American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping is offering a higher-than-usual 6x for purchases at Apple.com today (Thursday, May 16th), though note the exclusions in the key terms below.
- Earn 6x miles per $1 at Apple.com through the American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping portal
- Direct link to this promotion
- Note that the AAdvantage portal notes that: “Newly released products may not be eligible.”. I think it’s anybody’s guess as to exactly what that means.
- Full terms:
- Please note these terms & conditions: Rewards are issued by this site, not Apple. Newly released products may not be eligible. Additional products not eligible are: gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, and expedited shipping. Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible. Employee Purchase Plan sites are not eligible. EPP purchases are not eligible. Apple Developer Programs are not eligible. Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site. Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents.
This is a decent paqout for Apple products and could be especially useful if you’re planning to make a larger purchase. Looking over the 15-month historical rates at CashBackMonitor.com, we can see that rates rarely eclipse this level. Near the top of the page, the portal suggests that this should work on the iPhone X, which would pull down a nice haul of miles — and as I posted about this morning, i think AA miles are far from worthless in my estimation. If you’re a frequent buyer, you might get tripped up on volume as well (see the terms above).
If you have a different preferred airline, you may just want to keep an eye out over the coming days as other airlines sometimes follow suit on promotions like this one, though we certainly don’t know what to be the case here.
