American Airlines Status Match Offer

There is a new American Airlines status match offer that targets some Delta and United flyers. I think Delta elites may be a little more interested in this with their recent “re-enhancements”. I would say this American Airlines status match offer would be another airline taking a shot at Delta (oh, hey JetBlue), but the fact they threw United in there too makes it a little more interesting.

Instant Status Pass Offer Details

Here are the details of the American Airlines status match offer:

For a limited time, enjoy an exclusive offer to experience the equivalent AAdvantage® status tier. Enjoy the benefits of status with our award-winning loyalty program for up to a year. Here’s how:

  1. Submit proof of your earned status with Delta SkyMiles® or United MileagePlus®
  2. Receive approval and enrollment information for an Instant Status Pass from our team
  3. Enjoy your matched status for 4 months with an opportunity to keep your benefits until the next membership year
How to keep your matched status

American Airlines Instant Status Pass Offer: ToP Thoughts

This American Airlines status match offer is pretty nice offer for top tier elites with Delta and United. Even if you don't plan on making a loyalty change I would consider doing it if you have any upcoming American Airlines flights. The four free months of status could offer you some decent perks on your flights at least. The only drawback is you would be ineligible for something like this in the future for a few years likely. You would have to weigh that, plus consider what your future status with Delta and United would be like, before fully diving in. Maybe you will never have a high enough level with Delta again to take them up on this anyway, which seems likely for many.

If you had considered making a loyalty change already then this could be serendipitist timing. Especially if you have an American Airlines credit card already, and are locked and loaded to rack up some loyalty points.

Let me know if you are considering taking American Airlines up on this status match offer over in the ToP Facebook Group.
