Free American AAdvantage Elite Challenge Offer, Status through January 2018 incld Exec Platinum

by Adam

Wow, I’ was totally excited when I received this emailed offer from American last Thursday…especially nicely timed with the changes announced earlier this week:

AA Elite Status Offer

The offer requires registration for the challenge (for free) by June 8th using code HVC2Q and gives you until September 9th to qualify with American, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, or Qantas. Gold requires 7,000 EQMs, Platinum 12,500 EQMs, and Executive Platinum 35,000 EQMs (yes, Exec Plat is included as well). Status will be good through January 31, 2018. This is unfortunately a targeted offer and it seems that some (like me) who received the offer were not even meant to be targeted. When attempting to register online, I received an error message.  I called AAdvantage customer service who says I was not targeted, but that they’ve received multiple other calls from customers who also received the email but were not targeted. I was unfortunately not presented any options besides sending a formed letter or fax with a print out of the email and an explanation of my frustrations.  I’ll definitely be doing that!

Anyone else receive this fast track offer…and register successfully?
