Has long been a fan of AA, the reason for this is because in the United States Air Division, for the AA to know first, and second, because the three closest to where I live is the hub of the shipping Division AA Lair of DFW, third, AA partner are like Cathay, JAL's high quality aviation Division.Nature also have a soft spot for AA.Today chanye explain things about AA mileage, if not comprehensive, please forgive me.
Flight to save
American Airlines (AA) is the present of the United States Division of three traditional airlines (AA,UA,DL), the only one still flying from the accumulated bonus.At this point, all under the same circumstances, than to get AA tickets UA/DL tickets in return for more.
For example, all three PVG-LAX operated lines, ticket fares to winter holiday, for example:
If American Airlines (AA) (AA mileage cumulative table), then a trip mileage to and from today 6485*2*100%=12970 miles (as no senior discount economy class frequent-flier level meter).
If United Airlines (UA) (cumulative table of UA mileage), then a trip mileage to and from today only 837*5=4185miles (no senior frequent-flier level gauge) or 837*11=9207miles miles (UA frequent fliers at the highest level "Primier 1K").
If Delta (DL) (DL miles accumulated table), then a trip mileage to and from today only 874*5=4370miles (no senior frequent-flier level gauge) or 874*11=9614miles miles (DL frequent flyer at the highest level "Diamond Medallion").
Of course, if today is a partner, AA,UA,DL are calculated according to the flight distance, specific percentage involve partners cumulative rate need not be discussed here.With specific regard to AA, you can see the AA partner today.
As you can see, no matter what level you are, take the AA can give you the highest return on miles, 12970miles enough for United States territory of one-way tickets, and for DL or UA, is thus far.
Car rental save point
American Airlines (AA) at present there are 12 car rental partners, including three major car rental group Avis/Budget,Enterprise/National/Alamo,Hertz/Thrifty/Dollar, as well as other companies such as Sixt.
See: AA car rental partners
Car rental you can save points may differ.But in General, this will not be the main source of mileage, but to avoid the mileage expiration, is a good choice.
Shopping rebates network (Portal)
AA official shopping rebates network at present (Aadvantage eShopping), use method and eBates cash back the same, specific to our website, please refer to the ymlulu article (cash back rebate network–online shopping tool to save money), will introduce no more here.Just in General, the AA percentage of rebates rebates network compared with other traditional cashback is lower (if AA miles on the actual value remains the same), but did not rule out sometimes promotional activities have a higher return, and it's also a good way to avoid the mileage expiration.
Dinner and save network
As with other major airlines, AA also had cooperation with Reward Network, provide members with a participating restaurant, and use your own credit card registered to get AA miles way.Specific reference (Aadvantage Dining).
As above, this way to save some, amount varies, but generally will not be too much.Similarly, it is also a good way to avoid the mileage expiration.
In addition, reward network often have activities, there will be similar to win 1000 kilometers of new Member consumption 40 cutter, consuming 10 times 10K mileage rewards, if received, participation is also good.
People who believe in this blog, AA mileage in the account credit card rewards are the main sources.
At present, the AA is mainly with the Citi credit card, and US Airways and Barclays have left over from the era of credit cards.
Barclays jointly with AA card, please refer to the ymlulu article (Barclays Aviator series (Basic/Blue/Red/Sliver)–US Airways song)
Citi and the AA signed cards from highest to lowest are Executive, Platinum Select, Gold, and Bronze.
Executive has had open when card 100k miles, the current opening only 75k miles, 450 knife and first year annual fee not
Platinum Select see the ymlulu article (Citi AAdvantage mileage card, Platinum–province) and is currently opening 50k mileage, annual fee of 95, the first year is free.
Gold, opening 25k miles, 30k rewards deal period, annual fee of 50, the first year is free.
Bronze, no annual fee, generally only as degraded reserve credit records.
At present, the more mainstream turn AA mileage only SPG points, Citi TYP to the AA as a turning-point in future partners (I also hope …）。
SPG, in simple terms, when you go when AA, SPG at every point can be converted to an AA points.Each Exchange 20,000 SPG points, SPG SPG points and bonus 5,000 points the corresponding mileage points that can be exchanged (for AA is 5,000 points).Moment that SPG had AA a 20,000 point bonus of 5,000 points activities, so that the total is 20kSPG s 30kAA, is the most cost-effective way of AA so far collected points.
And applying for SPG limited 30K of reward, not to be missed, refer to the ymlulu article "30k the highest reward to reproduce" the AMEX Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG)–I was Queen of the wild
With specific regard to SPG points, please see the ymlulu article SPG points (Starpoints) user guide
AA mileage accumulated way seems a lot, but a lot of today, only flying as well as credit cards.
For flight, quick way to save then had to call a mileage run, relying on long-range transit flights as well as the relatively low ticket price to get more than the face value of the mileage points, this involves a lot of technical problems, not do too much to discuss here.
For credit cards, mainly in two ways, opening and daily consumption or manufacture consumption (MS), also do not do too much to discuss here.
Attention through AA mileage accumulated, the next article will focus on AA mileage Exchange.
