American Airlines is out with a nice bonus on signing up for a Sam’s Club membership. As a member with no AA status, I received the following offer via email:

We often see deals for Sam’s Club membership in different forms — whether they be via Groupon, extra coupons/gift cards, etc. It’s nice to see a mileage bonus for those who value the miles over the rotisserie chicken. Whether or not this is a deal will likely depend on how you use the miles. According to Michael W Travels, the offer is not valid for those who were members less than six months prior to 10/1/16. Though I did not see that in the terms or the email, you may want to check carefully if you had a membership within the last year or so. To register for this bonus, click here and enter your AAdvantage number and then join.
