American Airlines is offering California-based small- and medium-sized businesses who enroll in the American Airlines Business ExtrAA program, up to 20,000 Business ExtrAA bonus points–enough for 10 economy PlanAAhead awards valid for travel in the continental U.S., Canada and Mexico. The bonus is targeted for California businesses only to support American’s expansion in Los Angeles. With Business ExtrAA, companies accrue points when their employees travel for business on American Airlines, American Eagle or American Connection operated flights and include the company’s Business ExtrAA account number in their reservations. Employees can earn American Airlines AAdvantage miles on their personal frequent flyer accounts when traveling under their company’s Business ExtrAA number, so both the company and the individual traveler benefit.
To earn the first award ticket, companies must enroll in the Business ExtrAA program using promotion code BIGCAL and have any one of their employees fly one qualifying roundtrip using the company’s new account number during the offer period, through June 30, 2011. Newly enrolled companies that spend $15,000 or more on qualifying flights within the offer period will earn another 8,000 Business ExtrAA bonus points, equivalent to an additional four roundtrip travel awards. And companies that spend a total of $30,000 or more during the offer period will earn another 10,000 Business ExtrAA bonus points, equivalent to an additional five roundtrip travel awards.
