On Tuesday I noted that American extended systemwide upgrades that were set to expire on 6/30/21 to 7/31/22.
They are also extending the pause on mileage expiration to 1/1/22 or to 4/1/22 if you played their 40th anniversary spin to win game. Of course if you earned miles in that game they should post in June or July and they will extend your mileage expiration date by 18 months.
Credit card companion certificates with an original expiration date between 12/31/20-5/31/22 will now expire on 6/30/22.
Credit card flight discount certificates that expire between 6/30/21 and 7/31/22 will receive a 6 month extension of their expiration date.
Elite members can also click on Promotions to enroll in several offers:
Executive Platinums can earn 1,000 bonus EQMs per flight segment, Platinum Pros can earn 750 bonus EQMs per flight segment, Platinums can earn 500 bonus EQMs per flight segment, and Golds earn 250 bonus EQMs per flight segment through 8/31.
This promotion caps out at 10 flight segments. Registration closes 8/17 and only flights flown after registration will count, though flights booked before registration will count. Basic economy and award flights are not eligible for this promotion. Bonus EQMs don’t count towards challenges or million miler status. Partner flights are eligible for this promotion.
As previously announced, elite status thresholds were lowered for 2021.
These were the pre-pandemic requirements:
And here are the 2021 requirements:
And as previously announced, American is waiving the EQD spending requirement for Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Pro status for customers who spend $30,000 on American credit cards in 2021. All miles that post to your account between 1/1/21-12/31/21 will count for that requirement.
Will you requalify for American elite status?
