Reactivate expired American Airlines miles

Through the end of the year, American is offer AAdvantage members the opportunity to reactivate miles that expired after December 30, 2002.

There’s a fee — $50 for every 5000 miles plus $30 for ‘processing’. So really you’re just being allowed to purchase miles at a discount, one cent per mile, but that’s actually a pretty good value.
