American Airlines has expanded their Economy Web Specials program beyond the 6 ho-hum routes that were originally included. They’ve added LOTS of additional routes to and from popular destinations like Austin, Boston, Dallas, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Portland, and more!
This is really exciting news for anyone who loves earning and using American Airlines miles. With Economy Web Specials, flights start at just 5,000 American Airlines miles one-way. So the limited-time 70,000-mile welcome offer from a card like the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® could get you up to 14 one-way tickets!
These deals don’t have an official expiration date, so if you find a flight that fits your travel plans I wouldn’t hesitate to book at the discounted rate. Just remember, the cheaper tickets are good for flights after January 8, 2019.
For example, I found flights between Los Angeles and Honolulu in February 2019, for as little as 12,500 American Airlines miles one-way. Regular saver award tickets cost 20,000 miles one-way, so that’s a great savings!
We’re also seeing deals from 5,000 miles one-way on Economy Web Specials award tickets between cities like:
- Austin and Los Angeles
- Baltimore and Orlando
- Dallas and Fort Lauderdale
- Orlando and Pittsburgh
- Phoenix and Las Vegas
- and more!
Unfortunately, there isn’t a direct link to these deals. So you’ll have to search on American Airlines’ website to see if there’s Economy Web Specials pricing on the route you want.
Need More American Airlines Miles?
For a limited time, you can earn 70,000 American Airlines miles after making $4,000 in purchases within the first 4 months of account opening a CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard®. The $99 annual fee is waived for the first 12 months.
Because round-trip flights between Los Angeles and Honolulu are currently pricing at 25,000 American Airlines miles through the Economy Web Specials program, that’s enough for 2 round-trip flights between these 2 cities!
You could also consider the no-annual-fee American Airlines AAdvantage MileUp℠ Card. With this card, you’ll earn 10,000 American Airlines miles and receive a $50 statement credit after making $500 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. The possibility of getting 2 free one-way flights (at 5,000 miles each) from a card with no annual fee could be worth it for some!
