Just spoke with AA regarding the status match. Here is what she sent me:

Thanks for speaking with me today about the special opportunity we are offering for you to obtain American Airlines AAdvantageŽ elite status without meeting the standard qualification requirements. In order to proceed, please provide us with documentation reflecting the elite status level you have in the frequent flier program we discussed.

This documentation must reflect your name and elite status level for the 2011 Membership Year and could be in the form of a dated elite membership card or a copy or screen shot of your most recent account summary. In addition, please provide your AAdvantage number and your preferred phone number in case follow-up is necessary.

If you wish to email this documentation back to us, please be sure to "Reply" to this message - and for prompt service, do not change the subject line. Simply include a copy of your documentation in any of the following formats, not to exceed 1 mb:

          .pdf
          .tif
          .jpg
          .bmp

If you prefer not to send us email, you may FAX copies of your documentation to (817) 963-7882. Be sure to include your AAdvantage number and your preferred phone number.

Please note it is not necessary to send us both an email and a FAX - one or the other will be sufficient. In either case, you can expect to hear from us within approximately one week of receipt of your credentials.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard your next American Airlines flight - as a valued elite member with all of the benefits and privileges that status affords. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,

Katherine Beckley
AAdvantage Customer Service


Is this normal or should she have just done this for me via phone? I sent her a screenshot.. She said I'd get an answer within 7 days... any reason why they won't match it?

Thx

How could she do it over the phone without any proof?
Let us know what happens!

Of course the real trick will be to get Delta Gold out of BMI Silver (though that was likely a fluke) and then mAAtch to AA Plat.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thx Dan

Can't you only status match once?

thanks, signed up! would it make sense to sign up for the rest of my family as well?
If the rest of your family will be flying without you in the next year then it definitely makes sense! It will also give you more opportunities to play with status matching.

Generally speaking.

I have a feeling that this will either stop working or accounts will get shut down when so many people sign up.
I don't see why it would. It will only be offered for a limited time anyway. It is a legitimate promotion to encourage people to sign up for their ff club. I have been using it thanks to Dan for the past year without any issues. It is just surprising that other airlines allow you to status match BMI without making you show your statement to prove that you have actually earned the status legitimately.

You'll get a confirmation e-mail that asks you to activate your account. The "confirmation page" basically just informs you that they'll be sending you an activation e-mail.

I'm confused Dan. Back in the old post when you put this up, people were commenting how they got an email saying that they needed proof that they were eligible for that promotion....why would this be any different?

They never actually needed proof last time.  Nobody got demoted.
