I’m back from Montreal, trying to adjust back to the 100 plus degree heat here in Dallas and get caught up on all the AAdvantage news. Looks like I didn’t miss too much last week but there were still a few interesting news items:
How about this offer I read about on View from the Wing: earn more than 83,000 AAdvantage Miles for less than $5. Well, for a few days last week there was an offer on the AAdvantage eShopping website of 83,387 miles from Verizon Wireless for purchasing a $4.96 Palm charging dock. Does it sound too good to be true? Well maybe and it looks like neither AAdvantage eShopping or Verizon will honor it, but so far nothing official from either. Check out the whole story here.
Here’s another AAvantage eShopping offer that’s either a really great offer or too good to be true: Earn 2,515 free miles for registering with SitterCity.com. Daraius over at MillionMileSecrets.com has it covered, read all about it here.
Also over at View from the Wing: Option to transfer from AAdvantage to Hilton HHonors ending soon. It seems that now that you can use your miles to book hotels the option to convert them into hotel points is going away. It’s not too late though to transfer some miles to our favorite hotel program using a “backdoor” method that you can also read about here.
