Loyalty Points are the new way to reach AAdvantage® status. You’ll qualify for status based on the Loyalty Points posted to your account for the 12-month period starting on March 1 of each year. And, the new AAdvantage® status membership year is valid through March 31 of each year.
You’ll earn Loyalty Points as you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles whenever you fly, use an AAdvantage® credit card for purchases, or earn eligible miles with AAdvantage® partners. One eligible AAdvantage® mile equals one Loyalty Point.

The status qualification year starts on March 1 and runs through the last day of February of the following year.
AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points earned on posted purchases made with your AAdvantage® credit card will count based on the transaction date captured in the cardmember’s credit card account. AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points typically post to the applicable AAdvantage® account within 8 to 10 weeks. Keep in mind, Loyalty Points from credit card purchases that show a transaction date on or after March 1 count toward the new qualification year.
Review your AAdvantage® Aviator® Mastercard® Reward Rules for details.
All other flight and partner transactions will count based on the activity date of the flight or other transaction.
You’ll receive the option to choose from a variety of rewards that enhance your experience such as a systemwide upgrade, an award discount, Admirals Club® One Day Passes and more. You’ll experience more rewards even before reaching status – and more often after you do.
Track your progress toward reaching these reward levels in your account. Once you reach these goals, your reward choices will be available in your AAdvantage® account.
