I was busy and in a rush Friday afternoon when I posted the news about American’s new Double Elite Qualifying Miles/Double Redeemable Miles offer, so I thought I might follow up with a post that answers some of the questions I received over the weekend.

Double Elite Qualifying Miles and Points

When?

From now through December 31, 2012.

Is this just for AAdvantage elites?

No. Anyone that registers will receive double elite qualifying miles.

Do codeshare, partner, or oneworld partner flights count?

No. Your flight has to be on an American Airlines/American Eagle marketed AND operated flight: an AA aircraft with an AA flight number.

Do the bonus elite-qualifying points count toward AAdvantage Elite Rewards?

No. From the terms and conditions “This offer does not increment the member’s prize eligible mileage balance”.  I was wrong! The points do count!  See Ben’s post here with American’s explanation. Speaking of AAdvantage Elite Rewards, the deadline to register is December 15, 2012. Go here for more info to to see the list of gifts for this year.

Double Redeemable AAdvantage Miles

AAdvantage members with elite status

From now through the end of the year, all AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, and Executive Platinum members will receive double redeemable AAdvantage Miles.

AAdvantage members without elite status

From November 16, 2012, through November 26, 2012 AAdvantage members without elite status will also earn double redeemable AAdvantage Miles.

Will AAdvantage members with elite status earn 4x miles November 16, 2012, through November 26, 2012?

No.

If I reach elite status during the promotion will I start earning double redeemable AAdvantage Miles?

Yes. From the terms and conditions “Customers who qualify for elite status partway through this offer will receive double flight miles for travel post registration, from the date of qualification for elite status onward”.

Do codeshare flights, partner, or oneworld partner flights count?

No. Your flight has to be on an American Airlines/American Eagle marketed AND operated flight: an AA aircraft with an AA flight number.

Can I combine or “stack” this offer with existing AAdvantage Bonus offers?

Yes! You can combine this offer with one of these offers and earn even more bonus miles!

U.S. / Canada – Europe. Earn 100,000 Bonus Miles
Miami – Asuncion, Paraguay. Earn Double Miles
Celebrating Mexico: Earn Double Miles
Miami – Manaus, Brazil. Earn Double Miles
Dallas/Fort Worth-Puebla, Mexico. Earn Double Miles

For AAdvantage elite members that’s 4x miles!

Where can I find a great mileage run fare?

That’s easy, follow The Flight Deal for great deals like this LAX to Montevideo, Uruguay fare which offers 13,610 round-trip base miles for $852.  It’s like AAdvantage Gold status or a free round-trip ticket to London for less than $900!

LAX/MVD offers 27,220 elite status miles with the bonus, that enough for AAdvantage Gold. And if you already have status, with the double redeemable miles you’ll earn enough miles for a round-trip economy award to Europe: 27,220 miles plus up to another 13,610 elite bonus miles for a total of 40,830 miles!
