The more I look at the options the less thrilled I am with the promo. It just doesn't seem viable for many previous AA flyers. I got in touch with some of the folks I met on the MegaDO to see if anyone was interested in the promo (and a potential group MR ) since most of us were existing AA EXPs. Everyone said it just wasn't an option for them due to the high thresholds we'd have to meet. One guy would have to fly over 90K miles to qualify! Mine is much lower, but it's tough realizing you'd have to figure out how to get to Shanghai 3 times in three months to qualify for the bonus, while others can essentially take one flight to anywhere and cross the finish line. The mileage reward for existing EXPs who succeed under this promo would theoretically be much sweeter though, so there's that. It does seem like we might have a group MR regardless though, so at least that might be fun.
