Free American Airlines Platinum Status Offer & Challenge

1/9/20 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 through April 19, 2020.  You must register by January 30, 2020. If you meet the terms of the challenge you can keep it till 1/31/21. Thanks to reader Josh L. for sending this to me.

American Airlines sent an email to my wife with a targeted offer to earn free Platinum Pro status just for registering by 6/25/19.  The status is good until 9/25/19 and there is a challenge attached to keep it until 1/31/21.

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

If you did receive this offer for Platinum status you should definitely get on it before it expires on 6/25. The bad thing about American Airlines status is it doesn’t work on award tickets unless you have Executive Platinum.  That doesn’t work well for us since American doesn’t have great coverage out of Detroit.

I will have her take it for sure so that we could at least avoid close in booking fees.  I will also status match to Delta since that status would be a lot more useful for us and our travels.

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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
