American has made an offer for instant Platinum status until May 31, 2013, and extending it until February 28, 2014, for flying 12K miles or earning 12K elite qualifying points. And just for registering for the offer, American would deposit 20 500 mile upgrades that can be used to upgrade around 10K flown miles on American from economy to business. [click to continue...]

Le Club Accorhotels is giving 200 Le Club Accorhotels for participating to this contest that has some other prices as well. This emailed offer is valid from January 28 to March 31, 2013. You can access this contest here.
