American Airlines is sending out targeted offers to some AAdvantage members offering free or fast tracked status.
There are various different targeted offers being sent out. Some emails are offering free American Airlines status until May 25, 2018, while others are offering a fast track to status.
My wife received an offer for Platinum Pro status until May 25, 2018. Registration was easy – she simply had to register by February 1, 2018 by clicking on a link in the email from American Airlines and enter the promotion code provided in the email.
That only took a few seconds and voila:
Although we’re on a permanent road trip, she’ll be taking an as-yet unbooked flight on American next month, so at least she’ll get to take (A)advantage of some of the benefits before the status disappears.
I’ve no idea why she was targeted for this promotion, particularly for the Platinum Pro level. She only flew one segment with American Airlines last year, and nearly all her AAdvantage miles have been earned through credit card signup bonuses.
Josh in the Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group reports that he was offered free Gold status. OMAAT is also reporting that some people are receiving fast track status offers, such as only requiring 35,000 EQMs and $4,000 EQDs by May 25, 2018 in order to earn Executive Platinum status.
Be sure to check your emails to see if you’ve received one of these offers. If you use Gmail and have never configured your inbox, the email might appear in your ‘Promotions’ tab.
If you’ve received this offer but don’t have any immediate travel plans with American, it’s worth registering anyway. Registration expires on February 1, 2018, so it’d be a shame to book last minute travel and have miss out.
