched the best mileage sale I've ever seen the airline offer and I was sorely tempted to dive in and load up (I didn't). Now, just days after the last sale ended, American is back with another sale and I'm here to suggest you stay well away.
American Airlines has now joined Delta, United and Alaska Airlines in announcing status extensions for its elite members and, just like its competitors, American used the status extension announcement to reveal a few more moves that it's taking. From a customer perspective, some are good, some are bad and some are utterly pointless.
Back in 2017 American Airlines and Alaska Airlines announced some significant negative changes to their partnership and it was only October last year that American Airlines removed Alaska Airlines from its list of award partners...but that was then and this is now.
Now that American and Alaska are playing nicely together again both airlines are offering significantly improved reciprocal mileage earnings on each other's flights - flyers can now earn and redeem Alaska miles on all American Airlines flights and they can earn and redeem American Airlines AAdvantage miles on all Alaska Airlines flights.
