    AA has activated the annual elite status buy back page: LINK.

    Am I eligible to renew my elite status?
    If you are currently an AAdvantage Platinum or AAdvantage Gold member, and you have flown at least two elite qualifying segments during 2012, and did not participate in this offer last year, then you are eligible to renew your status.

    How do I renew my status?
    We will reach out to eligible members on January 30 and share how they can enjoy another year of elite status benefits. Members will have until May 15, 2013 to renew status through this offer.
    If you are eligible to renew your elite status, you may also revisit this page after January 30 and click on the 'Renew Now' button and follow simple instructions that will guide you through the process.

    Not much of a discount if you were close. Would have been cheaper to an MR and earn some RDMs if you were close...

    almost always is cheaper to do an MR or two but end of year time crunch can mean one doesn't have time to do those MR(s). I know I've been in that situation and had to bang out the miles in Jan of the new year to keep status.

    It would be nice if I could "renew" from G to PL ;)

    You can. It's called a "PLT challenge" ;)

    Yeah, too bad it's on EQP instead of EQM.
