|Update: At least on my end, miles from the SimplyMiles promotion have now fully posted to my American AAdvantage account. I had some miles post just over 24 hours ago, and then the remainder of the miles posted overnight. I’d appreciate any data points from OMAAT readers as to whether others have had all miles post as well. Congrats to those who got in on the deal. You can find the original post from December 17 below.|
There’s a positive update regarding the SimplyMiles promotion that I first wrote about over the weekend, which caused me to (attempt to?) purchase millions of miles. This was an opportunity to buy AAdvantage miles for as little as 0.42 cents each, which is an astonishingly good value, all while donating to a great cause.
American Airlines has confirmed that the SimplyMiles promotion will be honored for those who made purchases prior to 10AM CT on Tuesday (when the site was taken down, and an updated banner was put up). As noted by View from the Wing, a spokesperson said:
We are pleased to credit AAdvantage accounts with miles for those customers who activated the SimplyMiles 5X promotion and made purchases and donations by 10 a.m. CT on Tuesday, December 14, 2021. We are excited that members are able to use the SimplyMiles platform to earn AAdvantage miles on every day purchases.
Congrats to all of those who got in on the deal! Not only was this the miles & points deal of the year, but I’d argue that this might just be the best deal we’ve seen honored in the past 10 years.
