● DEQM / Double Elite Qualifying Miles and Points for registered AA flyers toward your 2012 earned EQM/EQP; AA Elite status members also earn "double flight miles" (RDM)
● Eligible flights (AA, Eagle and AA Connection marketed & operated) Nov 1 - Dec 31, 2012, retroactive to Nov 1

● 55k requalifiers from UA are specifically excluded from bonus EQM for status renewal (link to post)

Register for promo code AATHX here (and see T&Cs etc.).

RDM/EQM/EQP Posting: Double RDM generally post at the same time as the corresponding flights and are shown in your account line items. HOWEVER, Double EQM and Double EQP are posting in batches, approximately 1 week later, possibly on Saturdays, and this credit is NOT reflected in the account line items, so you'll need to keep track of your EQM and EQP counters independently as usual.
Enjoy, and see the poll above this WikiPost!

So, with the super cheap F/J fares now earning 3 EQP per mile, is anyone points-running to qualify for Elite Rewards?

Hmm, now I only need to fly 36,000 miles before the end of the year to hit that EXP status...

Honey, if you're reading this, I'm leaving you with the twins while I fly to Japan. Twice.

No rage or joy here. This is the first year I am hitting Exec Plat (after 13 years of Platinum and LT Plat earlier this year) on points without any bonuses. Amusing this showed up right as I hit Exec Plat. Maybe it will help me to get to 125k - but unlikely since most of my travel left this year is AA Codeshare.
Thanks,

Well, it will surely get us to 125K EQM, but our ratio is so low that 125K EQP ain't happening. Hey...know what you get for 125K EQM? EXP!

Cheers.

I've already hit EXP for next year and I am going places for the remainder of the year where AA/OneWorld is not very convenient (ie - New Zealand), so I am not flying AA for the rest of the year. I still registered just in case

started the year wondering if I'd be even going for requal ... between change in work contract and promotions, going to end the year with over 170K EQM ... if only they could roll-over

I have a question. Hopefully someone here can help me. I am Platinum and would like to attempt to reach Executive Platinum for the next calendar year.

I’m thinking that the easiest way for me to do this is by earning Points not Miles through the Double Elite Qualifying Points Promotion.

I always get confused about how to calculate how many Elite Qualifying Points a specific flight will earn for me.

For example, yesterday I flew EWR-DFW in F. The miles posted to my account already. The trip is worth 1,376 miles and I got a 2,064 Bonus.

How do I calculate how AA gave me the 2,064 bonus miles for this trip? Also, from this past trip, how many Elite Qualifying Points would I earn with the Double Points promotion?

Any help is greatly appreciated. I’ve read all the information on websites, etc. and can’t figure this out. I know I am 46,986 points away from reaching EXP and want to know how I can sit down and plan my trips out for the rest of the year. I always book in F so I know my trips will always be eligible for the points.

Thanks…
