Day 5: American Airlines 30 Deals – Purchase AA Miles for a 30% Discount

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

The American Airlines 30 Deals a Day promotion on April 22 is a 30% discount on all AA mile purchases. With American Airlines already advertising a 20% discount on all purchases, this isn’t anything great, but still a deal if you were already planning on purchasing points.

Purchases must be made through the buyAAmiles program beginning 12:00 am CST April 22, 2011, through 11:59 pm CST April 24, 2011.  The discount applies only to the mileage price and not the additional taxes and fees ($30.00 per transaction).  The maximum amount of miles that can be purchased per account is 40,000 miles each calendar year.

To purchase 40,000 miles will cost you $730.00 ($700 for the mileage and $30 transaction fee). 40,000 miles can be redeemed for an off peak ticket to Europe, where typically you can purchase a flight for less than $730 off peak (and then still earn miles on your trip!).
