AA Gold Challenge

Hi,

I am signed up for Gold Challenge and was told at the time that I can sign up for Gold then Platinum with the 5K difference after I made Gold. I have a reservation for CLE-LGA,JFK-LHR return MR / long weekend. Since I would make Gold on this trip with 5K qualify points on the return portion, I tried to sign up for Plat Challenge yesterday and was told that I cannot sign up until after I am Gold. Anyone has feeback on this?

Also would appreciate some help/suggestion in that my CLE-LHR would get me up to 4976 q points so I would not make Gold till my return trip LHR-JFK. Any ideas how I can get 25 or 500 Q points cheap from CLE before I go to London next weekend?

Thanks, Mary

There are dozens of AA challenge threads in the AA forum.

I did search and do a lot of reading and the conditions seems a bit mixed so asking if anyone had personal experience with parallel or Back to Back Gold/Plat challenages and under what conditions.

Can you route your CLE-LGA with a connection somewhere? That should do it.

It's an interesting question, but one that is more appropriate for the American Airlines forum. Please continue to follow this discussion there.

Thanks,

Mitchell,

Have you got your Gold yet? Any issues?
