I have to give a shout-out to the Sprint marketing team; this is not a bad parternship. The idea of earning American AAdvantage Miles With Sprint creates a lot of…synergy and stuff. Unfortunately the goodness stops there. Heck, even I have Sprint, but I will not be selling my technological soul for 25,000 miles.
Now if they were offering MQMs…well, where do I sign up?!
An Important Note On Earning American AAdvantage Miles With Sprint
You have to pay attention to the details. See below.
Note: This offer is not combinable with the Sprint Discount Program. Existing customers who enroll in this program will not be eligible for an SDP discount and any current discount will no longer apply.Sprint Promotions
That’s kind of a big deal if you have a discount. This is basically what I call a anti-double-dip clause.
Aren’t most Sprint plans a discounted plan? That’s what they tout, but your mileage may vary so call or better yet, chat with a Sprint rep to see if your plan qualifies.
Why is this a good deal? If you get a 10% discount on your plan of $100. That’s $120 in savings per year. If you take this plan you are ultimately buying those miles for the discount. That boils down to $120/25,000 = .0048/mile. That’s a pretty good deal!
Why is this not a good deal? If you are on an old plan that has a considerable discount you could possibly lose both your plan and your discount.

I should add that unless your dream vacation is within the continental United States, you might need a few more miles.

An Unnecessary Back Story
For full disclosure, I have been with Sprint since high school. No, it’s not that we are class ring-prom inseparable, its just that I have an old plan that meets my needs. I know most will swear off Sprint and trust me, I know why. The Sprint Nextel years where comparable to a teenage goth who wants to hip hop dance to country. In other words, they were trying too hard to be themselves and everyone at the same time. It was a rough patch filled with poor customer service and even worse coverage.
The good news. Sprint has changed. The coverage is not bad, data speeds are decent and they have more a more consistent brand.
