The Prizes

There are 40 grand prizes:

  • Forty (40) 1 Million AAdvantage® mile prizes

Also two second prizes:

  • 2-Night travel package for 4 to Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, FL

Your chances of winning those? Pretty slim, but, each spin has a chance to win a prize. Here are a list of smaller prize items that you could win from each spin. I’ve highlighted the ones that I consider worthwhile:

  • 40, 400, and 4,000 AAdvantage® Miles
  • Preferred Seat and Main Cabin Extra Seat Upgrades
  • Admirals Club® One-Day Passes, and Admirals Club® Annual Memberships
  • AAdvantage Dining℠ and AAdvantage eShopping℠ Offers
  • 20% off Participating Hyatt Properties
  • Complimentary One-Car Class Upgrade + minimum of 500 AAdvantage® Miles with Avis
  • Up to 30% Off + minimum of 500 Miles with Budget
  • Complimentary Upgrade (Compact Thru Full Size) + 3X Miles with Hertz
  • 10% off the base rate of Weekly Rentals in Sunny Destinations (FL, HI, AZ, Vegas) + 2X Miles with Dollar
  • 10% off the base rate on Weekly and Weekend Rentals + 2X Miles with Thrifty
  • 15% Off + a free SimpliCam Camera + 1 Free Month of Professional Monitoring with SimpliSafe
  • 3 Months of Free Service with LifeLock
  • $20 Digital Mastercard Gift Cards
  • 20% FTD Sitewide Discount
  • 2-Night Stays at Park MGM Las Vegas
Not all prizes are good – I’d consider the actual AA perks good, plus the 20% off Hyatt (providing you spend enough). The Park MGM Las Vegas may be the worst – You will probably end up paying the mandatory resort fee, which is roughly $37-$39 per night according to Las Vegas Jaunt.
