There is a new promotion today between Disney and American Airlines for the new movie Planes. Play a short video game and you can receive a 10% off American Airlines flight for up to two passengers within the USA or from the USA to anywhere American flies on its own metal around the globe.

Mommy Points and Lucky posted this offer today on their blogs.

There are only 100,000 of these AA 10% discount codes available.

American Airlines 10% Discount code rules:

  • Promotion is open to individuals legally residing in the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years of age (19 in Alabama and Nebraska) or older at the time of entry
  • Reward entitles the user to a 10% discount on a published round-trip or one-way fare.
  • Booking period July 30 – August 31, 2013.
  • Flight period August 15 – November 15, 2013.
  • Travel valid from the U.S. 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada to any other city served by American Airlines, American Eagle or the American Connection® carrier, excluding codeshare flights, purchased on American’s AA.com® website beginning July 30, 2013 through and including August 31, 2013, for travel completed by November 15, 2013.
  • The Reward requires instant purchase and may not be applied to previous reservations or reservations placed on hold.
  • The discount will not be applied to any government or airport imposed taxes, fees or charges.
  • Only one Reward may be used per reservation, for up to two people in the reservation.
  • Round-trip travel is defined as travel from Winner’s city to the destination, and from the same destination back to the city where you originated travel with no deviations.

The promotion is scheduled for July 30 to August 6, 2013 or when all awards are awarded. This is a big indicator that a deal this good is to be sought out earlier rather than later. The 10% off codes might be gone well before August 6 if this promotion goes viral.

I assume virality is the promotion objective. Those folks at Disney are so clever.

We played and earned two 10% discount codes for myself and my wife’s American Airlines accounts. I went for all 24 icons and Kelley stopped at three. We both received the 10% AA discount award.

Submitting your name and email also gets an entry into an American Airlines sweepstakes trip.

By the way, I have been seeing lots of commercials for the movie Planes. I assume within the next three years I will be riding on a Planes ride in California Adventure Park at Disneyland.

  1. Flight period July 30 – November 15, 2013.

    can you confirm that? I just use the code for Aug. 1,2013 flight. It shows that it is valid from aug. 15, 2013.

  2. @James – Does appear to be August 15 starting validity.

  3. I was pretty excited to read about this promo. But, I suspect AA’s Marketing team are manipulating prices for the extra publicity.

    I’ve booked two AA flights recently: one biz class long haul to Paris, the other was an economy short haul to Palm Springs which I booked this morning at work (on a different computer).

    This evening, after the promo was announced by a number of blogs – including this one – I checked at home the prices of the two flights I had previously booked. BOTH itineraries are now c. 10% more than when I booked (the second of which was only booked earlier today).

    In addition, the prices of all flights across the board for the Palm Springs route I was looking at, are now c. 10% more. This smells fishy to me.

    This could be coincidental. But, I suspect AA has inflated the prices in order to provide an artificial 10% discount. This is essentially free marketing for AA, with the blogosphere being used as the publicity tool.

    Can anyone else verify the prices of their recent AA purchases?

  4. @John* – Airline prices are unlikely to stay inflated for the next month. It does not surprise me that they are higher this week after the discount promotion.

    I am looking for a ticket to Europe in October. Anywhere in Europe.

    I’ll be checking prices and I suspect rates will drop before September 1 for fall travel to Europe.

    Any readers please shout out if you see a good fare from California.

    Dublin is the ultimate destination, but anywhere in Europe with a good sale and low cost carrier access will work fine.

    Kelley has an $800 AA voucher to redeem too.

  5. Hello,

    If anybody recieved a code they do not plan on using. I promise to put it to good use. I am attempting to purchase a flight that meets all of the criteria and could really use the help. Feel free to contact me on here.

    THank you,

    DD

  6. Hello

    I played too and did not receive an promo code of 10% :(???

  7. @Alice – the terms did say the 10% code was available while supplies last.

    My impression when this came out is everyone playing the game got the 10% off code. We picked up two right away.

    And then I read on blog comments after a couple days that people were not getting the 10% off code as easily.
