You may not have points to redeem just yet, but they'll add up quickly as your employees fly. A Cool Effect carbon offset award can be redeemed with only 150 points (or $750 of airline spend). Let's get you ready to redeem.

Types of awards

From round-trip travel and premium cabin upgrades to Admirals Club® memberships and AAdvantage® elite status. Learn all about your award options so you're ready when it's go-time.

Redeeming points for awards

As a travel manager, there are two ways you can redeem points for a flight or upgrade awards once your company has reached $5,000 in qualifying employee travel:


  • When booking employee business travel, you can redeem points during checkout, or
  • Redeem points for a flight or upgrade certificate to use at a later date

For Admirals Club® and AAdvantage® elite status, AAdvantage® mileage awards simply designate a recipient at redemption. The membership, status or miles will be available within 1 to 2 business days.
