Business ExtrAA, American Airlines’ business mileage program, has launched an enrollment bonus good from now through March 31, 2013, where companies that enroll and spend $3,000 on eligible fares earn 2,000 Business ExtrAA points – enough for a roundtrip economy domestic ticket on the airline.
You can enroll and register for the bonus at this link and be sure to use the referral code SME4Q12.
Eligible fares include “only purchased, published fare revenue from eligible flights, excluding codeshare flights, booked in eligible fare classes for travel on American, American Eagle, and AmericanConnection and ticketed on American Airlines 001 ticket stock, will contribute to monthly revenue, net of refunds, fees, taxes, and commissions (“Flown Revenue”) for the purposes of earning Points.”
Normally, companies earn 2 points per $10 spent on eligible airfares on most routes – so the bonus is the equivalent of spending $10,000. Companies can redeem those points for over 50 award redemption offers including travel (2,000-25,000 points), upgrades (650-3,100 points), Admirals Club day passes (300 points) and memberships (3,000 points), conference room rentals (900 points) and gold status (2,400 points).
Even more exciting, though, is the concurrent promo where employees can earn 5,000 AAdvantage bonus miles by flying on American Airlines using their company’s new Business ExtrAA account number by March 31, 2013. There’s no link to terms and conditions for this offer, but if you do enroll your company for a new Business ExtrAA account, you should enter the new account number when making reservations to see if the bonus does come through.
According to AA’s Terms and Conditions, Business ExtrAA is open to companies with two or more employee travelers, though TPG Managing Editor Eric was offered and able to open an account just for himself, so the terms might actually be more flexible than that – it can’t hurt to try to open and account and take advantage of at least the 5,000 bonus AAdvantage miles for individual travelers, though if you have at least $3,000 in airline spending coming up, this could be a good way to maximize it by earning a roundtrip coach award ticket as well.
