Earlier this year American announced that they were eliminating the traditional soft landing policy for AAdvantage Elites who fail to requalify for status.
So if you’re worried that you might not be able to reach the status finish line for this year, there’s still hope.
American just announced a new way to save (or even boost) your status.
Reaching for elite status
Introducing new ways to meet your elite status goal starting in January
The 2014 AAdvantage elite status qualification year ends on December 31, and we know some of you may not quite reach your goal by the end of the year.
That’s why, starting in January, we’re offering you two ways to elevate your status.
Boost: For the first time ever, if you end the year close to AAdvantage Executive Platinum, Platinum, or Gold status but don’t quite make it, you can boost to the next level.
Renew: If you are an elite status member in 2013 but aren’t able to retain your status by the end of the year, you are eligible for a status renewal.
AAdvantage Executive Platinum
This new Boost/Renew offer is actually a pretty smart idea: it let’s American earn some extra money, it’s helps current elites who are unable to retain status for next year, and it manages to still protect the value of American’s AAdvantage Elite program!
