Last week, American Airlines sent out a targeted opportunity on LinkedIn with a fast track to elite status! It received a good deal of attention on multiple travel blogs, and also over on FlyerTalk. The fast track opportunity offered travelers a chance to earn Gold, Platinum or Executive Platinum status by flying a significantly reduced number of miles between September 14 and December 23, 2015.
American Airlines Fast Track LinkedIn Promotion
The targeted opportunity allowed you to receive status through February 28, 2017 if you flew a certain number of miles before December 23, 2015. For Gold, it was 5,000, for Platinum 9,000, and for Executive Platinum 25,000 miles flown.
As a trial, I registered for the promotion before the page was pulled by AA. I was not targeted on LinkedIn for this promotion. This afternoon, I received an email confirmation stating that I was on the fast track to AA Elite Status!
Were you targeted for this promotion? Did you receive a confirmation email from AA?
