No direct link to offer. Sent out via e-mail. Subject line is ‘Special offer: $59.99 for a year of double miles’. Might have the same e-mail with a different dollar amount
- American express has targeted some loyalty members for the Tailwind promotion. With this promotion you register by February 12, 2021 and pay an annual fee of $59.99 (or $69.99 or some other pricing) and earn double miles for a year on eligible domestic flights.
The Fine Print
- This exclusive offer is non-transferable and only for members who receive the offer directly from American Airlines
- Price/offers collected in U.S dollars are non-refundable and subject to cancellation and change
- Subscription fee includes U.S. federal excise tax (currently seven and one-half percent (7.5%) and is subject to change

- Register by 11:59 p.m. CDT on February 12, 2021 in order for your flights to count for this promotion
- Offer only applies to eligible flights that are both marketed by American Airlines and operated by American or our codeshare partners
- Flights marketed and/or operated by other codeshare partners, including joint business partners: British Airways, Finnair, Iberia,Japan Airlines, and Qantas aren’t eligible for this promotion
- Offer applies to eligible purchased, published fares on domestic flights from the date you register and purchase your subscription for one full year
- Flights flown before registration for this promotion aren’t eligible for the bonus-mile offer
- Flights that don’t earn AAdvantage® miles won’t count toward this promotion
- After completing a flight, your bonus miles will be deposited into your AAdvantage® account and will post separately from base miles earned for eligible flight activity
- Bonus miles don’t count toward elite-status qualification or AAdvantage® Million MilerSM status
- Mileage earned will be calculated at 100% of base award miles earned for eligible flight activity. Double miles will not apply to the elite mileage bonus – only base award miles. Read more about earning award mileage.
- Miles are subject to the standard AAdvantage® program terms and conditions
- American Airlines may, at any time and without notice, change, stop or end this promotion in part or in full
This is only applies to base award miles, not on the elite bonus so keep that in mind. How good this deal will really depend on how much you plan to fly this year and how expensive your individual offer is. This is an easy pass for me, but others might be tempted.
