How to use American miles for maximum value
In some cases, American AAdvantage members can book these new flights at the saver award level, which offers the best redemption value.
You could hop on one of these new international flights to Europe for only 30,000 miles each way. Travel during off-peak dates and you’ll pay just 22,500 miles each way.
If you must stay in the U.S., we’re eyeing that 12,500-mile one-way saver award flight to Jackson Hole. That’s a great value for a flight that often costs more than $350 in each direction.
