- Spend $30 through the AAdvantage shopping portal (One Mile at a Time says that you need to spend $30 “via the AAdvantage eShopping Toolbar” but that doens’t appear to be correct.)
- Spend $30 through the AAdvantage dining program
- Credit a flight on American, a hotel stay, or a car rental to your AAdvantage account.
The shopping part is easy, so is the dining part though if you aren’t already a member of the AAdvantage dining program you’ll need to register a credit card. And a single car rental works. Not worth doing all three if you aren’t going to be engaging in any of these activities anyway by the end of next month, but redirecting a bit of existing activity to American could be worth the 3000 bonus miles.
