When is it ever valuable to purchase AA Mileage Multiplier?
When does it ever make sense to purchase the “mileage multiplier” option after buying a ticket on AA? I’m talking about the little section at the bottom of your booking on AA.com where you can basically buy additional miles on top of the ones you’d normally earn for flying.
Example: on the ticket I just bought, the offer is to buy 11,869 miles for USD $385. That’s a price of 3.2 cents / mile.
On the other hand, I can just flip over to the “Buy, gift, and share miles” section of AA, and purchase 16,500 miles for USD $383.50. That’s a price of 2.3 cents / mile.
So obviously I won’t be doing this….. BUT, has anyone ever experienced a decent offer on this? Every single time I buy a ticket it’s a horrible offer compared to the regular old “buy miles” section.
It seems like AA is just trying to get passengers that don’t know any better….
