If you’re new to MileValue, welcome! You should click the Start Here tab on the top of the page; it tells you the best place to start depending on your skill level. Check back daily because in the next few days I’ll be revealing how to get free oneways on US Airways and Delta awards!

Occasionally I give away something awesome like a gift card or lounge passes; it’s another reason to check MileValue daily. On to the giveaway:

I’m giving away a $67 virtual American Airlines gift card. I snagged this gift card for free last year with my American Express Platinum card (along with two others), and I’ll put the terms and conditions below, so you know how you can use it.

This is a unique giveaway as it will test your comprehension of the free oneways on American and United awards!

There are two ways to enter, and entry will close at 11:59 PM PT on Monday. Entry methods:

#1- Follow me on twitter: @milevalue

#2- Comment on this post with a valid routing for a free oneway on either American or United. Include whether it is a United or American award, the miles needed, what segment is the free oneway, and class of service. You can’t use my example comment or any from my previous posts.

Example comment:

United award in business class, 100,000 miles

LAX-LHR

LHR-LAX

LAX-IAH <— free oneway

If you’re having trouble, ask for help, and someone might help you correct your comment to feature a valid routing that includes a free oneway.

You can enter one or both ways. Enter both ways and receive two entries. On Monday night, I’ll use a random number generator to figure out which comment or follower is the winner. But if a commenter is the winner, and he put an invalid routing for a free stopover, he will not win. In that case, I’ll use the random number generator to select a different winner.

I’m doing this to incentivize everyone to understand how to get free oneways on their United and American oneways, so we can all squeeze a little more value out of our miles.

Gift card T&C:

It is transferable, so this giveaway is OK. Up to eight AA gift cards can be used per purchase, so you can combine it with any you have.

Gift Cards are redeemable toward the purchase of air travel wholly on flights operated by American Airlines, American Eagle® and AmericanConnection® carriers for itineraries sold and originating in the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. Gift Cards may also be used for payment of air travel on any oneworld® partner or Codeshare flights designated in flight listings as AA*. They cannot be used for payment of air travel on any other airline. In addition if a credit card is used in conjunction with gift card(s), the credit card must have a United States, U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico billing address. Gift Cards may not be used for upgrades, Admirals Club memberships enrollments, Admirals Club One-Day passes, AAdvantage Award Travel or other non-flight products and/or services sold on AA.com.
