    Starting March 1, 2012 through May 31, 2012 we will select two winners each month (for a total of six winners); each lucky winner will receive his/her choice of several rewards.
    • The first winner will be the person with the highest number of eligible segments flown in the month
    • The second winner will be the person with the highest number of eligible base miles flown in the month
    Each winner will be able to choose one reward from the list below:
    • Two (2) Systemwide Upgrades

    Who wants ConciergeKeySM status?!
    At the end of the three-month period, two overall winners will be selected and will be awarded ConciergeKey status.
    • The first overall winner will be the person with the highest number of eligible segments flown during the entire three-month period
    • The second overall winner will be the person with the highest number of eligible base miles flown during the entire three-month period
    Individual Challenge

    How About More Miles?!
    Starting March 1, 2012, we will keep track of your flight activity on American Airlines, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection carrier for three months, and compare it to last year's activity from March 1, 2011 through May 31, 2011.
    • If you increase your travel by 100% or more versus the prior year period, then you will receive triple the base miles flown during the offer period
    • If you increase your travel by 50% or more versus the prior year, then you will receive double the base miles flown during the offer period
    All MegaDo participants will be pre-registered for these promotions, so all you need to do is fly! Challenge winners will be announced monthly.

    Suggestion - in case some want to do LAX Sat night runs - would all could meet at an LAX hotel on a Sat night. So this thread can be used for meet ups.

    It's a great offer -- but since I flew 25K miles, I'd have to fly 50 to qualify and that is too much. Interestingly, if they would just give me triple miles for this period as a reward for taking the onemegado, I'd fly probably 30K, but since there is no extra incentive, I'll sit on the sidelines for this one.

    I do appreciate the gesture, though.

    the gateway is certainly the best meet up -- great rates and upgrades and best lounge/restaurant

    So how much flying are people planning having during this period? I'm looking at about 5k in March, 15k in April, and maybe another 5-10k in May.

    The EXP Elite Rewards are the same as last year. I'm guessing the Plat and Gold levels are as well.

    So far my only AA travel this quarter is milage redemption so I'll be dragging down the group total. Will, this means you really need to step it up and go with the 120k plan as an offset measure ;)

    Does anyone know when the triple miles will post? Is it at the end of each month or at the end of the entire promo period? Thanks! :)

    My money would be on at least once a month but no telling really. AA sweeps are historically pretty reliable in final outcome but not so much in timing. The OWMD postings were handled very promptly though I suspect those were manual.
