HVCAA Promo (targeted) Double Miles/EXP / Executive Platinum for 25,000 base miles

A friend of mine received the following e-mail today.

It appears to be a targeted offer but I was able to register (I know that doesn't mean I will receive the bonus). The "required miles" chart wouldn't copy but it was 10,000 base miles for Platinum and 25,000 base miles for EXP:

Dear xxxx xxxxxx,

of you. That's why we're offering two exciting promotions, exclusively for you.

Within a few seconds, I got an email thanking me for registering for the HVCAA promotion.

I will know within 4 weeks whether it worked or not!

Just to restate a key point, this is effectively a "Plat/EXP Challenge" that only qualifies for less than 1 year. The 3X promo was a much better deal for EXP Lite's as we are now called. For others, a great deal, and in past years, it would have been an awesome promo by any standard.

That part alone makes me want to register. I bet by May there will be a lot of registered EXPs who have already re-qualified through 2/28/2014.

Sigh...another promo that's swelling the ranks...Considering that the promo period is almost 4 months long, the adjusted earnings rate to hit EXP is only about 80k EQMs annually. That bar is just too low.

If folks can't make EXP this year, they never will.

That's my point, I'm currently EXP, will re-qualify before May and am still tempted to register in the hope of getting extra RDMs, though I shouldn't be eligible.

High Value Customer AA? I'm tempted to register just to see. I don't see any harm in doing it, i.e. I doubt it will mess anything up. Chance of gain>>>>chance of loss, even if both are pretty small.

I see now what you are getting at, but I don't think this is stackable on what you already get. This email was obviously sent to some elite flyer on a different airline. Hence the HighValueCustomerAA name for it.

I just got to EXP via 50K BIS miles in January. I suppose it'd be too much to hope for that I could sign up for this, do another marathon and get 8 more SWUs.

That would be a hysterical IT oversight, but I suppose it would not be impossible. You just qualified for the 2013 membership year (which also gives status for 2012), this promotion lets people qualify for the 2012 membership year, and should come with 8 SWUs that expire a year earlier than the ones you just earned (for those who are eligible/targeted).

I seem to remember reports of people getting 8 SWUs when completing their EXP challenge, then another 8 when crossing 100K miles.

Now THAT's really tempting. And I could get 25k EQMs if I book a trip I have on hold and another in addition to my currently booked one, all easily justifiable. Decisions, decisions.

Didn't they have DEQM for most of 2009? It was probably easier then to make EXP than it is now, albeit it's still pretty easy to make it now.

25K base miles would be easier than any other recent promo, even easier than last year's EXP challenge (which required 25K points), though it lasts a full year less than the "normal" 100 Kmile/Kpoint/segment EXP.
