American AAdvantage double elite and redeemable miles 11/1–12/31/12.

American Airlines has an end of year all apologies promotion that has my attention. AAdvantage members earn double elite qualifying miles and elite qualifying points for all American Airlines and American Eagle operated flights from November 1 to December 31, 2012.

American Double Elite Qualifying Miles promotion registration is required by December 31 using promotion code AATHX. Terms state retroactive credit will be given for eligible American Airlines flights during the promotion period prior to registration. This registration also applies to Double Redeemable Miles Nov. 1-Dec 31, 2012 for AAdvantage elite members.

The message below specifically states AAdvantage elite status member and the double redeemable miles portion of this offer is restricted to Gold, Platinum and Executive Platinum members. However, there is no reference to elite members listed in the terms for double elite qualifying miles. FlyerTalk thread on this promotion is a good reference source as terms get clarification.

Time for me to find cheap fares from SJC/SFO/OAK for 7,020 more flight miles by the end of next month.

I earned AAdvantage Gold elite status with my flights from Monterey to Barcelona last month.

I need to fly an additional 7,020 miles to reach American Airlines AAdvantage Platinum elite with this double EQM offer and a bump from 25% to 100% bonus miles on my flights. Elite points are a non factor for me in 2012. All my American Airlines flights in 2012 were discount fares and earned 0.5 elite points per mile. I am chasing elite miles to reach 50,000 elite miles for 2012.

Those double redeemable miles will help my flight award balance too.

Clue me in on cheap airfare if you see some good deals from California.

  1. @Erndog and akb – There are some flights that are surprisingly cheap from Monterey.

    MRY-LAX-BOS $136 one-way 3,111 miles. Can squeeze out even more miles via DFW, but I don’t think the extra miles are worth an extra flight.

    MRY to IAD/BWI/DCA $280 RT 5,600 miles.

    SJC-HNL $318 RT 6,112 miles

    MRY-MIA $275, but I am already going there in December.
