The AAdvantage mall has a promotion with magazines.com that gives you 60(!) miles per dollar for all purchases. This is the highest offer per dollar spend of any normal purchase I have ever seen.
If you buy magazine subscriptions for family and friends that's already a good way to 'buy' AA miles for 1.66 cents/mile. Your friends may appreciate the subscription and you get a business class flight to Asia for $1,666 + fees.
I have been buying gift cards from magazines.com this year and for every purchase I received the full amount of miles. If you buy a gift card and sell the gift card at abcgiftcards.com you will loose about 50% of the value.
However since you get 60 miles per dollar you are essentially buying AA miles for 0.8 cents/mile. This is a great deal!
Of course the question is if magazines.com still posts miles for gift card purchases. Also abcgiftcards.com may stop buying the gift cards if more people send them in. So you may have to wait or sell them on ebay (risky!).
