In March American AAdvantage launched an award map that tells you where you can go with your miles. It is a nifty little tool, though I honestly haven’t used it since first taking it for a testdrive.
AA 2500 mile award rebate

Anywho, they are running a promotion to advertise the tool and are giving away a bunch of miles and some grand prizes. But the key thing is- everyone is a winner! Even if you don’t win a grand prize, you’ll get a voucher worth 2,500 off your next award redemption:

“Unfortunately, you didn’t win the daily prize, but you have earned 2,500 miles back on your next flight redemption. Use the Award Map to book a flight with your AAdvantage® miles for travel between September 4 and November 20, to earn 2,500 miles back.* Come back tomorrow for another chance to win 25,000 miles”

-You must book your flight between 6/26/13 and 7/24/13, and travel between 9/4/13 and 11/20/13. Please allow 6-8 weeks for the 2,500 miles to be credited back to your account.

-Members will receive 2,500 miles off flight award redemption for AA and partner flights.

-Award itinerary must be booked online on

-Each AAdvantage member account is only eligible for one rebate during this promo.

-Please allow for 6-8 weeks for miles to be posted to your account, after travel occurs.

-Miles will be credited to the AAdvantage member account from which the redemption occurs.

I like how partner flights are included, though the booking limits the number of partners you can use for this promo. This will also stack with the Citi AA personal card 10% rebate on mileage redemptions (up to 10,000 miles a year). With both promotions, a 40,000 mile offpeak award to Europe would end up costing you 33,500 miles (though remember you need to travel by 11/20/13 for the rebate to work, which drastically cuts down on the off-peak window).

You might as well sign-up even if you don’t plan to book an award- you never know what might come up!

    Will this work with Avios as well?

  • thepointsguy

    No- just AA redemptions (though you can redeem for British airways flights and get the rebate as long as its booked online)

  • sfobuddy

    So we can’t use this for International travel?

  • thepointsguy

    Where does it say that?

  • Bill

    Cant figure out on the site if I can send you information.

    Just got an email that Hawaiian airlines is expanding their program to include redeeming on AA flights.

    Just a heads up. Another option for using amex points towards round trip AA rewards. Start at 30k hawaiian airline miles for a roundtrip american flight.

    Can this be stacked onto the reduce mileage awards? 17.5k would equal 15k?

    Detailed T&C on this states that the 2500 mile refund applies only to award tickets booked fully using the new map tool.. at least the map lets you choose one way as an option!

  • Sir Jim

    Can I transfer AMEX points or AVIOS to AA rewards?
