DirecTV Upgrades Sign Up Bonus: Earn 12,500 AAdvantage Miles

Here’s an offer that keeps getting better.  Earlier this year, DirecTV was offering 7,500 AAdvantage Miles to new customers, this spring they upped it to 10,000 AAdvantage Miles, and now, just in time for football season, they’re offering 12,5000 miles when you sign up for their satellite television service:

As an American Airlines AAdvantage member, you have access to this exclusive offer: sign up for DIRECTV and earn 12,500 AAdvantage miles. That’s enough for a one-way MileSAAver award! When you order the fully loaded DIRECTV, you’ll get 210 All-Digital Channels and 43 Premium Movie Channels, plus 3 FREE months of HBO, STARZ, SHOWTIME, and Cinemax — it’s our best offer ever! Plus, you’ll get NFL SUNDAY TICKET included at no extra charge for a limited time only. That means you get every game, every Sunday from outside your local area.

This offer is only available to new customers. Go here for more info or here to sign up for this offer.


  1. Any idea if you can bump the bonus? I just got the smaller one last week. Who would I contact, DirecTV or AA?

    • The offer is from DirecTV, so I would contact their customer service and speak with them. Check your agreement, but I believe that when I signed up for service (many, many years ago) I had the option to cancel within 30 days. You may also have that option, and if so, that should provide you with the leverage to get them to honor the higher AAdvantage bonus.

  2. I’m an existing customer and have been for almost three years, plus a regular American Airlines AAdvantage customer. There’s no way that I can get this offer for either being a steady customer or recommitting?
