Mileage Multiplier Option Available Via Self-Service Check-In Machines at Airports Throughout the United States
FORT WORTH, Texas, May 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines AAdvantage® members now have one more way to boost their mileage balance, with the introduction of the AAdvantage Mileage Multiplier(SM) product. Currently available via airport Self-Service Check-In machines throughout the U.S., the new Mileage Multiplier option enables AAdvantage members to increase their mileage balance faster by purchasing extra AAdvantage bonus miles with every eligible flight.
Travel on purchased fares on American Airlines, American Eagle or American Connection®, which are scheduled to depart within 24 hours, are eligible for the Mileage Multiplier offer. Bonus miles purchased through the Mileage Multiplier offer are added to the standard base miles and class of service bonus miles AAdvantage members already earn for their flights. Mileage Multiplier bonus miles do not count toward elite status qualification.
How it Works
- Step 1: AAdvantage members will be given the option to purchase extra bonus miles in conjunction with their trip when checking in for their flight at an airport Self-Service Check-In machine. Customers who check in at AA.com will also be able to purchase Mileage Multiplier miles – they simply need to visit a Self-Service Check-In machine upon arrival at the airport and select the Reprint Boarding Pass or Check Baggage option.
- Step 2: If a member's flight is eligible for the Mileage Multiplier offer, the screen will present a bonus mile offer of double or triple miles, at an introductory cost of approximately $0.03 per mile plus applicable taxes, and will navigate the customer through the purchasing process.
- Step 3: After the purchase is complete, the bonus miles will appear in the AAdvantage members' account – in most cases, before the customer arrives at their final destination.
Here are some examples of Mileage Multiplier pricing:
