You probably noticed that Boarding Area was offline for some of the day yesterday. It was due to the same Amazon Web Services (AWS) outage that took Reddit, GitHub, and several other websites. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending upon how you look at it) nothing too exciting happened with AAdvantage or AA yesterday. About the only real news item was that Netflix is going to end their AAdvantage Miles signup bonus after November 14, 2012.
Anyway, check your inbox for this new targeted offer from American’s Business ExtrAA small business loyalty program:
KEEP CALM & FLY FREE.
Earn a Flight Award fast from Business ExtrAA
When you register and your company meets the travel requirements through December 31, 2012, you can earn up to 25,000 AAdvantage miles for yourself and 2,000 Business ExtrAA points for your company – enough for a round trip MileSAAver and PlanAAhead award (fees of up to $10 apply per award).
That’s a flight award for you and a flight award for your company!
Here’s how it works:
• To earn 500 Business ExtrAA bonus points and 2,500 AAdvantage bonus miles you must register for this promotion by December 31 2012.
• To earn an additional 500 bonus points and 10,000 bonus miles you must book and fly one round-trip using your company’s Business ExtrAA account number by December 31, 2012.
• To earn an additional 1,000 bonus points and 12,500 bonus miles you must book and fly two additional round-trips (for a total of 3 round-trips) using your company’s Business ExtrAA account number by December 31, 2012.
• Minimum round-trip fare of $250 applies for qualification.
This is definitely a targeted offer:
