    Nope but you’ve piqued my interest! That’s a tempting offer (unless you have to forgo the normal hotel points).

    Any chance you have a screenshot of the offer with the fine print? Thanks MACH

    don’t get your hopes too high, it’s maxed out at 1250EQM. the way i see it it would make sense only for hilton stays double dipping.

    How it works:

    [*]Register now with promo code
    [*]Book and stay by July 31, 2017
    [*]Earn 10% EQMs on all base award miles earned from qualifying stays (up to 1,250 EQMs during the promotion period).
    [B]Terms and Conditions[/B]
    Promotion Period: May 23, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. CDT through July 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. CDT.

    To qualify for this American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus Elite Qualifying Mile promotion (the “Promotion”), an AAdvantage® member must have received an email from American Airlines regarding the Promotion (an “Eligible Member”). Eligible Members that [URL=’’]register[/URL] for the Promotion and earn miles on qualifying stays with Hotel Partners during the Promotion Period will receive 10% bonus Elite Qualifying Miles (“EQMs”) on all base miles earned from the qualifying stays. Limit: An Eligible Member may earn a maximum of 100 EQMs per qualifying stay and a maximum of 1,250 EQMs during the Promotion Period, regardless of the amount of qualifying stays. Qualifying stays that take place before an Eligible Member is registered for the Promotion will not count toward the Promotion. An Eligible Member must also be in good standing in the AAdvantage® program at the time of the Eligible Member’s first qualifying stay and throughout the remainder of the Promotion Period.

    To earn AAdvantage® miles from qualifying stays, an Eligible Member must follow instructions given by the Hotel Partner to either (i) set the Eligible Member’s earning preference to American Airlines miles on the Hotel Partner’s site, or (ii) provide the Eligible Member’s AAdvantage® number during the booking process or upon check-in.

    EQMs earned as a result of the Promotion will typically be posted to the Eligible Member’s AAdvantage® account within 7 business days after the qualifying stay has been posted by the participating Hotel Partner. EQMs only count toward elite status qualification for the AAdvantage® program. EQMs earned through the Promotion will not count toward AAdvantage® Million MilerSM status. EQMs cannot be redeemed for award travel, AAdvantage® miles or any other AAdvantage® program awards.

    American Airlines is not responsible for products or services offered by Hotel Partners. American Airlines assumes no responsibility for how participating Hotel Partners count qualifying stays. An Eligible Member must check with the Hotel Partner to confirm how the Hotel Partner records a qualifying stay. Additional terms and conditions that govern certain Hotel Partners’ qualifying stays can be found at [URL=’’][/URL]

    The Promotion may be used in conjunction with other AAdvantage® Hotel Partner bonus mileage offers. Qualifying stays booked through [URL=’’][/URL] that earn AAdvantage® miles will qualify for the Promotion.
