The easiest way is to use their MilagePlus shopping portal (their cash back site).

Possible suggestion (maybe there are cheaper options/better uses of a few bucks?) go through Crate and Barrel and buy a $3.95 Napkin that is Free Shipping Eligible.

Shopping portal is best but will require at least minimal spend.

If you are looking to spend no money whatsoever you can donate as little as 500 miles to keep them active to another 18 months.

Mileage Plus dining rewards is another option, though it can sometime take a while for points to post.

Dining is usually my go to for AA but now I also have their credit cards so I don't have to worry too much. I have some Delta and those should expire, hopefully.
