The 1000 miles are worth about $17 and of course can extend the life of your miles by 18 months (since accounts go inactive and miles forfeit with 18 months of inactivity).
This offer expires June 12.
To earn the miles, just go to the AAdvantage university site. You’ll find 6 courses that earn 150 miles each and you earn 100 more miles for completing them all.
They want to teach you about the AAdvantage program, and engage you in how it works — and they’ll “pay you” to do it. Each course is a video that lasts a minute or two. If you think you know everything there is to know, just fast forward to the end of the video instead of watching. You’ll have to answer one question after each video to earn the points. (You get the miles though even if you answer the question incorrectly..) All in the exercise takes a couple of minutes, then, to complete.
It’s an easy 1000 miles so make sure you do this for all of the accounts you manage.
