What did I get from American Airlines?

Although some of my friends received freebies ranging from 500 to 1000 miles, I received a free Main Cabin upgrade. This means that I can buy a normal Economy ticket and receive a free upgrade to a Main Cabin seat.

If I complete 4 qualifying flights between January 1, 2021, and February 28, 2021, then I’ll also receive two 500-mile upgrade certificates.

I also logged into my wife’s account to see what Christmas freebies that she was eligible for. Her offer was not as good as mine. She received a preferred seat coupon. This coupon allows her to pick a preferred seat without paying an extra fee.

If she goes on two flights between January 1 and February 28, then she’ll receive a Main Cabin upgrade coupon.

Both of us also received a one-class upgrade and double miles offer when booking a rental car with Hertz.

To take advantage of our promotions, we need to click register by December 16, 2020, (done for both of us) then book flights for travel on or after January 1st. Once we complete our offers, the additional coupons will post to our account.

The Bald Thoughts

We probably won’t use these promotions since we don’t have plans to fly in January or February 2020. Miles would have been a better gift, but since these gifts from American Airlines are free, it is hard to complain.

Comment below to let us know what you received from American Airlines. Hopefully, you get something that you can use.


  1. It’s not all positive though. In order to use the free gifts, you have to fly on American. It’s akin to receiving a lump of coal in your stocking at Christmas.

    • HAHA I’ve had mostly good experiences on AA. I typically use them (or their miles) for international flights. My primary domestic airlines are Southwest and JetBlue whenever I can fly them. No flights booked on any airline right now, so I’m totally sad about that.

  2. I got 100 miles. Some gifts are just a joke gift and not even worth a couple of minutes. Didn’t get an email, but checked promotions.

    • 100 miles by itself probably aren’t worth it. However, extending the life of your other miles is. From what I’ve heard, these bonus miles should count as a qualifying activity.
