AA's Double Elite Qualifying Miles Promo

Hi, wondering when they will post the bonuses.

The party line seems to be 6-8 weeks.

However, I have the weird situation that they seem to have posted a bonus for one leg of my round trip quite a while ago. Since the two flights are within 3 days of each other, that seems strange to get a bonus for one leg only.

Basically the two flights (a round-trip) accrue 50% points.

So, if each leg is y miles, I've gotten 50% x 2y points = y points.

But the qualifying miles is 3y, which means that they have doubled one leg (i.e. 2y + y = 3y).

Did I miss something? What should I expect? Thanks!

If I understand then you have, so far, received 2.5y and you are just waiting for the additional .5*y bonus to post. You should expect that .5y to post 6-8 weeks after the second flight.

That the bonus for the first flight might have posted in less than 6 weeks should not change your expectations that 6-8 weeks after the second flight you should have earned 3y for the whole roundtrip with bonuses.

No, I think I have 3y qualifying miles.

Shouldn't I be expecting 4y qualifying miles, as each leg is doubled?

Hi, never mind, the whole 4y just posted. I feel like AA must be reading Fodor's. Every time I post something about AA here, the problem is corrected.
