Cadillac Test Drive Rewards Live: 7500 American Miles for a Test Drive!

Just over a week ago I shared that American’s new patnership with Cadillac would provide tarmac transfers for top customers at some airports, and a big mileage opportunity for everyone.

The test drive offer is now live and online!

Right now, AAdvantage® members can earn 7,500 AAdvantage miles when you test drive any Cadillac* vehicle, including the striking 2015 CTS sedan with available adaptive cruise control and available OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi®**. The available Wi-Fi® hotspot works inside your CTS and up to 50 feet away as long as your vehicle is on, while the 4G LTE allows you to use your laptop or tablet as a mobile office with a reliable connection.

Contact a Cadillac Concierge today at 844-469-2234 to schedule an appointment and take advantage of this exclusive limited time offer. Please allow 4-6 weeks to receive your AAdvantage miles.

At this point you have to call to schedule an appointment. Then you’ll be registered to be able to receive the miles with your test drive.

My approach will be to document the call and appointment, and get a note from the sales representative confirming the test drive was taken. That way I’ll be able to follow up if the points don’t post automatically.

I don’t consider the miles ‘worth’ the $221 that the terms and conditions state. Although the value is low enough I’m not worried about their issuing a 1099 for ’em!

I do consider them worth about half that amount, though, and thus well worth my time to visit a Cadillac dealer.

There’s no specific end date for the promotion, though I’d expect it to run for 6 to 8 weeks. They’ll be looking at results and deciding whether to continue it or not (and could even end it early).

Terms and conditions:

At participating dealers only. Must have an AAdvantage account and be 21 years or older with a valid U.S. driver’s license. Employees of General Motors are not eligible. Retail value: $221.00. Test drive lasts approximately 10 minutes. Offer valid while supplies last. Limit one test drive per person. Allow 4-6 weeks for miles to be awarded after confirmation that test drive has been completed. Offer is nontransferable, nonnegotiable and not redeemable for cash.

Update: It seems Cadillac wasn’t quite ready for prime time with this, and telephone hold times are stretching to over an hour. One suggestion is to wait a few days. Another would be to use GetHuman for a callback from Cadillac (assume it’ll be an hour, but you don’t have to wait on hold). Perhaps the best suggestion comes from commenter Jean:

I logged onto Cadillac.com and hit the “chat” button. While it took a while back and forth with the live Cadillac agent, I’m all signed up at my local Caddy dealership next Monday.

  1. I work at a Cadillac dealership and I can tell you we dread these promos. They do no generate business and are a tremendous waste of my time. Do the Sales Rep a favor…just ask for the miles and don’t drive. We just want you go so we can get back to real clients.

  2. Absolutely no hold time today. Was done with the entire process in under 6 minutes. Booked for tomorrow.

  3. I test drove the srx 2 weeks ago. My phone wait time was about 20 minutes. I called at 10minutes to 8. My miles have already posted!
