Earn Up to 1,300 American Airlines Business Extra Points — But Hurry
You can earn up to 1,300 points in the American Airlines Business Extra program — which is a complimentary business travel rewards and incentive program completely separate from the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program designed to help small and medium-sized companies to reduce their travel costs — with the following two separate offers:
First — If you enroll in the American Airlines Business Extra program before March 31, 2014, you can earn 1,000 points — but you must be referred by a member who has been targeted for this offer. Before you allow your heart to sink at the thought of not being eligible to participate in this offer, you can count on fellow FlyerTalk members to come to your “rescue” and refer you.
Second — Once you are a member of the American Airlines Business Extra program, enroll in the Avis Corporate Rewards program and complete your first vehicle rental by March 31, 2014, you can earn 300 points — enough for a free day pass for admittance into an Admirals Club airport lounge.
All three major airlines in the United States have separate incentive programs where small and medium-sized businesses can earn points separate from their respective frequent flier loyalty programs:
- United Airlines has the PerksPlus program
- Delta Air Lines has the SkyBonus program
- American Airlines has the Business Extra program
Although there is no charge for joining any of the aforementioned programs, you must have a legitimate and eligible business in order to join. Just be aware that while each of the programs are similar in nature, they do have different sets of rules — such as how points are earned or the expiration policy of points — and redemption options to exchange your points for rewards. For example, some FlyerTalk members have been finding out that their SkyBonus accounts became inactive and all earned points had been forfeited because their companies may not have maintained a minimum spend of $5,000.00 per year on flights operated by Delta Air Lines.
