MODERATOR'S NOTE


DEQ11 goes through 31 Mar 2012; AA's promo tracking also has it as DEQ12; DEQ12 is not a new / separate promo. See Bonus DEQ12: registerable, no details - what is it?

12/14/2011 - AmericanAirlines has stated that DEQ11 is combinable/stackable with the DEQAA promotion :

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/ameri...an-2012-a.html
AmericanAirlines' Post 238 confirming combinability
AmericanAirlines' Post 351 with an example itinerary and credits under both promotions
Several FTers will be doing MRs in January; here's a list of the meet-up threads in CommunityBuzz:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/commu...t-january.html

12/20/2011 - The first batch of double EQM has reportedly posted for flights thru at least Dec 15, although bonus RDM have apparently not yet posted.

12/22/2011 - AAdvantage Customer Service has stated that RDM should post separately within 4-72 hours.

12/23/2011 - LoneTree has confirmed receiving double EQM and double RDM for the ORD-LAX and SFO-ORD segments in an ORD-LAX-SFO-ORD circle itinerary.

This is in contrast to the Nov 2010 - Feb 2011 LASF2 double EQM promotion, in which open jaw and circle trips were expressly ineligible and travel had to be either DFW-LAX in both directions or DFW-SFO in both directions, without mixing.

The May - Aug 2011 DECSL double EQM promotion expressly allowed open jaw itineraries (as does the current promotion), but it is not clear whether or not any FlyerTalkers actually flew such itineraries. The Apr - Aug 2011 DEQSL double EQM promotion did not specify whether open jaw itineraries were eligible or ineligible.

1/12/12 - The second batch of double EQM has reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru at least 1/5/12 and part of 1/6/12. [Post] [Post]

1/18/12 - The third batch of double EQM has reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru at least 1/14/12 and part of 1/15/12. Double RDM continue to post separately, and later than double EQM. Remember, only bonus RDM credits, not bonus EQM credits, will be indicated by a line item in your AAdvantage account summary. [Post] [Post]

1/19/12 - Double EQM have reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru 1/17/12 while double RDM have reportedly posted for flights thru part of 1/6/12. [Post]

1/25/12 - Double EQM reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru sometime on 1/21/12 and sweeps claimed to occur weekly on Tuesdays now by AA employee. [Post]

1/25/12 - KKR develops way of using Excel to hypothesize your DEQM earnings here: Tracking Method for DEQAA and DEQ11.

2/1/12 - Double EQM reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru sometime on 1/28/12. Flights thru the preceding Saturdays appear to be posting on Tues/Wed overnight. [Post]

2/8/12 - Double EQM AND Double RDM have reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru sometime on 2/4/12. [Post]

2/13/12 - Above notes have been updated to clarify that the entire itinerary (e.g., roundtrip) must be completed prior to the cutoff date in order to post in the following sweep window. [Post]

2/14/12 - AA has sent out emails summarizing DEQ11 bonus EQM that have posted thru 1/28/12, although bonus EQM and RDM have posted beyond that date already.

2/14/12 - Double EQM have reportedly posted for completed itineraries thru sometime on 2/11/12. [Post]

3/9/12 - This promotion has been extended through June 30, 2012 and ORD-SNA has been added to the list of segments eligible for double miles when booked and flown after March 9, 2012.

That was fast! Just got the alert about this from DealFinder and was about to post about it.

It looks like trips that include SFO-DFW/ORD segments will be eligible based on past experiences, with only those segments counting. We usually fly out of SJC, so this may not do much for us, but had to register anyway.

Cheers.

Damn and this comes on the heals of the $49 fares one way that just finished up. I wish this promo had been with that one as i would have ended the year as exp instead of plat. at least can start thinking of next year.

Just thinking out loud. would the DEQM be awarded for a trip like DFW-LAX-SEA-LAX-DFW for the DFW-LAX //LAX-DFW portion or not

That's not what the T&Cs say, BUT I certainly hope you are correct!

Well, it allows open jaws, and doesn't exclude onward segments (doesn't indicate that the flights are only between those airports). In the past, similar wording has allowed, for example SFO-ORD-LGA, with the double miles only on the SFO-ORD portions.

Cheers.

Damn, I have two more upcoming RTs to solidify EXP, but I could have done it within one if I had waited!

At least I'll get a running head start on guaranteeing EXP for 2013!

What? Again?

Also, I noticed in the ToS, it says: "Reservations containing open jaws are eligible."

Does this mean that SFO-DFW-FLL-(open jaw)-JFK-DFW-SFO will work? Or what about SFO-DFW-DCA-LGA-DFW-SFO? (of course, only for the SFO-DFW-SFO segments)

I have a RT from DFW-LAX next week (that I booked yesterday) and I've been on hold with AAdvantage CS and Res for the past 10 min to add this to my trip and nobody can find any information about this promo...

Will update if it changes, but I've talked to 3 different people so far.

I think chances are slim you'll get the double miles for it, but best of luck.

"There is no such promotion", after speaking to 4 different people.

<-- lost 15 minutes and nothing gained.

Will try back later after some potential employee messaging has taken place...

Which do you think is more likely, someone at AA web services is playing a very well designed prank on us, or that the agents just haven't been informed of this JUST announced promotion?
