American Airlines operates a parallel loyalty program for its small business customers called Business Extra. Anyone can join and add their number to an American Airlines reservation to earn additional points for lounge passes, free flights, or even elite status. Although the number of points awarded is much fewer, they are also more valuable individually.
Today I got an email announcing the ability to earn Business Extra points on US Airways travel, as well, marking the continued integration of the two carriers. For a limited time you can register with the code BXFLYUS and earn an extra 300 Business Extra points when you complete a flight by October 31 — it looks like a flight on either American Airlines or US Airways will qualify. Those 300 points are enough for a one-time pass to the Admirals Club or US Airways Club but are probably better used for an award ticket if you can save up enough.
Partial Terms & Conditions
To qualify for the bonus offer, the company must be enrolled in the Business Extra program and register prior to travel using promotion code BXFLYUS. The qualifying purchased ticket excludes reservations booked using a Business Extra reward or frequent flyer reward. Offer valid for flights booked and flown between October 1, 2014 and October 31, 2014. A maximum of 300 points allowed per company.
Promotion is valid for travel on eligible purchased published fares ticketed on American Airlines 001 ticket stock for travel on American, American Eagle or codeshare (AA*) flights operated by British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Qantas Airways, US Airways and US Airways Express.
The company’s Business Extra account number must be in the reservation to earn the bonus points.
Promotional bonus points do not qualify for tickets submitted for retro-credit processing. Business Extra bonus points will be posted to the account within six to eight weeks after the offer ends.
