American Airlines: 500 Free AAdvantage Bonus Miles!

American Airlines is giving away 500 AAdvantage Bonus Miles (frequent flyer miles) just for doing a survey. You just need to complete the short survey along with your AAdvantage miles account info at

Considering that 25,000 AAdvantage miles are needed for short trip in the U.S., 500 miles will give you 2% towards this goal of 25,000 AAdvantage miles. If you're one of those shoppers who want to earn these miles towards your trip, you know that every little bit helps! Plus, earning these 500 AAdvantage miles will keep your account active because AAdvantage accounts lose their miles if they're inactive for 18 months.

If you're thinking about shopping on Starbucks' U.S. website, you can get a 10% discount by entering the coupon code "STNPWEKD" at their checkout. It has to be your first purchase on their website: if you use a new e-mail address and credit card number, this should qualify as a "first purchase" on their website. Hats off to for providing this great discount code.  You can find more Starbucks-related discounts at

I love doing my computer work and blog writing at Starbucks. Their coffee shops are very cozy and they have good ambience, and I've tried their new Vanilla spice latte, which tastes great.

For my Canadian readers, Starbucks' Canada is giving away Free Starbucks Tall Blonde Roast coffee. You need to sign up for their blonde roast coffee naming contest at and login at this site with your facebook account.
