Earn 1.5k-5k AA miles for joining Sam’s Club

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:

AA Sams Club

The Deal:

Earn miles as follows for joining at the various membership tiers depending on your status with AA:

Sam’s Club Savings or Business Membership ($45)

  • 1,500 miles for members with no AA status
  • 2,000 miles for those with Gold & Platinum status
  • 2,500 miles for those with Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum & Concierge Key status

Sam’s Club Plus Membership ($100)

  • 3,000 miles for members with no AA status
  • 4,000 miles for those with Gold & Platinum status
  • 5,000 miles for those with Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum & Concierge Key status

That’s Sam’s Club calling the “Plus” membership the best value, not me. Which is the best value is up to you.

Key Terms:

  • This offer is open to new members only
  • Not valid for those with a current membership
  • Miles may be rescinded if membership is canceled within 90 days of activation.
  • See full terms here.

Quick thoughts:

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.
