American Launches Elite Rewards Offer

As part of the AAdvantage (R) Program's 25th Anniversary celebration, American Airlines rolled out an elite rewards offer to AAdvantage Executive Platinum, AAdvantage Platinum and AAdvantage Goldmembers. Members who meet specified miles/points goals set for each elite status level by Dec. 31, will have the option of making a selection from a list of rewards designed specifically for the airline's top flyers. Options include system-wide upgrades, Admirals Club passes or the ability to give AAdvantage Gold status to a friend or family member. These rewards require no mileage redemption and are in addition to the miles earned, according to Kurt Stache, president, AAdvantage Marketing Programs. Members who reach the specified miles/points goal by the end of 2006 will be sent an e-mail message in January 2007 inviting them to choose their reward. Members must opt-in to receive the AAdvantage e-Summary so they will be notified when they may choose the special elite reward. There is no need to register for this offer in advance. Members who aren't already receiving an e-summary may subscribe by going to the My Account section at the Web site and clicking on the "E-Mail Subscriptions" tab.
