This offer was originally posted in a thread in the FlyerTalk forum. I wasn’t going to mention it because it’s a targeted offer and I figure that anyone that qualifies has probably already received an email from American, but decided that since some people may have overlooked it in their inbox that I should go ahead and say something.
American and Delta are competing for trans-atlantic passengers in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts or Rhode Island. So far they’ve been competing on price and some amazingly low airfares have been available in these markets.
American just escalated the battle and is rolling out Double Elite Qualifying Miles and a big discount:
Reach AAdvantage elite status faster and earn a 20% discount on future travel to Europe!

Award: Double Elite Qualifying Miles
20% Discount Promotion Code
Bonus Code: LHREQ

20% Discount Code: Book and fly between March 29, 2011, and May 31, 2011

For a limited time, you can reach AAdvantage elite status faster with double elite qualifying miles every time you book and fly round-trip between Boston or Miami and London Heathrow on either American Airlines or British Airways on a purchased ticket in full-fare Economy Class or above between now and August 15, 2011.

If you’re thinking moving to one of these states in order to qualify for the bonus, don‘t:
Offer valid only for AAdvantage members with an address on file with AAdvantage Marketing Programs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, or Florida at the time the double elite qualifying miles or discount promotion code is issued.
It’s been a busy week for at aadvantageGeek world headquarters, I’m looking forward to the weekend. Hope you have a good one!
