Just got a targeted email with significantly reduced EQM/EQD requirements for elite status on American Airline’s AAdvantage program.
Only travel between the time you sign-up (which can presumably be as early as today) and May 26, 2017 qualifies, with status lasting until January 31, 2018.
Check your email to see if you’ve been invited with a special code, and then enter it onto AA’s special promotions page.
This seems to be one of the more generous status challenges offered by American Airlines, seeing as you don’t have to pay an up-front fee. And I can’t remember the last time they offered Executive Platinum status for only 35k. Did they ever?
Check your emails – may the odds be ever in your favor!
