    American Airlines "buying miles"

    We are DONE with American Airlines credit card (citi mastercard) and AMERICAN airlines miles.
    Today I completed our LAST miles booking and i was 1001 miles short of 2 round trip tickets.

    So i figured, what the heck i will buy the 1001 miles.

    here is what they are charging.

    Miles Purchased: 2,000
    Total Cost: $55.00
    Total Tax: $4.13
    Processing Fee: $30.00
    Total (billed to your credit card):* $89.13 USD

    now, remember i only needed 1001 miles which would have been in the $27.00 range. but they would not sell me 1001 miles.....they are sold in 1000 increments.

    i am annoyed and put off

    we are done using the American Air credit card.
    we did gather loads of points/miles and used them all.
    current mile balance is 0.

    Was done with earning free flights years ago when they started making redemption so painful and expensive. Praying for the day Virgin America/Virgin Atlantic starts offering service and I am so done with the US carriers.
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".
