American Airlines Discounted Awards

One of the neat things about the American Airlines Mastercard is that cardholders have access to discounted awards to specific destinations which change each quarter.

I don’t actually find the card worth the annual fee, but since it’s generally available for 20,000 bonus miles with first purchase and fee waived the first year, and since you can earn this bonus with fee waiver multiple times, I generally have a free version of the card in my wallet at all times.

The new quarter’s discounted awards are out. Domestic sale destionations drop to 17,500 miles for a coach award (down from 25,000) and 37,500 for a first class award (down from 45,000). Even Paris is on sale for 32,500 miles in coach durin gthe dead time of October 15 – December 31 and Osaka, Japan is on sale for 42,500 miles in coach during the month of October.
