Earlier this year, American revised the earning rules and gifts you get to choose from with their Elite Rewards, American’s incentive program for elite flyers who go above and beyond their status qualification thresholds – which you can now qualify for with miles, segments or points, and where you get your choice of gifts as soon as you hit a threshold.
I recently hit my 40,000-point mark (I’m going to have to play catch up for the rest of the year to hit Executive Platinum again!), and was given my choice of the following gifts:
- 10,000 bonus miles
- 3 500-mile upgrades
- 2 Admirals Club Day Passes
- Free Bags VIP luggage delivery
- 10% aa.com discount
