Well this has been a good week for free miles! First Delta gave away 1,000 miles and now American Airlines is giving away 1,000+ miles for playing its Facebook game!
American Airlines created a Passport Challenge promotion that utilizes Facebook to gain some free AA miles. Some of the activities include:
- Learn and earn. Up to 700 miles (50 to 100 per activity)
- Be social and earn. Up to 350 miles (25 to 50 per activity like following American on Twitter, watching a video, and sharing a video with friends)
- Fly and earn. 500 to 2500 miles for flying on US Airways, US Airways Shuttle, a new domestic route, flying international, a oneworld airline partner, and exceeding qualifying points goals for up to 9000 miles
I say its a 1,000+ miles because you earn the miles in increments of 50-100 miles for playing some trivia, flipping plates in a game, recognizing tail fins and watching videos. You can decide how much (or little) you want to do.
In about 10 minutes of clicking through the games on Facebook, I earned 1,165 miles. If you have any plans to fly American or US Airways in the next few months, you could earn even more miles!
1,000+ miles by itself won’t get you a free flight but for a few minutes of your time, it’s worth it to gain some valuable miles. You never know when you will be 1,000 miles short of an award for a free flight
