  1. I did this for my account and it asked for my AAdvantage number. When I went to do it for my wife’s account, it kept defaulting to my account number so I had to clear the cookies. That worked, but it still did not ask for her account number!

    I received a confirmation email saying: “You earned 1,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles toward your trip to ****Y46 by watching the videos.” (****Y46 is my account number.)

    My wife’s email confirmation just said: “You earned 1,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles toward your trip by watching the videos.” (No account number referenced anywhere in the email.)

    Hmmm. How can I know the points will actually be credited to her account? Anyone else encounter this?

    • Same situation. Had to use a different computer for wife’s account. I also tried clearing cache & cookies. I think it tracks your computer address (whatever it’s called, POP3, ISN, XYZ???).

      I guess it’s off to the library to get two kids the 1000 credit!!! Ha! The things we do for miles!
