    Power (and AAdvantage Miles) to the People - Switch to Gexa Energy and Earn 4,000 AAdvantage Bonus Miles

    Chances are you pay an electric bill every month, so why not make it a rewarding experience and earn American Airlines AAdvantage® miles each time you do? Gexa Energy™ customers do.

    And now, there are twice as many reasons to switch to Gexa Energy. Just become a new Gexa Energy customer through Dec. 31 and receive 4,000 AAdvantage bonus miles -- that's double the number of miles customers normally receive when they switch to Gexa Energy. That's more AAdvantage miles to use toward a flight, an upgrade, a car rental, or a complete vacation package -- all simply for switching to Gexa Energy.

    Gexa Energy offers AAdvantage miles every month for each dollar spent (in addition to a one-time mileage sign-up bonus). And AAdvantage miles are earned no matter what Gexa Energy plan you choose, including the "Gexa Green -- 100% Wind, Pollution Free" plan.

    "The AAdvantage program has always been about thanking and rewarding customers for their business, so we're pleased that Gexa Energy is offering double bonus miles through Dec. 31 to its new customers," said Kurt Stache, President -- AAdvantage Marketing Programs. "And not only will you receive double AAdvantage bonus miles just for signing up, you'll also earn miles each month. It's a great offer all around."
