The discussion yesterday in the comments about sharing dead-end offers was terrific!
Folks split pretty evenly between wanting to know about every offer versus wanting to know of only the good offers.
I can see both sides of the discussion, so I’m going to sleep on this for a bit. I did like the suggestions of not wasting too much time writing about the potentially dead-end offers, but to instead just briefly describe the offer, my reservations, and a link.
In the meantime, some of you wanted to know more about the 100 mile AA offer which I mentioned yesterday.
I’ll share more since that deal has hit the blogs, but you should know that I don’t expect to receive any miles from this offer, and I haven’t registered Emily’s AA account for this as well.
KGB Deals (that’s their name, seriously!) is offering 100 AA miles for signing-up for daily emails from them.
100 AA miles is worth about $1 or $2 so I am not particularly worried about missing out on this deal. I shared my concerns about this offer yesterday:
- “I didn’t receive any confirmation that I would earn 100 AA miles when I signed-up
- The company is not listed as an official American Airlines partner and
- Perhaps most worryingly, the domain name for the company was registered just a few months ago.”
In addition, there is nothing on the webpage which indicates when to expect your miles to post, and I’m not too impressed with the way the American Airline’s logo appears on the page (It appears to be pasted on hastily).
Oh, and there is nothing in the Press Release section of KGB Deals listing their partnership with AA.
As a reminder, I’m not doing this for Emily’s AA account.
I was traveling for most of today, because I learned that I have to attend a work conference this weekend. I’ll be in meetings and events for most of the weekend, starting at 6:30 am tomorrow, so I likely won’t be able to update the blog (unless there is another potential dead-end offer). 🙂
I’m working on a post for next week which should further help with completing minimum spending on your new credit cards.
Have a wonderful and safe weekend!
