A package arrived in the mail just in time for my birthday. While the package was not sent from American Airlines, I ultimately consider it a gift from American Airlines.

I recently shared about the overcapacity of salted mixed nuts available at reduced prices from the supplier who serves both American Airlines and United Airlines.
As Kim Peacock of GreatNuts.com stated:
“I have 50,000 pounds of nuts American Airlines and United didn’t want! We’re feeling sad. We’re sitting on a lot of nuts.”
The result was a fire sale on mixed nuts, with the “first class” mix available for $6.52/pound with free shipping. That mix included:
Mixed nuts are a healthier treat than potato chips or candy, so I decided to stock up on nuts for our household. I love that pistachios are part of the mix, which I never see for less than $15/pound unshelled.
A large boxed arrived via USPS Priority Mail:
With the nuts inside it!
And I’m pleased to report they have not gone stale! My only complaint is the cashews are broken!
I’m a man of simple tastes. I’ll certainly splurge for nice hotels and upgrades when using points or miles, but those who know me best know I rarely spend money on creature comforts beyond coffee. But these mixed nuts will be a very nice treat that will hopefully last for months if I can avoid snacking on them (and keep my wife and son from doing the same thing!).
