The AAdvantage eShopping Mall launched with a new redesign last week and it’s a big improvement over the previous version. Everything is a little easier to find and there a several new improvements that make it easier to shop, but my favorite new feature is that I don’t have to log in every time I visit the site.
The old site used make you log back in after something like 10 minutes of inactivity, with the new site, once you authenticate it keeps you logged in until you sign out.
Here’s a look at some of the new features:
Nice design. The website no longer looks like 1998.
Easier to use shop by category function.
It’s always been possible to shop at local retailers and earn miles, now it’s easier to find them. Find local retailers by category
Find local retailers (detail).
There’s also a new AAdvantage eShopping Assistant that’s will earn you some extra miles by searching and shopping. When you visit a participating AAdvantage eShopping retailer the toolbar will let you know if you can earn miles, discounts, or free shipping. You can also earn up to 100 AAdvantage Miles when you use the toolbar to search.
