Just helped my cousin with his flight... he is paying using his sapphire instead of his aa plat level card. I hope it is as everyone suspects, no need for ticket to be booked on that card!!!
Nothing to worry, He shouldn't have a problem... I suggest adding to the reservation his AA # (that's on this Plat level card) so that in the airport its on file. That's what the rep in the airport told me...

Post what ends up happening

Thanks... his flight is in a long time so I doubt I'll remember but either way my own perusing through the T&C seem to support what you wrote...

I had the AAdvantage Gold Level Card. It was originally a Plat. Level however I downgraded it a while ago bc of the lack of benefits. They are telling me to up it again to Plat. will take 8 days... can I sign up for Plat level card if I already have the gold level MC and get the signup bonus again? What if I sign up for the Amex instead? I want the free baggage for a flight this week or early next week....

Bumping this bc I might need this for a flight soon. Can I sign up for Platinum level card even though I already have the gold card and still get the signup bonus?

I'm currently planning a 9-leg tour of the US with my wife this summer using Avios. I was worried about the luggage fees, but any of these cards looks like the way to go.

Anyone have a recommendation? I don't have any of them.

I got an email that says I should add an additional user and they will have the benefit as well.
In the T&C it does not say you need to pay with the card, it says though that the card should be affiliated with your millage number when you make your reservation.
I have the email to show the ticket agent if I ever have a prob.
How would I do this if I'm an AU and I'm booking a Avios flight on AAdvantage???
Who did you email that got you this benefit?

Just show them your card at the check in counter..

I just added my wife as an additional user, got the card Fri, she took a 6am flight out this morn, when the agent said its going to be $25 she just showed her the card and the fee was waved.

This was in MIA.
