By | Posted:

If you’re in the market for a fancy gadget, don’t miss out on the chance to earn a LOT of bonus airline miles today!

Through the end of the day today, July 26, 2018, you can earn 5X American Airlines miles on Apple purchases.  And if you’re a Citi American Airlines cardholder, there’s the potential to earn even more bonus miles!

Today’s the Day to Buy That New iPad or Apple Watch, Because You Can Earn Loads of Extra American Airlines for Your Purchase!

Here’s what you need to know.

Earn Bonus American Airlines Miles at Apple

Today only, July 26, 2018, the American Airlines shopping portal is offering 5X American Airlines miles per $1 spent at Apple.  The normal bonus is just 1 American Airlines mile per $1.  So that’s a big increase!

Depending on what you’re looking to buy, this could be a great way to bulk up your American Airlines miles balance.

For example, say you’re buying your kid a new computer for college.  A nice Macbook Pro can easily go for ~$2,400.  With this deal, you’d earn ~12,000 American Airlines miles for your purchase!

That’s more than enough miles for a one-way Saver award within the US under 500 miles, like between Charlotte and Washington, DC.  Those award tickets cost just 7,500 American Airlines miles.

In addition to that, if you use a Citi American Airlines card, you’ll earn another 1 American Airlines mile per $1.  For a total of 6 American Airlines miles per $1!  And if you’re targeted, there’s the opportunity to earn even more bonus miles!

I have the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® and received this offer (via email and snail mail) a couple of days ago:

Check Your Email and Snail Mail to See If You Were Targeted!

To take AAdvantage of the targeted deal, you need to register your card by August 31, 2018, to earn 3 American Airlines miles per $1 spent at computer & electronics stores (like Apple!).  You can earn up to 2,500 bonus miles on eligible purchases made through September 30, 2018.

That’s a pretty great deal for a purchase you were planning on making anyway!
