I guess as a result of their poor operational performance the past couple of months, American has just announced that they are offering double elite qualifying miles, points, AND redeemable miles through the end of the year for elite members! Non-elite members earn double elite qualifying miles and points as well, though only receive double redeemable miles for travel November 16 through 26. Registration is required using promotion code AATHX. This offer is valid for all flights operated and marketed by American between November 1 and December 31, 2012. Best of all there’s no requirement as to the booking date, so even previously booked travel qualifies!
Here’s the full text of the promotion:
This is HUGE. Hands down the most generous airline promotion we’ve seen in years. Double elite qualifying miles would already have been huge, but double redeemable miles as well? That means as a Platinum or Executive Platinum you’re earning 300% miles on all travel. I’ll have another post with strategies for maximizing this shortly.
