Haven’t seen this kind of promotion from American Airlines before. Remember that you still need EQDs (Elite Qualifying Dollars) to reach the elite status and 1,250 EQMs is not a lot at the end.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

To qualify for this American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus Elite Qualifying Mile promotion (the “Promotion”), an AAdvantage® member must have received an email from American Airlines regarding the Promotion (an “Eligible Member”). Eligible Members that register for the Promotion and earn miles on qualifying stays with Hotel Partners during the Promotion Period will receive 10% bonus Elite Qualifying Miles (“EQMs”) on all base miles earned from the qualifying stays. Limit: An Eligible Member may earn a maximum of 100 EQMs per qualifying stay and a maximum of 1,250 EQMs during the Promotion Period, regardless of the amount of qualifying stays. Qualifying stays that take place before an Eligible Member is registered for the Promotion will not count toward the Promotion. An Eligible Member must also be in good standing in the AAdvantage® program at the time of the Eligible Member’s first qualifying stay and throughout the remainder of the Promotion Period.

To earn AAdvantage® miles from qualifying stays, an Eligible Member must follow instructions given by the Hotel Partner to either (i) set the Eligible Member’s earning preference to American Airlines miles on the Hotel Partner’s site, or (ii) provide the Eligible Member’s AAdvantage® number during the booking process or upon check-in.

EQMs earned as a result of the Promotion will typically be posted to the Eligible Member’s AAdvantage®account within 7 business days after the qualifying stay has been posted by the participating Hotel Partner. EQMs only count toward elite status qualification for the AAdvantage® program. EQMs earned through the Promotion will not count toward AAdvantage® Million MilerSM status. EQMs cannot be redeemed for award travel, AAdvantage® miles or any other AAdvantage® program awards.

American Airlines is not responsible for products or services offered by Hotel Partners. American Airlines assumes no responsibility for how participating Hotel Partners count qualifying stays. An Eligible Member must check with the Hotel Partner to confirm how the Hotel Partner records a qualifying stay. Additional terms and conditions that govern certain Hotel Partners’ qualifying stays can be found at

The Promotion may be used in conjunction with other AAdvantage® Hotel Partner bonus mileage offers. Qualifying stays booked through that earn AAdvantage® miles will qualify for the Promotion. AAdvantage® program elite status requirements and balances are available on the AAdvantage® section of Additional terms may apply.
