One Day Left to Buy AAdvantage Miles with a 50,000-Mile Bonus

Last month, American Airlines launched a promotion that nets you up to 50,000 bonus miles when you buy AAdvantage miles. Unfortunately, that deal expires tomorrow, Friday, June 12, so if you want to buy AAdvantage miles for as little as 2.06 cents each, now’s the time to do it! Also, to celebrate TPG’s 5th anniversary (and to take advantage of this promotion), we’re purchasing 150,000 AAdvantage miles for one lucky reader — enter by 9am ET tomorrow to win.

This time around, AA’s not offering a percentage bonus — instead, you’ll earn additional miles based on six different brackets. To maximize your return, you’ll want to purchase the minimum number of miles required within each of the tiers below:

You can also boost your balance using the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Mastercard, which is currently offering 30,000 bonus miles after $1,000 in purchases within the first three months of card membership — the annual fee is waived for the first year. So if you’re looking to stock up on miles, you might want to apply for this card as well.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this offer — and if so, what redemptions do you have in mind?
