Easy AA miles: Chase Offer for $30 off $40 at Verizon prepaid [Targeted]

4

This morning, I found a targeted offer on one of my Chase business cards that’s good for $30 back on $40 at Verizon prepaid. While we’ve seen better from Chase before and there’s an even better current Amex Offer and I don’t really need Verizon service, I’ll nonetheless be happy to put this to use to pick up some easy American Airlines miles and loyalty points thanks to the current AAdvantage eShopping offer and the games we play.

The Deal

  • A new targeted Chase Offer is out that’s good for $30 back when you spend $40 or more on Verizon prepaid. Stack this with a shopping portal to come out ahead if you can spend exactly $40.

Key Terms

  • Expires 1/31/22
  • Valid one time only
  • Valid on prepaid purchases only, not valid on other Verizon products or services

Quick Thoughts

I’m not particularly interested in Verizon prepaid service, but I am particularly interested in American Airlines loyalty points. At the time of writing, the American Airlines eShopping portal is offering 3,700 miles for Verizon service — including explicitly for prepay customers.

I’ve signed up for Verizon prepaid before for a good portal payout. I never bothered activating the SIM card and I got the rewards. My problem is that the last time I did this (earlier this year), my total with taxes for one month was $39.

I’m sure there must be a zip code with $1 more in taxes, so I’ll hunt around for where I need to move in order to take advantage of 3,700 miles and loyalty points for $10.

It’s worth noting that we have sometimes seen the AAdvantage portal increase the payout on Verizon to as much as 6,200 miles, so it could be worth waiting for a better portal rate. It is also worth noting that you could alternatively get $30 cash back on prepaid activation via Capital One shopping, turning this into a $20 money-maker. Still, if you’re into AA status games, and if you value 3700 American Airlines miles at $0.01 or more, paying a net $10 for the miles and points is a better deal than the alternative $20 profit. And if you actually want Verizon prepaid service, all the better.

Great find. Two considerations. While many portal miles post very quickly, some are delayed, and some never show up; my one experience with Verizon new service (FIOS) purchase was that I had to pursue customer service to resolve that the miles were earned and get them posted; not too difficult, but you don’t want to lose track. Most importantly, do we absolutely know that portal miles will convert to the new AA miles for status? We know that for AA CC spend only 1 point / $1 spend counts no matter what the cc earning rate is for that transaction’s purchase category; the AA rules appear to say that base portal earnings count while bonuses do not; that is stated, but not with the clarity that I’d like. Therefore, I’ve pointed all of our portal activity to use AA portal so that ASAP we can see what the data points are.

[…] Update 1/7/22: Deal is back, this time $30 back when you spend $40+. Best portals are $30 on Topcashback or 3,700 AA miles. Hat tip to FM […]

This is super random / niche, but I support an Afghan resettlement agency in my city and they always need prepaid SIMS for newly arrived refugees if folks want to donate them.
