This morning I woke up to a lovely email from American Airlines telling me that I deserved FREE Platinum status! This year I have flown about 25,000 EQM since January and have already attained Gold status through 2014. Yet now, with this promotion I am being bumped to Platinum status. This is amazing since last year I only flew 16,000 EQM on AA and should truly have NO status. But thankfully, AA does not just drop Elite members, therefore I’m still flying high with status, and now I’m flying even higher!
This promotion does appear to be targeted, however there is NO harm is attempting to sign up for this promotion even if you did not receive the email. The email reads:
I am THRILLED to receive this email from American and will incentivize me get me back on board. 12,000 miles between now and August will be a breeze which means I’ll enjoy my new elevated Elite status level all the way through 2015! Although I’m the most excited for the 20 500-mile upgrade and the fact that I’ll earn 100% bonus miles on all flights, instead of only 50% 25% I was as Gold!
Thank you American! This promotion Rocks! I now see why you won the Freddies!
