AAdvantage eShopping

Coupon or discount codes not found on the AAdvantage eShopping merchant listing will make the transaction ineligible for earnings.

Go to My Account and Recent store visits.

Points are considered posted when they appear in your AAdvantage account. Unless otherwise noted, the activity date will be the date of the transaction, regardless of when it is posted.

By program:

  • Paid Surveys Online: Almost immediately
  • Fuel Rewards: 5-7 business days after the sale
  • Flights on AA: points post within 24 hours after completing the travel (purchases for flights with an AA co-branded card post after the close of your billing cycle each month). The activity date is the departure date of each segment.
  • AAH / RM: 5-7 business days after the stay for prepaid bookings. In some cases, it can take up to 6 weeks. Allow up to 10 weeks for non-prepaid bookings. The activity date will be the check-in date.
  • SimplyMiles (SM): users have reported that it varies significantly. Some earnings are posted the next day, others take a week or two, or longer.
  • AAdvantage eShopping
    • It will depend on the terms. Some post in a day, others in a week, or even after a 60-day period. With some merchants, you must wait until the order is picked up or delivered. Regardless, you will have to give at least 15 days. If it doesn’t post within 15 days, you submit a request for credit. Cartera will research the request and it may take 6-8 weeks to resolve (up to 6 months in extreme cases). Merchants typically don’t report earnings back to Cartera until the purchase has shipped, is picked up, or is completed. With some merchants, earnings may be split if items are shipped at different times.
    • Days to Post information is available on each merchant’s page
    • Bonus miles via AAdvantage eShopping: bonus miles from promotions can take up to 10 weeks to post
    • Hotels via AAdvantage eShopping: If you booked a hotel through AAdvantage eShopping, the booking date will be the transaction date.
  • AAdvantage Dining: you will receive an e-mail within a day or two
  • AA co-branded Cards: points earned through American Airlines co-branded credit cards are posted after the statement closes each month. Purchases that are made on or before February 29 will count for that program year. Ensure that your AAdvantage # is added to your account
  • AA Vacations: miles will post within 2 weeks after travel is complete. A mileage credit may appear in your account after travel for 0 miles but this is not the final amount.

Examples:

  • If you book a hotel stay through AAH/RM for the future, the activity date will be the check-in date
  • If your flight took place on February 28 and it doesn’t post until March 5, it counts towards the previous program year
  • If you place a Blue Apron order on January 10 but it isn’t delivered until January 25, it will post with the January 10 date

The AAdvantage status earning program year starts March 1 and ends on the last day of February.

Be sure to check your Recent Visits on AAdvantage eShopping activity after the initial visit to confirm functionality.

For larger point purchases, screen recording your checkout process is recommended in case Cartera says the purchase was not eligible.

American Airlines posts points to accounts based off the transaction date, so any points which post after the end of February will still count to that program year (e.g. a hotel stay with a check-in of February 20, 2024 will count towards the 2023-2024 program year).

How long does it take and when do points post?

AAdvantageHotels.com (AAH)

When booking through AAdvantage Hotels or Rocketmiles (or other 3rd party such as Expedia), you will generally not receive points or nights from your hotel program. You should assume that you will not be earning elite points or nights.

You can try to add your hotel program to your reservation at check-in or by calling the property before arrival. Some users have reported earning points for incidentals, receiving basic welcome benefits, or earning nights (World of Hyatt members will receive benefits and earn points, for example).

It is ultimately the hotel property that will decide if you can use any part of your status benefits with a 3rd party booking.

This does not apply to bookings made through AAdvantage eShopping.

Users have reported that you do not have to stay or check in at a hotel property booked through AAH or RM to receive points.

With the exception of promo/boost miles, all miles count as Loyalty Points. For example:

The base miles earn miles & loyalty points while bonus miles earn miles only.

Via e-mail
support(at)mail.aadvantagehotels.com

Via phone
773-270-2992
844-801-6778

Take the total number of earned AAdvantage Miles (base miles only) and divide by total cost for all nights (e.g. 10,000/$350 = 28.5x).

Average = 30x
Good = 40x
Great = 50x

The AAdvantage status earning program year starts March 1 and ends on the last day of February.

If you booked on AAH or RM with a property that has a resort fee at check-in, you don’t get charged if you don’t check-in. These fees aren’t charged if your reservation is canceled. Some users have reported using virtual cards to prevent unwanted card charges.

AAdvantage Hotels offers three ways to earn more miles and Loyalty Points:

  • 5x more base miles on hotels for being an AAdvantage member
  • 5x more base miles on hotels for being an AAdvantage credit cardmember
  • 10x more base miles on hotels for being an AAdvantage credit cardmember with status

There are many posts with folios in the Facebook Group.

When you book through AAH or RM, reservation information is sent to the hotel property with virtual card information. This is different from your card information. Sometimes the property doesn’t know how to properly process 3rd party reservations and may ask for payment. You can call AAH or RM to have them provide payment information to the hotel.

Choice Rewards

At the 175,000 reward, most individuals choose the Systemwide Upgrade, followed by the bonus miles.

Read more in the Facebook Group.

You should set a calendar reminder for the day before your reward expires. It’s best to wait until you need the reward to redeem it as rewards such Systemwide Upgrades expire one year from selection.

After achieving the next reward level, it takes up to 48 hours for the choice reward selection to appear in the AAdvantage account.

If the choice reward selection doesn’t appear after 48 hours, contact AAdvantage Customer Service.

Co-branded Credit Cards

To distribute award miles from the business account to a personal account, points must be distributed by the authorized travel manager.

As the authorized travel manager, log in to business.aa.com. Then transfer to the desired employee through the blue “Transfer Miles” button.

For questions or requests, call the CitiBusiness Online Customer Service at (800) 285-1709.

Earning

In general, sign up bonuses (credit card or through various programs) do not earn Loyalty Points. They earn miles which can be redeemed for flights & hotels.

  • Loyalty Choice Reward – the 25,000 mile loyalty choice reward does not earn loyalty points
  • AAdvantage eShopping – all purchases earn miles and loyalty points (promotional bonuses do not earn loyalty points)
  • Simply Miles – all activity earns miles and loyalty points
  • AAdvantage Dining – sign-up bonuses earns miles only (all other activity earns miles and loyalty points)
  • AA Vacations – all activity earns miles and loyalty points
  • Miles for Opinions – all activity earns miles and loyalty points
  • Fuel Rewards (Shell) – sign-up bonuses earns miles only (all other activity earns miles and loyalty points)
  • Rocketmiles (RM) – promo/boost miles earn miles only (base miles earn loyalty points)
  • AAdvantage Hotels (AAH) – promo/boost miles earn miles only (base miles earn loyalty points)
  • AAdvantage Events – all activity earns miles and loyalty points

AAdvantage credit cards also earn loyalty points (we do not promote any specific credit cards) but sign-up bonuses do not.

If you just made a purchase and the earnings rate went up, you can generally cancel and place a new order. Orders must be clicked/tracked through the earnings program (e.g. AAdvantage eShopping). It is not possible to link historic purchases.

Be sure to carefully read the terms of the deal.
