Q4 2020 Flights Count as 2021 Elite Qualification Miles
The most interesting, to me, is that all of your flights between now and the end of the year will count towards your 2021 status. For example, if you flew 5,000 miles now and 15,000 next year, you’d have Gold until the beginning or 2023.
You might be asking why I didn’t say 25,000 miles, and that is because the tier requirements for 2021 are also lower:
Use AAdvantage credit card spend to get waivers on EQDs
If you have an American Airlines credit card and spend $30,000, you can ignore EQD requirements for Gold, Platinum and Platinum Pro status (but not Executive Platinum).
Platinum Pro and Executive Platinum members rewarded for their loyalty with a new rewards menu.
New “bonus rewards” system for Platinum Pro and Executive Platinum members
They say it will include systemwide upgrades, Admirals Club day passes, bonus AAdvantage miles – but details are not yet available.
And if this post helped you, please consider sharing it!
You can find credit cards that best match your spending habits and bonus categories at Your Best Credit Cards.
