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.
