The list of “Reduced mileage awards” is out. You can get discounts of 7,500 or 5,000 miles per flight, but you need to have a eligible AAdvantage credit card and hopefully an airport close by that is included in the list.
You can book online or by phone and you can have your fee waived for booking reduced mileage awards.
Here’s a list of qualifying cards
7,500 mile discount
5,000 mile discount
- 7,500 miles

- 5,000 miles

You can find the list of eligible destinations here, but keep in mind that availability changes monthly, so make sure your destination is available.
