Via One Mile at a Time, if you were targeted, can earn up to 30,000 bonus American Airlines miles on round-trip flights to certain cities in Asia, booked and flown through May 31, 2017.  Destinations like Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and more, are included in the deal!

Most paid flights qualify, including First Class, Business Class, and Premium Economy.  But only select coach tickets are eligible, and the flights must be operated by American Airlines or Japan Airlines.

Visiting the Great Wall of China This Spring? You Could Earn Bonus American Airlines Miles for Your Flight!

To register for the offer, log-in with your American Airlines frequent flyer account information, and enter code “ASM17” when prompted.

If you weren’t targeted for the deal, you’ll get an error that says your frequent flyer number doesn’t qualify.

Most paid tickets, except a few discount coach fares, will count.  Award flights are NOT eligible.  You can check out the terms and conditions for details.

The number of bonus miles you’ll earn per round-trip (earn half for one-way flights) depends on the class of service and fare type:

  • Coach (Y, H, K, M, L, W, V, G, Q, N, O or S fares):   5,000 bonus American Airlines miles
  • Business Class (J, R, D or I fares):   8,000 bonus American Airlines miles
  • First Class (F or A fares):   15,000 bonus American Airlines miles

And the maximum amount you can earn through this promotion is 30,000 American Airlines miles (2 round-trip First Class tickets).

Is It Worth It?

This could be a good deal if you’re already planning a trip to Asia this spring with a paid ticket.  Especially if you can find an inexpensive flight that qualifies.

For example, I found a flight departing Chicago on April 6, 2017, and returning from Beijing April 13, 2017, for ~$528.

But I wouldn’t go out of my way to take advantage of this offer, because you’ll have to buy an (expensive!) First Class ticket to earn the maximum bonus.

However, I always recommend signing-up for promotions like this, because it only takes a few minutes to register.  And you never know when a travel opportunity might come up.
