I just posted about American's offer to fast track targeted customers to Platinum Elite status. Here is the link to the post.
This offer just came out and is supposedly not targeted which means its possible that everyone can sign up. If you are able to get some travel in and meet the requirements, you could get some fantastic benefits. Click here to see the elite benefits chart — my favorite would be upgrades but there are many more!
Here's what you need to do to know to sign up for this promotion.
* Gold requires 6,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (this could be 1 international flight)
* Platinum requires 12,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (this could be 2 international flights)
* Executive Platinum requires 30,000 Elite Qualifying Miles (unless you're flying for work, there's no way to reach this)
