You can get 44 American AAdvantage miles per dollar spent at McAfee.com on several products.
That’s like buying miles at 2.3 cents apiece, which is less than American usually sells them for but not a price at which I would be a buyer (need to push under 2 cents per mile for sure to get me there, and of course shopping portal miles do not post instantly or within 48 hours).
While hardly an expert in this space, I’m not a huge fan of McAfee internet security products, though they’re certainly better than being unprotected and I’d choose theirs over Norton.
I view this as buying miles and getting security software free. My guess is there isn’t a great resale market for these items, so don’t expect to recoup your cost that way.

Amazon sells McAffe Total Protection 2014 for $15 so kinda meh:
Personally I’m holding out for more FAR Staples software which is typically anti-viral as well.
@Jonathon – I completely agree, if you’re going to buy McAfee just hold out for a sale. Somewhere online seems to be always selling a year of it for between $10 and $15.
