Founderscard Offers AA Status Challenge


As in prior years it's nice to see Founderscard Offers AA Status Challenge. I am pretty happy with Founderscard so far though I can't make use of this perk because I already hold Executive Platinum status. If you can take advantage, this is a great benefit! Platinum status has some good benefits, including low-cost or free upgrades to First or Business class. Status is recognized by all OneWorld Alliance member airlines. Historically, AA charged upwards of $200 to enroll in a challenge. The best part of this offer is that you'll hold elite status until January 31, 2021. It is however a bit of a bummer that members with AAdvantage Platinum status or higher can't use this offer to requalify.
