A reader sent us a tip yesterday that he and and his wife both received offers to fast track to American Airlines AAdvantage Platinum status that sounded pretty interesting as the offer included twenty 500-mile upgrades form the outset just for registering. Here is the text of the email — note that I’m adding strikeout text where I think it belongs since the text as copied by reader Mark didn’t include it:
You’ve been exclusively selected to receive complimentary American Airlines AAdvantage® Platinum status through December 13, 2019. Plus, we’ll give you twenty 500-mile upgrades just for registering — no strings attached.
Want to keep Platinum status or earn Platinum Pro status through January 2021?
Earn the following Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) and Elite Qualifying Dollars (EQDs) between the date you register and December 13, 2019.
Elite status level EQMs needed EQDs needed
Register before you travel and no later than September 25, 2019.
Those offers look pretty solid if you’re interested in Platinum or Platinum Pro status. Even if you’re not super interested in challenging for status, the included upgrade “stickers” (as they are often called) just for registering look like a good deal to me. Note that I have no idea how widely available you’ll find upgrade space on AA, especially on any given route, but if you know your routes I imagine that could be a really nice deal. It’s worth checking your email for this offer — which I did not find in my account.
