    And here's how Ms. Maya put it in her inimitable way! (My only problem in the wording is that my e-mail talked about hoping it helped me re-qualify for Platinum. Yes, I am Platinum, but lifetime, so clearly the computer that generated the e-mails wasn't programmed perfectly. Other than that, love the e-mail!)

    Qualify For AAdvantage® Elite Status Faster

    Dear <Kansaskeith>,

    As my last act as outgoing president of the AAdvantage® program, and as a great introduction to the new president - Suzanne Rubin, we decided to give you what you've been asking for (yes, I heard you already! Now, drumroll, please…) Double Elite Qualifying Miles for travel worldwide on American Airlines!

    Earn Double Elite-Qualifying Miles For Travel
    Between December 13, 2011, And January 31, 2012

    We hope this will give you the boost you need to re-qualify for AAdvantage Platinum® status or get 2012 off to a great start! Simply register prior to travel and you'll be on your way!

    From everyone at American, thank you for flying with us. We look forward to seeing you on board soon.

    Sincerely,

    Maya Leibman

    This makes me quite happy. Now I just need to look at some good same day or weekend turn fares. And hopefully the charter flights for the megado will count too :)

    What a fabulous way for Maya to close out her time with AAdvantage and Suzanne to start hers!! This will leave me just shy of PLT with only 1,424 EQM to go. Looks like I need to (come up with a creative excuse for the wife) (go visit a client) look for a long-lost family member to go see for the holidays. :D

    And this makes me happy, because I also had a 10% off code for any AA trip come in my email today. With a little costco work, I could possibly be pulling off a great steal on EQM. Now to start begging SWUs off people for the international flights this will require

    Thank you, AA!! After missing a BA flight last week, I was 184 miles short. With LHR ORD SNA DFW LHR over Christmas, I'll be good!

    Nice, I see a couple MIA-LAX turns in my Jan future. Just as I was considering jumping to UA they (AA) keep bringing me back. Who l knows.....EXP this year maybe. (will require a couple more of these DEQM promos though.)

    Well, with certain things, I'm looking at possibly being over the qualification threshold for Platinum by the end of January (and that is only adding 4 same day turns over what I already have booked)

    Yikes, too many typos. Meant to say EXP qual next year maybe. The ups and downs of using an iPhone I guess.

    Just to clarify for those who haven't read heavily into the T&Cs, it looks like this is EQM only, no extra RDM.

    Also seems most people in the interwebs agree that this is NOT stackable with the existing DEQM offer in LAX/SFO due to that promos T&Cs.

    Double RDM would presumably be double plus the elite bonus.

    Yes, but where is this Double RDM coming from? I guess I'm lost on what you're talking about. :confused:

    You said (paraphrasing) that it's double EQM, not double RDM.

    mowogo said that everyone here already gets double RDM. I assume s/he was referring to the elite bonus all/most people here get.

    So I tried to clarify (failed) that your mention of double RDM would presumably something on top of the doubling of RDMs due to elite status.

    Not sure if that clarified anything but I am tired :) And why am I here anyway -- I don't even fly AA. Come on, UA... match! :)

    Gotcha, that makes sense, but....

    Lost me here! hehe.

    I just want to make sure that it's clear there is no double RDM via this promo for those who are reading for info. :D
