American Airlines AAdvantage Targeted Status Promotion For 2020

1 Comment

American Airlines has launched two separate offers for select AAdvantage members, offering them a fast track to status in 2020, and we already wrote one of them yesterday (read more here).

There is the offer to earn status entirely on spend (no AA flights required) in 2020, and a second one for double elite qualifying segments (EQS) for flights flown January 1 – March 31, 2020.

You can access AA Promotions here to see if you are eligible.

Here’s the Gold to Executive Platinum status offer:

And here the offer for double EQS:

Conclusion

Interesting offers for those that are eligible for either of them. As I posted yesterday, it seems that US-based programs are entirely decoupling the number of miles flown from elite status, making it entirely based on spend.

Here are the terms and conditions of the Gold to Executive Platinum status offer:

This is an exclusive offer only for members who received a message directly from American Airlines. You must register by 11:59 p.m. CT January 14, 2020, in order for your Elite Qualifying Dollars (EQDs) to count toward this promotion.

EQDs are awarded based on ticket price (includes base fare plus carrier-imposed fees, but excludes government-imposed taxes and fees) on American Airlines-marketed flights.

  • Flights marketed by oneworld® carriers will earn EQDs based on a percentage of the flight distance and the fare class purchased.
  • Flights that don’t earn EQDs won’t count toward this promotion
  • Bonus EQDs don’t count toward EQD thresholds for this promotion
