Last February, I received an offer to fast track to AA Elite status, which I didn’t participate. A few months late in June, I was offered free Platinum status, which I was very surprised since I only booked one flight last year with American Airlines. I get free checked bags benefit being AA credit cardmember, and I get free access to Main Cabin Extra and Preferred seats being an Alaska MVP Gold last year, so those two Platinum benefits did not interest me at the time. But I did get twenty 500-mile upgrade certificates which will sit in my account until I can take advantage of them. Sadly I wasn’t targeted this time.
