The airlines lets you pay for tickets by redeeming credits that you have in your American Airlines Reservations account on the official website. The credits are referred to as 'Advantage miles' and can be paid with for booking on the payment screen.

What are e-Vouchers and where to get it?

If you have booked a flight via American Airlines booking through your credit card, but due any reasons of your own, you decide to cancel your ticket, you won't get the refund in your credit card. Instead, you will get American Airlines e-Vouchers in your American airlines account. You will receive an email in which you will find a link. By clicking on the link, you will be able to retrieve the code to your voucher and PIN to use it.

Steps to book tickets with Advantage miles

Booking tickets with credits can be a tricky business. Here is a step by step guide to complete the task.

- Log in to the official website of the airlines and start booking a flight.

- Enter your origin, destination and dates of travel.

- Click the box that states that you wish to redeem miles and the fare will be shown in miles.

- Now check the flight schedule and select the date. The site will show you available flights.

There are two prices, SAAver and AAnytime. SAAver requires fewer miles but has low availability. The availability is almost unlimited with AAnytime but costs more miles.

- Choose your booking class from 'Economy MileSAAver,' 'Business MileSAAver,' 'Economy AAnytime,' 'Business AAnytime.'

- Next, you'll be directed to 'Choose flights' screen. Here you can select from the available flights.

- Sort the number of stops, arrival time, departure time and travel time and click on the favorable trip.

- Confirm the total amount and taxes shown in credits.

- Select your preferred seats from those that are available.

- You'll be directed to the payments page and asked for payment information to complete the transaction.

For a standard ticket, you'll need to pay extra charges for any changes you are willing to make to your reservation while for an award ticket you can make changes without having to pay anything extra as long as the origin and destination of the flight remain same.
