The Points Guy put the promotion to the test with American Airlines and found that, by purchasing just an iPhone 11 Pro, the points earned could potentially fund a one-way flight.
"To put math to this, if you purchased a rose gold 256 GB iPhone 11 Pro for $1,149 through the AAdvantage Shopping portal (without a trade-in discount), you'd earn 5,745 AAdvantage miles. Those miles are worth about $80, according to TPG's most recent valuations, and ... those 5.7k miles could be more than enough to fund an entire American Airlines one-way award flight."
