2,500 AA Miles Netflix Offer Ending November 14

Via View From The Wing, it looks like American Airlines is ending its relationship with Netflix on November 14, 2012.

If you haven’t done so already, I’d highly recommend getting in on this offer.

For $8, you get 2,500 AA Miles, which means it only costs .032 Cents Per Mile!

I got in on this offer in April 2012, and got 3,000 AA miles for $8. Talked about it here. Once I had the miles, it pushed me past the 12,500 AA Miles mark, so thanks to Netflix I got a free AA One Way in the US.

Last month I did the United Netflix offer for 4,000 miles for $8, which is still available. United is really fast about posting the Netflix Miles. It only took a week. AA on the other hand takes about a month. However, you can cancel your Netflix subscription before the start of the 2nd month and still get your miles.

Since AwardWallet can’t track AA Miles anymore, I logged into my Dad’s account to see his balance and he is at 12,118 AA Miles or 482 AA Miles short of a Free One Way.

Normally in situations like this, people find out they are short 482 Miles when they go to book an Award Ticket. In that case, they have to buy the miles from AA.

In my Dad’s case, if he need those 482 Miles, because AA only sells Miles in increments of 1,000, he would have to pay $29.95. That is not terrible, but I still think $8 is better.

As for the 2,500 Miles you earn from this Netflix promotion, if you had to buy these miles, since AA only sells in increments of 1,000, you would have to buy 3,000 Miles for $88.50. That is quite steep considering you could get them for only $8 with this promotion.

Even if you don’t need the 2,500 Miles to put you over for an Award, these Netflix promotions are a great way to extendthe life of your Miles since this counts as Activity.

After you sign up, just set a reminder in your calendar 28 days later to cancel your Netflix account, if you would like. Although AA is really slow about posting the Netflix miles, last time I canceled it at around 28 days and the miles posted a few weeks later even though my Netflix account was closed already.

Unlike the United Netflix promotion, if you have taken part in this AA Netflix promotion before, you aren’t eligible. I always recommend for these type of Airline promotions, use a different Email and Credit Card for each Airline you participate with.

Delta also has a similar offer for 2,500 Miles if anyone is interested. You can do both at the same time if you want, just use different Emails and Credit Cards.

Hopefully everyone takes part in this AA Netflix promotion because it is a really cheap and easy way to earn some Miles.

Not to mention Netflix is pretty awesome. I still have a couple days left on my United Netflix sign up and I have been on a The Walking Dead marathon. A couple thousand miles and 1 month of Netflix is not bad for $8.

2,000 Free Priority Club Points

Sorry about the lack of updates this weekend. I ended up not being able to find a new web designer, so I decided to do it by myself. Thus my entire weekend was spent building a new custom platform for the site  which I think will be much easier to read and navigate. I think I’ll switch over to the new platform some time this week, so if you come to the site and things look funny, it is because I am tweaking the site on the back-end.

2,000 Priority Club Points

I got an email last week from Priority Club that I forgot to post.

Basically for doing 3 things that take less than 1 minute each, you can get 2,000 Priority Club points for free!

1,000 Points

“Reward yourself every time you shop. Earn up to 20 points for every dollar spent at over 600 of your favorite online retailers. Earn 500 bonus points when you set your account to receive special offer emails. Plus, register any of your credit or debit cards to earn an additional 500 bonus points and maximize your point earning opportunities at participating retail store locations.”

500 Points

“The Priority Club Dining program rewards you for going to your choice of thousands of participating restaurants, bars or clubs – including many of your favorites. Earn 500 bonus points and 5 points per dollar spent when you complete your online profile, plus earn 1,000 points when you spend $30 on a single dine at a participating restaurant, bar or club within 45 days. Simply register your credit or debit card – the rest happens automatically.”

500 Points

“Reserve any stateroom on any sailing on the world’s top cruise lines through Priority Club Cruises and you’ll earn points based on the length of your itinerary – up to 20,000 points. Register to receive Deal Emails from Priority Club Cruises to earn 500 bonus points and be among the first to learn about sales and the hottest new offers.”

The best part about all 3 of these offers is that you don’t have to spend 1 cent to earn the points!

Just opt in for some emails (which you can always opt out of once the points post in a couple of weeks), and register 1 Credit Card and you will be 2,000 points richer!

How To Maximize This Offer

If you haven’t already done so, as I talked about last week, you could sign up for 1 month of Netflix for $8 via Priority Club and get an additional 3,000 Priority Club points.

Why this is important is because coincidentally 5,000 Priority Club points is the exact amount of points needed to redeem a free night via Priority Club’s PointBreaks list.

Link To PointBreaks List

If you are not familiar with the PointBreaks list, basically Priority Club selects a few of their hotels every Quarter and offers rewards nights for only 5,000 points. Typically these same award nights would cost upwards of 20,000 points.

This includes INTERNATIONAL hotels as well as domestic hotels and depending on the Quarter, includes hotels from all of Priority Club brands like Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, etc.

While most of the hotels are typically not in large metropolitan areas, depending on the Quarter, you can find some real steals.

In the past I have redeemed a 5,000 PointBreaks award for a 1 night weekend stay at the Intercontinental O’Hare.

According to Kayak, a 1 night weekend stay at that hotel currently retails for $123 after tax or would cost 30,000 Priority Club points.
