American Airlines is helping the USO out with a promotion they offer most years around Veterans’ Day.  For each dollar donated to the USO, American will give you 15 AAdvantage miles, with a $25 minimum.  This is pretty good payback for a tax deductible donation to a great charity.  See the details here.  The promotion lasts until 15 November.

They are also offering a different promotion that might be even better for some of you.  Buy AA gift cards and they will donate $5 to the USO for every $50 in cards you buy.  Max value is $1500.  So if you know you are going to buy some AA tickets in the future, why not buy a gift card or two (with the appropriate CC) and then use those cards to purchase your future trip.  Doesn’t cost you any more, but the USO will get some much needed $$ for upkeeping thier valuable lounges.  Details can be found here.


Currently in Singapore with the wife.  Will start posting my first mileage run trip report on Tuesday!
