    Let American Airlines Help You Honor Mom

    FORT WORTH, Texas, April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- It's a challenge you face every year around Mother's Day: Mom never asks for anything, and yet, given all she's done for you, she's incredibly difficult to shop for. American Airlines has a number of affordable and unique gift ideas that will let Mom know how much you care.

    Consider sending Mom on a trip by giving her an American Airlines Gift Card. AA Gift Cards are available in any denomination between $50 and $1,500 and can be used toward the purchase of a ticket on American, American Eagle or AmericanConnection. Gift Cards are available at American's Web site, www.aa.com (you can even send them electronically), at AA Travel Centers, in Admirals Club lounges, in thousands of retail, drug and grocery stores, or by calling (800) 677-9555. AA Gift Cards have no expiration dates or fees. Find more information at www.aa.com/giftcard.

    Or, let Mom experience the comfort and elegance of an Admirals Club lounge by surprising her with a One-Day Pass or perhaps an annual membership. A One-Day Pass costs just $50 and can be used at any of American's 44 lounges around the world. They're easy to purchase: just go to www.aa.com/daypass, visit any Admirals Club lounge, or stop by an AA Self-Service Check-In machine at a domestic airport. If you want to give Mom an annual membership, now is a great time to buy. Through May 15, you can save $50 off a new membership or $25 off a renewal by using a flyer available on www.aa.com/women.

    Share your love for Mom by sharing your AAdvantage miles with her. (She'd do it for you). With American's shareAAmiles program, AAdvantage members can transfer up to 15,000 miles to another person's account, such as a family member or other loved one. Miles can be used toward air travel, car rentals, hotel stays - even magazine subscriptions. Visit www.aa.com/shareaamiles for information.

    If you feel compelled to go to a mall to purchase a gift for Mom, then consider the AAdvantage eShopping mall at www.aa.com/eshopping. You'll find more than 250 name-brand merchants on the site and earn AAdvantage miles with each qualifying purchase. The AAdvantage eShopping mall is an efficient way to shop. You'll find products from many merchants at a single Web site. You'll also have access to the latest coupons and promotions from the mall's merchants.

    Finally, if you're a procrastinator, check out the last-minute specials on AA.com. Affordable package deals for weekend travel (including airfare and ground arrangements) to dozens of destinations can be found at www.aa.com/lastminutepackages. Want a low airfare for the weekend without the ground arrangements? Then check out NetSAAver fares at www.aa.com/netsaaverfares. Either way, Mom will be thrilled with her surprise trip, and we won't tell her that you waited until the last moment.
