Great news for anyone looking to book a flight within the US or to Canada! American Airlines continues to expand its Economy Web Specials program and right now, we’re seeing a number of one-way domestic flights for just 5,000 American Airlines miles. That’s a great deal considering you’ll usually pay 12,500 miles for tickets like these!
With Economy Web Specials, flights start at just 5,000 American Airlines miles one-way for domestic flights. So the welcome offer of up to 60,000 miles after completing tiered minimum spending requirements on a card like the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® could get you up to 12 one-way tickets!
American Airlines Economy Web Specials
There isn’t an official expiration date on these deals, so if you find a flight that fits your travel plans I wouldn’t hesitate to book at the discounted rate.
Here is a sampling of one-way flights costing just 5,000 American Airlines miles and $5.60 in taxes and fees:
- Austin to Los Angeles
- Dallas to Toronto
- Los Angeles to Portland
- Minneapolis to Cleveland
- New York (LGA) to Norfolk
- Pittsburg to Orlando
- and many more!
Unfortunately, for now, you’ll have to search on American Airlines’ website to see if there is Economy Web Specials pricing on the route you want because there isn’t a dedicated sale page. But many of these fares appear to be valid for travel into the beginning of 2020! So it’s certainly worth your time to see if you can find a discounted flight that fits your travel plans.
The best web specials deals go quickly, so I’d suggest booking any deal you find sooner rather than later. The big thing to remember is that these awards can’t be changed. But if you can find dates that work for you, paying 5,000 miles one way is a stellar deal.
