American Airlines has just released an excellent fast track offer for Gold, Platinum or Executive Platinum status that is open for all non-status AAdvantage members. If you are not member yet, you can just sign up for AAdvantage and register for this offer.
Edit 6PM EST: AA already discontinued the first sign up page. I now have new link up that is still working. Edit: 10PM EST: Seems that AA has now discontinued all the offers listed below.
You need to register for this offer by August 27, 2013, and then fly between September 1 and December 31, 2013, on American Airlines or select partners (American Eagle, American Connection carrier, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines and Qantas). American Airline codeshare flights on other partners should qualify under this offer as well.
6,000 miles gets you gold, 12,000 miles gets you Platinum and 30,000 miles gets you Executive Platinum status. If you make the Executive Platinum status under this offer, you should also receive the 8 eVips that you should use to upgrade long-haul flights from economy to business or from business to first class.
Here’s more information about American Airlines elite status:
This is an excellent offer for those that don’t have any status with American Airlines. They (AA) have made quite a few targeted fast track offers this year, but this is the first one open to all.
You should certainly sign up for this offer and try to hit the 30,000 level if possible to get the system wide upgrades that are very valuable.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
This is an exclusive offer only for non-elite status AAdvantage members. AAdvantage members with Gold, Platinum, and Executive Platinum elite status are not eligible for this offer. You must register by 11:59 p.m. CT on August 27, 2013, and prior to travel in order for your elite-qualifying miles to count toward this promotion.
**Eligible airlines include American Airlines, American Eagle®, American Connection® carrier, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines and Qantas flights, as well as eligible codeshare flights.
