American Airlines-Award Redemption
What is the cash value of 44,000 points/miles?
It depends on how you [URL=’http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/value-miles-points/’]value your miles[/URL].
Lucky values AAdvantage miles at 1.5 cents per mile, so 44k is $660. However, if you were to [I]buy[/I] 44k AAdvantage miles from American, it’ll cost you $1425, after taxes and fees and without any kind of bonus since there are none at the moment.
Then, in terms of redemptions, you can redeem for a oneway ticket to Hawaii or South America Region 1 in business class, instead of paying cash. Value will then depend on what the cost of the cash ticket was.
