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. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

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!).
