MODERATOR NOTE:


2/14/12 - AA has sent out emails summarizing DEQAA bonus EQM that have credited through 1/28/12, although at this point, all double EQM should have credited through the end of the promotion, 1/31/12.

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

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

1/25/12 - KKR has developed a way of using Microsoft Excel to hypothesize your Double EQM earnings here: Tracking Method for DEQAA and DEQ11.

1/18/12 - The second round of bonus EQM have posted for flights through at least 1/14/12. [Post]

1/13/12 - The first round of bonus EQM have posted for flights through at least 1/5/12. [Post] Note that there are NO line items posted in your AAdvantage account when this bonus posts (because there are no associated RDMs), so you must keep careful track of your EQM after each flight to determine when DEQAA miles post.

• Several FTers will be doing MRs in January; here's a list of the meet-up threads in CommunityBuzz:

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I stack this with other promotions?
A: According to terms and conditions of the promo: "This offer can be combined with other AAdvantage promotions."

Q: Really? Can it even be stacked with the DEQ11 promo for DFW/ORD-LAX-SFO?
A: AmericanAirlines as reported back and said YES! Link to post, further clarification from AmericanAirlines in another post

Q: Do I still get double EQMs on codeshare flights?
A: According to the terms and conditions: "AAdvantage promotion is valid for all travel on purchased, published fare tickets on American Airlines or American Eagle marketed and operated flights..." - i.e., flights with AA flight numbers that on AA metal. (Example: AA flight number with a flight being "operated by British Airways" would NOT qualify for this promotion.)

Q: If I have a flight that is schedule to depart on 31 Jan 2012 but lands on 1 Feb, does that flight still qualify?
A: Yes. The scheduled departure date is what's important - not when you land or when you actually take off (if your flight is delayed).

Q: Eeek! I already have a bunch of travel booked for December and/or January. Will I still be able to get double EQMs if I register now?
A: Yes. According to the terms and conditions: "This offer does not require travel to be booked during a specific time frame; travel booked prior to the start date of this promotion is eligible." Just make sure you register before you actually travel!

Q: So how will this promotion affect my elite qualifying POINTS/SEGMENTS (EQP/EQS), Miles Toward Elite Upgrades (MTEU), or Million Miler counter?
A: It won't! This promotion only increments Elite Qualifying MILES (EQM).

What does this mean for LAX-ORD if I signed up for DEQ11 and have EXP?

I doubt this will be the last one for 2012 (at at least until Ch.11 ends).

Now if only the double EQM from my ORD-SFO from early november would post

Knew this would be coming about sooner or later due to the BK. There will probably be more next year as well.

This offer can be combined with other AAdvantage promotions.
If this STACKS with the SFO/LAX-ORD DEQM I will be foaming at the mouth

According to the T&C's... "Bonus elite qualifying miles earned in conjunction with flight activity during 2011 will count towards your 2012 membership year; bonus elite qualifying miles earned in conjunction with flight activity during 2012 will count toward your 2013 membership year."

Also: "This offer can be combined with other AAdvantage promotions."

I doubt that would make it "Double-Double". You will likely receive DEQM for LAX-ORD which will count towards 2012 EXP status. If you fly on DEQAA on or after Jan 1, it will count towards 2013 EXP it seems.

Not bad.

I was already booked solid until mid February with ORD-SFO. This will be extra. Might actually book another trip this weekend.

If it was meant to be targeted, it is not anymore since the link has been posted here.

I was able to register while logged into my account (I'm PLT), and I also tried in a different browser while not logged in. The page and registration also worked via the link posted by LRD. Seems anyone can register. I did not receive an email on this (yet).
