AA seems to be sending out the following (targeted) email to many AAdvantage members:
As one of our most valued American Airlines AAdvantage® members, we are sending you this exclusive offer to earn up to 10,000 AAdvantage bonus miles.
Simply refer your friends, family and colleagues to join the AAdvantage program through our new Multiply Your Miles promotion. You will earn 1,000 AAdvantage bonus miles for every person who joins and participates* in the program before January 31, 2009 – up to 10,000 AAdvantage bonus miles!
Plus, each of your friends who participates will earn 1,000 AAdvantage bonus miles too.
Get started today, and begin multiplying your miles –
and your AAdvantage travel awards!
The only real fine print seems to be the following, for those thinking about signing someone up and buying a drink to get the referral bonus:
Eligible participating activity includes one of the following between October 22, 2008, and January 31, 2009: travel on American Airlines, American Eagle or the AmericanConnection® carriers, get approved for a select Citi® / AAdvantage® card, or transact and earn at least 750 miles with any of our many AAdvantage program participants.
Overall a very nice deal, but is there really anyone left in the world that isn’t a member of the AAdvantage program?
If anyone wants a referral (you get 1,000 miles, I get 1,000 miles), feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
