AA Elite Fast Track Promotion
I know a lot of you are registered in the LinkedIn American Airlines AAdvantage elite fast track that became available a couple of months ago. If you have questions about that promotion, I wrote an entire FAQ about it.
This weekend I am flying on American Airlines and I just passed 5K elite qualifying points last night. As I expected, my account automatically upgraded itself to Gold as soon as I hit that threshold. After today’s flight I should pass 9,000 EQPs and I fully expect that my account will be upgraded to Platinum at that time. It has been taking between 12 and 24 hours for flights to post.
Remember once you hit Gold you also receive a 25% bonus on base miles earned and Platinum comes with a 100% bonus. Those are very nice ways to pad the amount of miles you earn from flights! I’m glad American has made this elite fast track so easy! If you are enrolled everything SHOULD work automatically, but note that the website will still show the normal qualification amounts for each tier as shown above.
The American Airlines AAdvantage elite fast track is a great deal if you were able to register for it. Unlike promotions with some other companies that require a lot of follow up, American seems to have their IT together and at least with my account everything is happening automatically! Just a few more flights and I’ll be an Executive Platinum!
