I, like many others, jumped in on the AAdvantage eShopping advertisement for 83,871 miles with a rather small purchase from the Verizon website. Since then, there’s been a massive thread on FlyerTalk (now 212 pages).
I finally got my consolation email. For my less than $5 purchase of a charger, Cartera is promising 2500 AAdvantage miles to be posted within 10 days. With a second purchase in the next month, I’m supposed to receive an additional 2500 miles.
It ought to be fun seeing whether these miles actually post.
