So for the last 7+ years I have been Executive Platinum on AA from all of my work travel. When you reach the 100K mile mark for the year they award you Executive Platinum for the next year and 8 System Wide Upgrades. Recently, I have changed positions and am not doing much international travel and probably won't have a chance to use any of them. For now I am giving away 2 and in the future if I have no chance to use them I will dribble the others out. These are good until Feb 28, 2014.
What these allow is for me to upgrade any one-way trip of up to 3 hops 1 class. So for instance say you were traveling JFK to Tokyo (HND) on American in coach. With a system wide upgrade, you can now take that same 14 hour flight in business class.
This can save you serious money, for instance the coach cost for a flight is $1826 while the business on the same flight is $7240.
Here is the thing though, it is against AA policy to sell or trade these so I am giving them away. Over the years I have given these to co-workers or they have expired (5 expired last year), this year I decided to give them to one of my favorite internet hangouts. I would prefer to give these to the senior people on the forum (i.e. those that have hundreds of posts) since they have made my time here enjoyable. Any questions you have should be answered in this FAQ from AA. The only thing I will need from you is the name of the passenger and the airline confirmation code.
Since this is my favorite area in the forums, I posted it in the "Classic Menswear" area. Since I am not selling or trading I didn't think it belonged in the marketplace and since it is not a discussion on travel it doesn't really belong there either.
Please PM me with your requests for one or both.
P.S. These are really best used on international flights, I had a guy at work want one for BOS - DFW which is 2 1/2 hrs...
