Happy Labor Day Monday, readers!
Fun fact of the day: In 1887, Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day an official holiday. It was officially adopted as a Federal state in 1894, by which thirty states had already adopted it as a holiday.
Now let’s get back to traveling and deals:
This morning I want to point out a few more free ways to earn some miles from your computer. American Airlines’ loyalty program, AAdvantage, has partnered up with e-Rewards surveys to give you a 250 AAdvantage Miles bonus just for signing up via the link on their website, and taking a survey within the first 3 months of signup. With surveys coming out multiple times a week, this shouldn’t be hard to do.
This is completely free, and although it’s a meager amount of miles, free miles are always great and every little bit helps sometimes. It’s also a great way to renew your points in case you have AAdvantage miles sitting in your account and they’re going to expire soon.
Other programs that have sign-up bonuses for the same e-Rewards program:
If you wanted to score the bonus miles for all the programs, then you would need to use different email addresses for the e-Rewards signup, as that’s how they track your account. After you’ve created your single (or multiple) account through this sign-up bonus, also keep in mind that doing surveys actually accumulates you miles that you can transfer back to your respective program. Unfortunately, e-Rewards only lets you transfer back from points to miles with the exclusive airline you signed up with. Still, it’s worthwhile to take 15 minutes out of your lunch break or morning commute via public transportation to just answer some survey questions.
