    American Airlines Launches Newly Redesigned, More Personalized E-mail Products Along With 'Travel Brain Sweepstakes'

    American Airlines is getting personal. And to prove it, the airline is offering customers who check out American's newly redesigned, more personalized e-mail products a chance to win more than a quarter million AAdvantage® miles, a trip for two to a deluxe resort, and $5,000 spending cash.

    The American Airlines Travel Brain Sweepstakes, which runs through Feb. 27, 2009, is intended to highlight the fresh, new look and more personalized content of American's e-mail offerings, including popular Net SAAver® e-mails, which feature weekend travel specials at deep discounts.

    As part of the redesign, Net SAAver e-mails now highlight destinations that are on sale from a customer's home airport or from a city that is close to their home, making it more relevant for the subscriber. Customers can continue to see the full list of Net SAAver fares as well as all of our great low fares on American's website, AA.com. Additionally, the new, personalized content includes special offers and other news that may be of interest to the customer.

    Other e-mail products that have updated designs include the monthly AAdvantage eSummary(SM) statement, which contains customers' AAdvantage mileage balances and exclusive bonus mile offers, as well as American's AAirmail(SM) e-mail, which enables customers to stay in-the-know through exclusive offers and discounts, product and service news, and current promotions.

    American also offers two other e-mail products - AAdvantage promotions e-mails, which highlight a variety of mileage-earning opportunities on purchases customers make every day, and AAVacations(SM) Travel Picks e-mails, which include special offers and rates on vacation packages. To learn more about American's great e-mail products as well as the new and exciting changes to our e-mails, visit www.aa.com/email.

    "A customer who subscribes to American's e-mail products will regularly receive information about great travel deals and a whole lot more, with much of it tailored to their own interests," said Derek DeCross, American's Managing Director - Interactive Marketing. "The Travel Brain sweepstakes is a fun and engaging way to let customers know what American has to offer - and to put their American Airlines Travel Brain to the test."

    It's easy - and free - to enter the Travel Brain sweepstakes, which is open to U.S. residents age 18 years and older. Just visit www.aa.com/brain for more details. There's a limit of two entries per person - one for checking out American's e-mail products, and another for forwarding the information to a friend or family member.
