I’ve been nervously checking my AAdvantage account multiple times a day for several days now. Why? I knew I had some miles that were about to post, and when they did, I would be past the 1 million mark! The magic happened on Monday morning. 1,003,033 AAdvantage miles! Lifetime Gold status in the bag. I’m Platinum already, but it’s nice to know that my status will never drop below Gold.
Considering that I was an airline employee until early 2004, and not earning any miles (except for credit card purchases), I’m pretty proud of this. Only 996,967 miles to go to 2 million. And I’m looking forward to earning every one of them.
