Up To 30,000 American Miles To Fly To Asia

I wanted to do a more extensive piece today, but I’m operating on sleep deprivation, so it will have to wait. For now, let’s talk about a bonus opportunity on American Airlines

Earn up to 30,000 American AAdvantage Miles


The promotion might be a bit on the expensive side, but it’s easy enough to earn the miles once you have bought your tickets. You must register first and fly to one of the listed cities, and then you’ll earn miles based on your class of service. Hey, you pay the big bucks, you get the bonus miles. The registration code is ASM17.

Terms And Conditions


There’s a reason it says UP TO. It’s not easy.

Let’s take a look at the Terms and Conditions:

AAdvantage® bonus mileage offer is only valid for travel on American Airlines marketed nonstop flights (operated by either American Airlines or Japan Airlines) between Los Angeles (LAX) and Shanghai (PVG), Hong Kong (HKG), Tokyo Narita (NRT), Tokyo Haneda (HND) or Osaka (KIX); Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Beijing (PEK) or Shanghai (PVG); Chicago (ORD) and Beijing (PEK) or Shanghai (PVG); New York Kennedy (JFK) and Tokyo Narita (NRT). Flights marketed and or operated by other codeshare partners are not eligible for this promotion.

Offer applies only to AAdvantage® members who receive an email from American Airlines and register, purchase and fly on eligible published-fare tickets between March 30, 2017, and May 31, 2017. Tickets purchased before March 30, 2017 or after May 31, 2017 are not eligible to earn bonus miles for this promotion.

Includes First Class fares booked in F or A; Business Class fares booked in J, R, D or I; Full-Fare or Premium Economy Class fares booked in Y or W; Select Economy Class fares booked in H, K, M, L, V, G, Q, N, O or S on American marketed flights.

Bonus miles will be calculated and awarded based on the booking class purchased and the number of trips taken in a specific cabin. Bonus miles can only be earned for a maximum of 2 round trips and half the round-trip bonus will be posted after each eligible one-way segment. Bonus miles do not count toward elite status qualification or AAdvantage® Million Miler status. Registration prior to travel is required using Promotion Code ASM17 at

There are a few restrictions. You can fly codeshares on JAL, but that’s it for carriers other than American. Also, the full 30,000 miles requires two First Class paid tickets. Ouch.
