Quick Thoughts

Sixty thousand miles for a single purchase is an outstanding offer. With increased American Airlines award availability popping up now and then in business class as of late, this offer would give you enough for a one-way business class ticket to either Europe or South America (even round trip to South America 1) or to Asia 1 (Japan / Korea). Alternatively, you could fly a route like Cairo to Tokyo on Etihad in first class for 50K American Airlines miles or fly one-way in business class to Japan on Japan Airlines (availability varies on this). That kind of bonus with no minimum spend is terrific. American certainly hasn’t been known for generous award availability over the past few years, but over the past month we’ve seen some spurts of availability. Considering the bonus doesn’t even require meeting a minimum spend but rather just a single purchase, this is the definition of low-hanging fruit. You probably won’t find domestic saver availability, but if you’re interested in international travel this is worth a look.

Cairo to Abu Dhabi to Tokyo was a lot of flying in Etihad first class – and it’s just 50K AA miles.
