A few days ago, I received an email from American Airlines, offering an opportunity to win two First Class round-trip tickets anywhere American flies. To enter, follow this link, and enter your dream destination (don’t worry, entering a destination into this box doesn’t lock you into actually going there if you win the tickets — it’s just a placeholder for future screens in the contest). You then watch 6 different videos (all just a couple minutes long) and answer a question about each. These questions are pretty straight forward – I didn’t watch a single video and I answered them all correctly.
Once you’ve answered these questions correctly you automatically earn 1,000 AAdvantage miles. This is an extremely easy was to boost your mileage balance and to keep your AAdvantage account active (as this deposit of 1,000 miles will reset the countdown on your mileage expiration). Trust me – you won’t win the two First Class round-trip tickets (sorry to let you know that), but 1,000 free AAdvantage miles are pretty great – you won’t get anywhere with just 1,000, but hey, it’s free miles and it’ll just cost you about 4 minutes of your life. Go do it, now!
