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.

AA elite rewards giveaway

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% discount
So to celebrate, for this week’s Thursday Giveaway, I want to award a lucky TPG reader with two Admirals Club day passes (that I had gotten from my last Citi AA Visa sign-up) and their choice of the following Elite Rewards (these are the only ones that are transferable):
1. Two more Admirals Club day passes
2. 10% discount (though you can get your own by doing this if you haven’t already)
3. Free Bags VIP luggage delivery (you can read my post about the service here)
American has introduced a new system of Elite Rewards.

In order to enter, you just need to leave a comment on this post with what amenities your perfect airline lounge would have and why – anything from a celebrity chef menu, to what bath products they’d carry in the shower suites (if it has showers), what kind of spa treatments you could get – the sky is the limit. Just make it interesting and concise, and let us know which of the 3 possible Elite Rewards you would want to receive as your prize.
You have until 5pm ET Sunday to enter and we’ll pick a winner at random after that and announce it on Monday. Good luck!
