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.

    No. You get this error
    The Promotion is reserved for new enrollments and is not available for registration.

    If you alone fly, you will NOT get the bonus. Further to reading the fine print:

    “at least 2 travelers (including recipient) must fly using the newly created Business ExtrAA account number between December 7, 2012 and March 31, 2013″

  • Poverina

    What if you have already booked the flights but not travelled?

  • Mjones

    Do all employees (I have 10) get the 5k points when they fly? Does the account manager have to fly?

    This looks to be targeted as per email to Business ExtrAA to confirm registration. See email response from them:

    Thank you for your email. We currently do not see your Business ExtrAA Account enrolled in any promotions. This is a targeted promotion, if you could please forward us any email pertaining to this promotion we will be happy to look into getting that code added to your account.
