Earn Double Elite Qualifying Miles with AA Through December 31

As an an apology for their recent operational woes, American Airlines recently announced something rather rare and unexpected–double elite qualifying miles on all flights flown through the end of the year.  All you need to do is register for the promotion here (promotion code: AATHX). Although there’s only 2 months left in this calendar year to qualify for elite status, if you have a lot of year-end travel, consider whether earning double elite qualifying miles with American might earn you elite status.

Note that elite qualifying miles count toward status but may not be redeemed for award travel. You’ll still earn base (award) miles for all flights as you normally would.

There’s more.  American is also offering double miles on Thanksgiving travel from November 16, 2012, through November 26, 2012. TripBadger offers a comprehensive overview of the AAdvantage program here.
