MileValue really has the world’s best readers. Because of readers like you, I’ve been able to travel the last six weeks while “working” in places from Cambodia to Tampa.

As a thank you, I am giving away a $100 American Airlines virtual gift card.

I bought two such gift cards for myself on December 31, 2013 with my Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN, which now comes with 40,000 bonus Membership Rewards after you spend $5,000 in purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. The card also offers $200 in statement credits each calendar year to offset airline fees. Terms and restrictions apply.

Looking at this year’s travel schedule, though, I think someone else can use a $100 American Airlines gift card more than I can.

There are two ways to enter the drawing for the $100 gift card, and you can enter both ways to double your chances:

  1. Leave a comment on this post with how you’d use the gift card. (If you’re one of the thousands of people who have signed up to receive one free daily email every morning with all of the day’s posts, you’ll need to click this post’s headline to comment on MileValue.)
  2. Follow @MileValue on twitter and retweet this tweet.

Entry will close at 11:59 PM ET on Sunday March 30, 2014, and I’ll contact the winner afterwards.

Note: Gift Cards are redeemable toward the purchase of air travel wholly on flights operated by American Airlines, American Eagle® AmericanConnection® and oneworld® 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.
