Much like Southwest introduced a hotel booking site in 2017 that allows you to earn Southwest points by booking hotel rooms through the site, American now has the same. Both are run by Booking.com.
American’s hotel booking site lets you choose from more than a million properties around the world earning up to 10,000 American AAdvantage miles per night.
Booking a hotel through the Southwest or American hotel booking site is one of the easiest ways to earn a boatload of points or miles quickly. But, of course, you’ll need to have a hotel stay coming up :).
Even better is if you can book a hotel for business through the site and be reimbursed through your company — or use a company credit card. They pay, you get the points!
When searching for a hotel room on the site, look for the AAdvantage logo, which will be followed by the total number of miles you can earn on your stay across all nights. You can even sort by AAdvantage Miles Earn Rate.
Some hotels require pre-payment while others do not, so make sure you know which you are booking and what the cancellation policy is for that hotel.
Your miles will be credited to your AAdvantage account within two to three weeks of the completion of your stay.
