The Secret to Saving 7,500 American Airlines Miles!

Via Giddy for Points, there’s a loophole in the Citi American Airlines Reduced Mileage Awards.  It allows you to book award flights from all the airports on the list (this month it’s 128!) to anywhere in the continental US or Canada at a discount!

If you have 1 of the Citi AAdvantage credit cards listed here, you can book award tickets at a reduced rate to destinations that change monthly.  But I’ve confirmed that you can also book tickets originating from cities included in the sale!

This is especially good news for folks who live in cities that are frequently on the reduced mileage award list, because it means they’ll be able to fly almost anywhere in the continental US and Canada for a reduced number of miles (as long as they have the right credit card!).

Dear Daraius,

I need to accumulate 500,000 Marriott points.  Can I get a sign-up bonus from both the personal and business card versions of the Chase Marriott Visa card?  I don’t want to burn all my Chase Ultimate Rewards points for this award stay I have booked at the Ritz-Carlton in Grand Cayman.
