my wife just got an email from AA this morning, includes 20 500 mile upgrades as well. Says “ no strings attached”. Is it for real or perhaps a scam email? When we fly American It’s usually using our BA miles but did fly revenue in first 1 1/2 years ago when we cashed in some city points for a ridiculously cheap first class ticket out of Mexico City… Anyone have the scoop on what is probably a targeted offer? John
First thing I would do is hover your mouse over the sender’s (“AA”) email address, and within 2 seconds the real email address should pop up. That would be a first indication whether it is a legit email or not. If it seems legit, I would try finding an “offer code” somewhere in the email, and if you do find it, call AA’s Advantage Desk to check on/verify that. With legit offers, there is almost always an offer code.
You could also copy the address that the link points to and parse it to see if it is really going to aa.com
