Redeem 30K AA miles or just buy a one-way ticket

Jump to last reply

I need to buy a one-way ticket for a family member from Mexico City to Boston.

I can redeem 30K American Airlines miles for a "free" business class ticket - fees etc. amount to $40. Not the best use of miles (for example, I usually get roundtrip tickets for 25-30K miles). I have 54K miles...redeeming 30K miles will leave me with 24K miles...not much and I do not really accrue American Airlines miles anymore. Generally I find them pretty easy to redeem.

Or I can just spend about $340 on various airlines.

Thoughts? I already redeemed 17.5K miles for her return ticket.
