American has launched several new routes and (just as they often do) they’re offering bonus AAdvantage miles to promote them. But this time they’ve made the offer a little sweeter.

Typically when they start new service between two cities they’ll offer double redeemable miles, but with these latest promotions they’re doing something new and offering double miles for main cabin fares, and triple miles for paid first class travel.

Round-trip travel between SAN and MIA earns 4,534 base miles, so this is probably the offer that will most tempt mileage runners.

There are some sub $400 main cabin fares available for late Summer travel, and the lowest first class fare range between $1,000 and $1,100 much of the Summer.

If you’re a mileage runner that’s focused purely on Elite Qualifying Miles, then this offer probably won’t appeal to you: at best you’re paying nearly 7.72 cents per EQM. But if you’re looking to earn some elite miles and also earn a lot of redeemable miles, then depending upon your status level and fare, you can earn earn almost enough miles for a round-trip domestic ticket, or bring down your cost per mile to about 2.57 cents per mile.

  • American offering double miles on new route between Miami and San Diego through September 15, 2013 - One Mile at a Time said,

    […] (Tip of the hat to AAdvantageGeek) […]

  • Becca said,

    Do these need to be standalone round trip tickets or can they just be segments in a bigger itinerary?

  • aadvantagegeek said,

    @ Becca – The bonus is award per segment, so you don’t have to fly round trip to qualify.

    Also, since it’s per segment, the bonus applies even if you’re connecting to another flight (for example, you’ll earn the extra miles between San Diego and Miami if you travel San Diego – Miami – Key West). The only requirement is that travel has to be non-stop on the qualifying segment between the two bonus cities (so San Diego – DFW – Miami wouldn’t count).

    Thanks for the comment!
