A few months ago, Gary from View From The Wing had posted an offer through AA’s Business ExtrAA program for Free American Airlines Gold Status after only one round trip flight.
Although I typically don’t fly AA unless it is on an Award Ticket, I do own a business and it was hard to pass up such an awesome offer, so I signed up for the program!
For those of you not familiar with American Airline’s Business ExtrAA program, essentially it is a loyalty program for Small Businesses. AA wants Small Businesses to fly exclusively with them. In exchange for that loyalty, AA gives the company “points” based on how much revenue they spend. The company can then use these “points” for free flights for their employees or other perks. These “points” are on top of any miles that the employees earn for flying AA, so it is a win-win for both employees and the employers.
The cool thing about Business ExtrAA is that you don’t even have to be a business to sign up. So if you ever fly AA, I strongly suggest you sign up below so you can earn even more miles when you book your flights.
“As a Business ExtrAA member, your company may earn Business ExtrAA points each time you fly on American Airlines, American Eagle® or AmericanConnection® carriers using an eligible ticket. Your company will receive one point for each $10 you spend to fly on published fares during the month. Your company will earn double credit for every eligible itinerary that originates from one of over 200 airports [excludes Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Miami (MIA)]. American will calculate your company’s flown revenue to determine the number of points to be placed into your company’s Business ExtrAA account. There is no limit to the number of points your company can earn! “
I found an 500 point offer for signing up with Business ExtrAA. If that link below doesn’t work, try using code FLYAA. 500 points is the equivalent of 6,250 free miles! If you have a better sign up offer, please leave a comment.
Remember it is free to sign up, you can still use whatever credit card you want to pay for your flight, and you still earn miles on your AA flights!
Anyways, I hadn’t paid any real attention to the Business Extra’s program until I got this offer in my Inbox.
2,000 “points” = AA Round Trip Saver Award Ticket, so doing this promotion will get me 1,000 “points” which is half way to a free Domestic Saver Ticket.
Also the “points” earned via Business ExtrAA can be redeemed for Flight Upgrades, Admiral Club Memberships, and even Gold Status for 2,400 points.
The offer is “targeted” but there is no code mentioned or a unique link, so I am fairly certain this is open to anyone. Link is below for the 1,000 point offer.
