10% Off American Airlines Gift Card

“They can be used towards the purchase of air travel on American Airlines, American Eagle, American Connection, oneworld airlines (i.e., Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Qantas, etc.), and AA Code-Share flights.  The one caveat is that your itinerary must be purchased and originate in the US, Puerto Rico, or US Virgin Islands. Additionally, Costco allows you to return your gift cards if they are not used. You probably want to call your local Costco to see if they have them in stock as it has been reported as they are not available at all locations.”

I want to emphasize that these gift cards can also be used on oneworld airlines, so you could save up to 10% not only on American Airlines & American Eagle, but also on other airlines such as British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Qantas etc. if booked through American Airlines.

If you usually visit family over Thanksgiving or Christmas (and American Airline is present in your home airport) you may want to consider stocking up on these gift cards since you will get a 10% discount when you use the gift card to book your flights.

Unfortunately, you can’t use these gift cards to pay the taxes and fees on award travel, for co-pays on upgrades, or to buy lounge access.

You can always return the gift cards to Costco if you don’t use them!  Here are the complete Terms & Conditions for the gift card.

Bottom Line: You may want to stock up on these cards if you have future travel on American Airlines or their oneworld partner airlines. And, if you don’t use the cards, you can always return them to Costco.

Do you have any upcoming travel on American Airlines?  Tell us about it in the comments!

I have 4 $100 gift cards I will sell for $90 each if interested.

American Airlines also allows you to book other airlines on their website if you use the “search all carriers” feature. Do you know if these gift cards could be applied to those purchases? It sounds like that is not the case.

Since not all Costco stores have the gift cards and not everyone has a Costco membership another option (that’s only half as good) is to buy gift cards via Ebillme. You can get 5% cash back on American Airlines gift cards. You can also get 5% off gift cards from Travelocity. To see all gift card options visit

@Craig Ford – Thanks for the tip. It may be only 5%, but you can do it on the internet which saves a lot of time!

@ANC RED-EYE – It shouldn’t let you use the gift card for non oneworld airlines, since the terms say “Gift Cards may also be used for payment of air travel on any oneworld partner or Codeshare flights designated in flight listings as AA.”
