Travel blogger Lucky recently revealed that one of his readers earned a whopping 172,261 AAdvantage miles from a single airline ticket.
How Did He Do This?
He registered for a targeted American Airlines promotion offering triple miles on paid First and Business class tickets through early July.
His company then booked him a return trip to London Heathrow during this specified period.
He’s an AAdvantage Gold member so he earned 66,623 miles for the outward journey and 105,638 miles for the return journey.
The funny thing was that he had, apparently, registered for the promo and totally forgotten about it. He remembered when he returned home and saw how many miles he had accrued.
If there is a moral to this story it is that status helps and that you should register for all mile and point promotions regardless of whether you intend to use them or not. A small change of plans could mean you hit the jackpot.
