I mentioned this the other day, but while I was on vacation American kicked off a new promotion to raise miles and awareness for the American Airlines Kid in Need Program. From the AAdvantage Facebook page:
Our Smile Meter fills up when you register and share – one smile for registering and up to two smiles for sharing. Each smile equals one AAdvantage mile donated. As the Smile Meter fills up, each goal met triggers a sweepstakes give-away and a donation of up to 100,000 AAdvantage miles!
It’s easy – simply register to automatically earn 100 AAdvantage miles and be entered for a chance to win up to 100,000 AAdvantage miles!
So if you haven’t participated yet, go here to help out and claim your 100 free AAdvantage Miles.
American reports that last year AAdvantage members donated almost 117 million of their unused AAdvantage miles. These miles helped hundreds of children’s organizations and have also been used to provide air transportation to nearly 300 critically ill children, and their parents/guardians, in need of medical treatment.
So to bring attention to a good cause, I’m donating 1,000 AAdvantage Miles to the Miles for Kids program and giving away 1,000 miles to one reader.
To enter all you have to do is look at this list of some of the organizations that benefit from the Miles for Kids program and post their name and something about them in the comments section.
I’ll have a random drawing on Monday. One entry per person. The deadline to enter is Sunday, July 1 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.
Speaking for reader giveaways, The Weekly Flyer over at Points, Miles & Martinis has a guide to my favorite summer destination – Montreal. He’s got some great tips for visiting the city and he’s asking reader’s to share their own. He’s also giving away a great prize:
We are giving away a Hyatt Platinum Extra to one lucky reader who shares their favorite thing to do in Montreal. The winner will receive one Hyatt Platinum Extra certificate good for (1) Complimentary food & beverage, or (2) 1,000 Bonus Hyatt points, or (3) Regency Club upgrade or (4) complimentary beverage at Hyatt Place and Summerfield suites.
My favorite thing to do in Montreal is enjoy the summer weather! Go here to read his post, share your tip and enter his promotion.
Hope you have a great weekend!
