Here’s an update from American in the Executive Platinum Facebook group:
Hi Everybody – yesterday was quite a day and I greatly appreciate your feedback in all forms and fashion! As you know, from time to time we run highly targeted offers to attract high-value customers. These offers are not intended to be publicly available or dilutive to the benefits that you have earned through your loyal flying on American. We believed the offer we launched yesterday to be significantly more targeted than it was, and as such took the offer down very quickly. The eligible customers who received the offer, registered for the promotion prior to its closing and achieve the mileage requirements during the stated time period will still receive status. We apologize for any confusion and appreciate your continued loyalty.
Update: The registration page mentioned below is no longer working and the promotion is targeted. It is only available to those who received the targeted offer and was put up available to everyone by mistake. So keep a lookout for the offer in case you are targeted! Also, check the promo code to see if you were targeted.
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. This is a great deal, so you should really consider doing it if you have any upcoming flights on their airlines or their partner airlines.
You will need to register for this offer using promo code HT3L1 by August 27, 2013, and then fly between September 1 and December 31, 2013, on American Airlines or select partners (American Eagle, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines and Qantas).
AA already discontinued the first sign up page. I now have new link up that is still working.
*try these promo codes: H3TLK, H3TLI, H3TFB, or H3TGM
Check out their website for the benefits you would get with gold, platinum and executive platinum.
