Each month I’d earn thousands of AA miles which supplemented the occasional miles earned from credit card sign up bonuses, e-shopping and dining out.
I closed my account a couple of months back since the bank was going to convert all accounts to ones which would eventually no longer earn miles.
For those of you unfamiliar with BankDirect, here’s how the mileage earning accounts worked; Earn 100 AAdvantage miles per month for every $1,000.00 of the average daily collected balance in your Mileage Checking with Interest Account up to the first $50,000.00 on deposit. Average daily balances above $50,000.00 earn 25 AAdvantage miles per $1,000.00 on deposit, with no cap.
I never really thought about how many miles I’ve earned over the lifetime of my BankDirect account. While looking around online, I saw an option in the dashboard to see just how many miles I had earned.
Prior to closing BankDirect, I signed up for an account with Bask Bank, another bank where you can earn American Airlines miles. (Both banks are affiliates of Texas Capital Bank.)
I signed up with a small amount in hopes of earning the sign-up bonus.
If you’d like to earn bonus American Airline miles for opening an account with Bask Bank, you can do so here. (When you deposit $10,000 or more and leave it in the account for 90 days, you’ll earn a bonus of 5,000 miles.)
(FYI- If you use my link to sign up for Bask Bank, I may earn a refer-a-friend bonus.)
