It’s easy to become a member, just register for the promotion by clicking on the Register button below using with promotion code QPM11. Then purchase your new annual Admirals Club membership by clicking on the Purchase Now button below by September 30, 2011 to earn 3,000 AAdvantage miles.
According to the offer page at AA.com:
This offer is valid only for the recipients of the AAdvantage August Quarterly Print Mailing Newsletter.
Last year I purchased a new Admirals Club membership using a similar bonus miles promotion code that was posted in the Admirals Club discounts master thread at FlyerTalk. That offer, like this one, was a targeted promotion and even though I had never received the offer I still received the bonus miles when I used the promo code. Your results may vary so be aware that you might not receive the miles if you didn’t receive this offer.
Also in the forums, unavaca posted this $100 discount on a new membership when you use promo code ACDM2Q. It too is probably a targeted offer, so no guarantee that it will work if you didn’t receive a promotion email.
Million Miler Status
American Airlines is moving forward with their plan to only count base miles earned on American Airlines flights or flights operated by one of their partners when calculating Million Mile status. This change goes in effect December 1. If you’re trying to earn enough miles to make Million Miler status before then, visit Million Mile Secrets for a helpful list of strategies.
