It seems that I receive an email every few weeks from American with an opportunity to purchase back my Platinum status which expired in February. The emails started in February and offered Platinum status for $1,199. I’m currently an AAdvantage Lifetime Gold member.
After multiple emails at the $1,199 price point, an April email had this title – “A Special Discount on Platinum Status” and offered a $50 discount on the the purchase, bringing the price down to $1,149
This month I’ve received two emails with an extra $100 discount, pricing the Platinum status upgrade at $1,099.
Of course, as each month passes, that’s one less month of using the status as the expiration date is February 2017. Platinum status for $999 in June?
