A couple weeks ago I wrote about an incredible deal from online retailer eBags- 35 American Airlines miles per dollar spent. I value AA miles at 2 cents a piece conservatively, so that’s like getting 70% back for every purchase- plus you actually get the merchandise.

I went a little crazy and have quite the windfall of miles en route and I’m very glad that eBags is honoring this deal. In fact, I ordered so much that they actually called me and verified that I would receive the merchandise as long as I agreed to their rules of no re-selling. This was fine, because I have other, more charitable causes in mind. I’m still working out the details, but stay tuned for my plan of action!

To check to see if your miles are processing correctly, go to aadvantageeshopping.com and click the “My AAdvantage Eshopping Account” button in the top right.
AAdvantage Eshopping eBagsThe main tab is a “Recent transactions” tab, which should list your eBags purchase. If not, I would reach out to eBags customer service to make sure that your order qualified for the 35x promotion.

The miles should post to your AA account within a couple weeks.

So how many miles did you score through this promo? What do you plan to do with your miles?
