The sweepstakes also highlights the convenient American Airlines Car Planner, which makes finding and booking a rental car at AA.com a snap.

    "Our 'Find It. Book It. Win It!' sweepstakes provides customers a fun way to learn more about the great things they can do at AA.com, like booking rental cars with our convenient Car Planner tool," said Alice Curry, American's Manager - Interactive Marketing. "From our latest booking enhancement that enables customers to search three days before and after their original flight departure date, to being able to view flights by page based on price, to receiving up to 40 flight options on the results page when applicable -- we've made it easy for customers to navigate the travel process."
