Aadvantage – buying miles – next offer ?

  1. Newb


    I’ve managed to use some inherited AA miles to get my family of 6 into 1st class LHR to SYD on QF in December 2016* and will need to buy about 250-400k extra miles (across multiple accounts if need be) to book return legs approx 1st – 6th January 2017, so the booking window via AA opens just after the current offer (buy 100k miles, get 50k bonus) ends.

    250-400k miles is a lot of $: any ideas what offers on buying miles AA might have lined up after the current offer ends ?

    I am kicking myself for not buying before the previous offer ended (buy 150k, get 115k bonus)…..

    [USER=1437]@Newb[/USER] — Enroll in the Alaska program as well. They can also redeem on Cathay Pacific through Hong Kong, and may have a better upcoming promotion. Unfortunately there’s no way to know ahead of time.

    Thanks – will do. I also have some points with Virgin, and could use those with Air NZ or Singapore to get a couple of us back to London.
