Just as Alaska Airlines announced yesterday, American Airlines has now launched a “Mystery Bonus” offer for shopping through the AAdvantage eShopping portal. My “mystery bonus” was 500 miles for $125 in purchases and I expect that is the standard offer here. Note that the dates overlap some but are not the same as the Alaska bonus.

Quick Thoughts

Just the same as the Alaska bonus yesterday, this might be worth it if you’re already making a purchase anyway, but 500 miles wouldn’t entice me to look for a purchase to make. Just keep in mind when you’re comparing portal payouts that this works out to an extra 4x miles if you make purchases totaling exactly $125.
