Companies Can Earn Up to 10 Award Tickets

NEW YORK, Oct. 5—For a limited time, companies based in the Greater New York area, as well as Eastern Pennsylvania,  that enroll in the Business ExtrAA program can receive up to 20,000 Business ExtrAA bonus points – enough for 10 Economy PlanAAhead® awards(1) valid for the Continental U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Business ExtrAA® is a complimentary program that rewards companies for doing business with American Airlines. With Business ExtrAA, companies accrue points when their employees travel for business on American Airlines, American Eagle or American Connection® operated flights and include the company’s Business ExtrAA account number in their reservations. Employees also earn miles on their personal frequent flyer AAdvantage® accounts when traveling using their company’s Business ExtrAA account number, so both the company and the individual traveler benefit.

Through this promotion, companies will have the opportunity to reach the maximum 20,000 points bonus via this stepped approach: to earn the first award ticket, companies must enroll in the Business ExtrAA program using promotion code BIGNY2 and have any one of their employees fly one round trip using the company’s new account number during the offer period, Oct. 4, 2010, through Jan. 31, 2011. Newly enrolled companies that spend $15,000 or more on qualifying** flights within the offer period will earn another 8,000 Business ExtrAA bonus points, equivalent to an additional four round-trip travel awards. Lastly, companies that spend a total of $30,000 or more during the offer period will earn another 10,000 Business ExtrAA bonus points, equivalent to an additional five round-trip travel awards. Every employee that travels using the company’s Business ExtrAA account number can help the company earn points.

“In this tough economic climate, what better way for American Airlines to reward our most loyal small and medium business customers than by helping them minimize travel costs, simply for choosing to do business with us?” said Jim Carter, American’s Vice President – Eastern Sales Division. “We are pleased to offer this promotion to help new member-companies jump-start their bank of travel awards in our Business ExtrAA program.”

Business ExtrAA points can be redeemed for more than 50 travel awards, including flights, upgrades, AAdvantage Gold® status, and Admirals Club® one-day passes, conference rooms, and memberships. Companies can choose how points are redeemed. Business ExtrAA points can be used to control business travel costs, donated as part of employee incentive programs or used to thank valued customers for their loyalty. The Business ExtrAA  program keeps track of all ticket purchases and a sends a monthly e-mail to companies to advise when the account has been updated. Companies can also review their activity online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and by contacting their dedicated customer service desk.
