This Very Generous Offer is Targeted. If You’re One of the Lucky, You’ll Enjoy Instant AAdvantage Gold or Platinum Status Plus Upgrades!

Expiration Date – June 8, 2016

The newest targeted American Airlines Elite offer provides instant Gold or Platinum Elite status plus 500-mile upgrades or 25,000 bonus miles to those who are lucky enough to be targeted. If you weren’t targeted for this instant offer, American has an alternative AAdvantage Elite offer that is open to all.

We suggest you review the AAdvantage miles benefits page to clearly understand all of the extensive benefits you’ll enjoy at each AAdvantage Elite status level and to review trvlvip’s informative overview of the 2016 AA program.

You’ll have to log in to see if you were targeted and if so, you will be rewarded with Instant Gold or Platinum AAdvantage status until September 9, 2016, as long as you register for the offer by June 8, 2016. 

Technically you would have received an email inviting you to participate in this offer so check your spam folder. To register you will be required to enter the code provided in the email invite or you can try to input code HVC2B or HVC1Q. If you are eligible you will receive a confirmation of your registration and if not, you will receive a message that you are not eligible.

After successful registration, you will enjoy:

  • Gold status through September 9, 2016, 10 500-mile upgrades just for signing up by June 8 and if you earn 7,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) before September 9, 2016, you will enjoy AAdvantage Gold status until January 31, 2018

  • Platinum through September 9, 2016, just for signing up and if you earn 12,500 Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) before September 9 you will enjoy AAdvantage Platinum status until January 31, 2018, and 25,000 bonus AAdvantage miles

EQMs for each challenge are earned only on flights marketed by American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines and Qantas.

For paid flights you will earn:

  • 3 EQMs for each mile flown on Full-Fare First/Business Class

  • 2 EQMs for Discount First/Business Class

  • 1.5 EQMs for Full-Fare Economy

  • 1 EQM for Discount Economy

American Airlines is quite flexible and has typically allowed multiple attempts at completing their status match offers, while United only allows participation in their status match challenge once every five years and Delta only allows participation once in a lifetime!

The Wrap-Up:

If you’d like an easier way to Elite status with American Airlines, this is an excellent offer especially if you can earn the required EQMs to keep the status until January 31, 2018!

Register and try your luck with this instant Elite status offer plus upgrades, and if you weren’t targeted remember American has an Elite status offer available to all.

And it certainly doesn’t hurt to call American AAdvantage at 888-697-5636 with a request to be included in the instant offer!
