  1. >At a minimum American will have me visiting each weekday..

    Or more likely, I’ll just read your blog daily…. 🙂

  2. I entered my AAdvantage number and yet I don’t really know if I’m registered for the promotion, a new window pops up to book flights without any confirmation that I have been registered. Now only if I had serious reasons to fly like I did in the previous decade.

    Promo #1 is only good for 12 days. I find that a cheapskate promo for a 30th Anniversary. And Days Inn is the last promo? What’s that promo for……..3 miles per stay?

    Hope the other ones are better…..gotta a feeling most promos won’t be so hot and the boardroom putting it together, Donald Trump Apprentice rejects? I dunno…


  3. @ED – If you are concerned, take a screen shot. It appears that nothing more than submitting your account is needed. Not sure how a freebie/giveaway promo could possibly be considered “cheapskate”. If you don’t like the price of admission, just don’t participate… it’s not like you’re obligated. You could give your business to an airline that isn’t offering a promo at all.
