Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like American has turned into one of the most prolific mileage sellers since the merger with US Airways. I suppose that shouldn’t be a surprise since US Airways was one of the industry’s most prolific sellers of miles. American is back with another mileage sale special. Buy or gift miles now through July 8th, save 10 percent, and earn up to 100,000 bonus miles.
Should You Buy Advantage Miles? (Or Any Airline’s Miles)
I have, on select few occasions (I can count them on one hand), purchased miles. Those “select few occasions” have one thing in common. I had a specific award in mind, and needed some miles to top up my account. I have seen some mileage “sales” from time to time that might be worth considering, but generally, I’d stick to only buying miles if I had a very specific need and a short timeframe to work with to get the award I wanted. YMMV.
