LoyaltyLobby reader’s family member that doesn’t have any status with American has just released an offer for instant Platinum status with 20 500-mile upgrade stickers. Flying 12,000 miles or elite qualifying points on AA or select partners by November 30, 2013, they could keep the status all the way to February 2015.
Note that although the screenshot above shows the promotional code to register for this offer, the offer is not valid (you will receive email confirmation though) unless you have received this offer directly from American.
I was able to find a Gold version of this offer as well, but I am not 100% sure if there is an offer for Executive Platinum as well.
Details of the Platinum offer
Details of the Gold offer
American Airlines has been extremely generous with all these fast track offers for Gold, Platinum & Executive Platinum offers this year. They seem to target fliers that really don’t have any status with American, but they think that could give them some business.
