I guess with a name like American Airlines, you should be the airline that supports our veterans more than most. American Airlines always shows their patriotism this time of year. They have several very cool veterans events and offer you the opportunity to get some extra RDM through donations to the USO. American is the official airline of the USO and from 1-15 Nov. will give you 15 miles for each dollar you donate (minimum $25). This is a great way to add those extra AA miles you need to reach that next award level. Just to be clear, these are RDM and not EQM.
All of their events and details of how to donate can be found on this page.
Another way to support the USO (and the troops) is to buy AA Gift Cards. 10% of the value you purchase will be donated to the USO. If you plan to buy some tickets on AA, why not take this extra step and see that some of the money goes to a
good great cause! Details on purchasing these special gift cards is found here.
