    EDIT TO CLARIFY:

    Seems AA is offering TWO promos, one for elites, one for non-elites.

    The basics....

    For elites: DEQM, DEQP, and DRDM available through the end of the year (12/31/2012) LINK

    For non-elites: DEQM, DEQP available through the end of the year, DRDM only available from Nov 16-Nov26. LINK

    Everyone (who registers) will earn DEQM/DEQP through the end of the year. If you are already elite you will earn DRDM through the end of the year. If you are non-elite you will earn DRDMs only November 16-26. A bit complicated but that's the gist of it.

    Yup, quite complicated. AA released the promo but didn't immediately identify that there were two offers on the table with the same promo code.

    Well, looks like I will requalify for Plat without too much extra flying. Makes me glad I had already scheduled my fights on AA to get a first class upgrade before the Megado

    Updated the OP for clarity now that the dual promo aspect has been fleshed out.

    Interestingly, AA confirmed on Twitter that if a non-elite transitions to an elite during the promo, they become eligible for the elite promo:

    I guess that's one benefit of having the single promo code for everyone. :cool:

    Great news. As always, don't forget to register.
    BTW the registration process is crawling, as if AA.com was under some major hacker attack.:)

    Does this help with qualifying for 2013-2014 year. In particular the statement
    "Bonus elite qualifying miles or points will count towards your 2013 membership year."
    This confusing statement does not mean - bonus points will count towards your 2013 qualifying year?

    I see this being good that it does allow for double qualifying points. With the other promo for the high fares to europe earning big bonus miles, this could stack well. A couple of "I" fares or "B" fares to Europe and you could double the already 1.5 points and easily get Executive Platinum AND get a boat load of bonus miles....

    Does anyone know will an "I" fare for example earn 1.5 points + 1.0 bonus or would it earn 1.5 points + 1.5 points?

    The 2013 program year level is based on the status you earn in 2012. In other words this is for status now through January 2014.

    I know this promo would make a lot more people if it ran 1 month later, say December 1 to January 31st.

    So this promo started NOV 1, but I didn't get the email until today NOV 2. Do I get bonus miles for my MIA/SFO flight on NOV 1?

    re 2012 vs 2013 tweet from @AmericanAir:

    'they count toward your 2012 totals in qualifying for status for 2013."

    They use the same language in just about every DEQM they offer. It confuses people to no end each time.
