Update, 12/1: My Executive Platinum gift was 4 500-mile upgrades and the ability to earn 4 more and 2,000 miles for booking and flying 4 premium flights in January or February.
My wife’s Platinum gift was 250 miles and the ability to earn double miles on all flights for booking and flying 6 flights in January or February.
Readers have posted getting gifts like 100 miles, 2 500 mile upgrades, and preferred seat upgrade coupons.
100 miles may not be worth more than a buck or 2, but it will extend the life of your miles by another 18 months.

Starting tomorrow, you can check register in the promotion section of your AAdvantage account for a free gift from American.
Gifts can be miles, seat upgrades, or club passes.
If you’re not an AAdvantage member you can enroll in the program by 12/16 and still get a gift.
Plus starting tomorrow, you can register in your promotions section to enter to win 500,000 miles plus 4 nights at a Hyatt Ziva or Hyatt Zilara Resort or a 3 night stay at Universal Orlando Resort, including park passes. Those prizes are somewhat dubious though considering that the Hyatt prize has an ARV of $12,800 and the Universal Studios prize has an ARV of $15,470. That will be quite the tax bill if you win!
I asked American for a breakdown of the ARV calculations, but they declined to provide one.
