American Airlines and Miles4Sale.com have signed an agreement allowing consumers to purchase “gift baskets” of AAdvantage miles via Miles4Sale.com Web site.
Miles can be bought in quantities from 500 miles, starting at $19.95, up to 20,000 miles, with an annual limit of 35,000 miles per person. Consumers can purchase miles for themselves or send miles as a gift with an electronic greeting, by mail or FedEx. Miles4Sale gifts can be submitted immediately for credit to the recipient`s AAdvantage account.
Miles4Sale.com was launched in December 2000 in Dallas, Texas by James E. Dunne III to provide a valuable solution for consumers who wished to purchase frequent flyer miles for themselves or as gifts. Such miles can be delivered instantly online to recipients anywhere in the world. Miles purchased through Miles4Sale can be conveniently applied to any of the participating airlines` awards programs for upgrades and other travel services. Miles4Sale has attracted thousands of visitors and active account memberships and continues to grow mainly by referral.
In addition to American Airlines, other Miles4Sale participating airlines selling miles for their travel awards programs include America West, Continental, Delta and Northwest, with others pending.
