Tomorrow American AAdvantage Launches Holiday Gift For Every Member And New Targeted Promos

On Wednesday, December 2nd American AAdvantage members can go to the Promotion Center in their mileage accounts to:

  • Find their free gift
  • Register for a targeted promotion

Members will “virtually unwrap gifts” in their account that may include AAdvantage miles, vouchers for free extra legroom seats, and airport lounge passes, the particulars of which are “based on how much an AAdvantage member has engaged with American” according to the airline.

Registering will also unlock a targeted promotion for flying at the start of 2021. An American spokesperson explains, “For the early 2021 flying promotion, members at all levels will receive an incentive to fly a certain number of segments in January and February to receive awards like bonus miles, complimentary seats or other awards.”

In addition, everyone who registers receives a sweepstakes entry for 6 prizes of 500,000 miles plus one of:

  • 4 night stay for 2 people at a Hyatt all-inclusive Ziva or Zilara resort (5 winners)
  • 3 night stay for them for up to 4 people at Universal Orlando Resort plus park passes (1 winner)

Anyone that isn’t a program member yet but joins by December 16th receives a gift and sweepstakes entry.

Once you’ve registered please share what you got – both your gift, and the details of your targeted promotion.

  1. I honestly don’t know if this does anything for loyalty or increased business but I guess they think it does.

    My company decided to give everyone a gift box. I think people would have been happier with $10 since the box was one of those typical collection of nuts, crackers and maybe cheese. We gave it to a neighbor who could use/appreciate it.

  2. Must have been an error, but my gift already posted.

    It entitles me to one soft drink delivered to my seat, by an FA under age 70, under 200 pounds and with a smile.

    Going for great…

  3. 250 miles as a gift. Heck, I’ll take it.
