Free American Airlines Platinum Status Offer & Challenge

7/15/20 Update: More people have been targeted today for Gold and Platinum status.  Be sure to check your American Airlines account under the promotion section.

The new offer gives you status for three months once activated.  You must register by November 1, 2020. If you meet the terms of the challenge you can keep it till 1/31/22. Thanks to reader Josh L. for sending this to me.

I received a similar offer a few months ago for Gold status.  I turned that Gold status with American into Silver status with Delta.

The Offer

Register for this exclusive offer to enjoy free American Airlines AAdvantage® Platinum status for 3 months after activation. You must register by November 1, 2020.

Status Challenge

There is also a status challenge with this offer. Keep your status through January 31, 2022, by earning:

  • $1,400 Elite Qualifying Dollars (EQDs) and 14 Elite qualifying segments or
  • $1,400 EQDs and 10,500 Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs)

If you did receive this offer for Platinum status you should definitely get on it before it expires on November 1st. It would be best to wait until just before a scheduled flight or right before the end of the offer to activate it.

The bad thing about American Airlines status is it doesn’t work on award tickets unless you have Executive Platinum.

Did you get this offer? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I received the Platinum offer, but I won’t be flying until September of next year.
    Should I not register for this challenge, and hope to get another before September?
    If I register now, will that prevent me from getting a challenge offer later?

  2. I thought you couldnt match your “given” status from AA to delta since you didnt actually earn the status. Dowsnt delra state in order to match to a competitor you had to have earned the status?

    • It worked for me last time. I took a screen shot of my status and miles from my main log in page. They approved it.

  3. I didn’t receive the Plat pro in an email but did receive the gold…is there a way I am able to receive the plat pro?

  4. Do the EQD and/or EQM have to be on AA? I have upcoming C class flights on QR, which would get me 90% of the way to the EQD, and 65% of the way to the EQM. It wouldn’t be hard to reach the thresholds from there.

  5. Same as @jasonalanmorgan. Flew to London in Main Cabin Extra. It expired May 15 and I wish we could get the challenge again but know we won’t. I didn’t have enough travel planned to meet it, could possibly do it now

  6. Mark, I had Plat Pro from the last challenge and was able to book the Main Cabin Extra seats for my family on award bookings.

    • Boom! Just got this offer and have flights to Jamaica coming up. Main Cabin Extra for freezy. Please and thank you!

      Also, assuming your ebay name is the same, I was totally bidding on your Yadier Molina Funko Pop! today, lol.

  7. 2021 as further down he writes

    There is also a status challenge with this offer. Keep your status through January 31, 2021, by earning:

  8. Can we have a link? I usually don’t get the emails but the links work. There should be links for Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Pro
