40th Anniversary Celebration Promotion

You can enter the promotion daily and the promotion ends on May 3rd.

AAdvantage miles expired without activity in 18 months. “Just earn or redeem miles on American or with an AAdvantage partner at least once every 18 months. We’ll automatically extend your mileage expiration date 18 months from the date of your most recent activity.”


  1. It won’t let me log in, wife neither. Does not recognize our credentials even with different browsers. If you have any helpful suggestions that would be nice……

  2. @JRG – okay interesting. I had trouble as well and reset my AA password and then it worked fine but I figured I had just forgotten my password

  3. On my third spin, yesterday, I “won” a 15% discount on SimpliSafe. #awesome. It tells me I can return every day for more fun but it won’t let me log in again today. I can’t wait to see what I “win” next.

    Oh, and if you make a comment on the Awardwallet blog you’ll earn 5 AA miles which will keep them alive.

  4. Boy, doncha hate it when a blog post about a contest doesn’t include a link to the contest…?
