Some folks have been targeted to receive complimentary American Airlines Platinum elite status through September 9, 2016.
All you have to do is sign-up with the promotion code “HVC2B” by June 8, 2016. The code will NOT work unless you’ve been targeted.
To keep the status through January 31, 2018, you’ll need to earn 12,500 EQMs (elite qualifying miles) between the time you register and September 9, 2016. And you’ll also earn 25,000 bonus American Airlines miles!
Platinum Elite status members get perks like:
- Complimentary upgrades on flights 500 miles or less
- 100% mileage bonus on eligible flights
- Complimentary Main Cabin Extra and Preferred Seats
- Priority check-in, security, and boarding
- 2 free checked bags
So check your email to see if you got the offer!
What If You Were NOT Targeted?
You can still get valuable elite status benefits, like priority or Group 1 boarding and 1 free checked bag on domestic itineraries, with certain credit cards. Like the Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage card, Citi Executive AAdvantage World Elite card, or Citi American Airlines Business AAdvantage card.
All of these cards are currently offering 50,000 American Airlines bonus miles after meeting minimum spending requirements.
