Back in August American announced that they would be changing their million miler program as of December 1, 2011. Previously the program was unpublished and all miles earned counted towards million miler status, including miles earned through credit card spend, points transfers from other programs, etc.
So this post is just to remind y’all that the program changes next Thursday, just under a week from now. The good news is that it’s not to late to transfer points from Starwood. Starwood points transfers to American AAdvantage typically post on Wednesdays (which would be the 30th), assuming the transfer is requested by that Monday, in my experience. So if you transfer points from Starwood today or over the weekend, the miles should still count towards million miler status.
Good luck to those of you trying to reach the next million mile threshold!
