    I remember reading in the past that they could be exchanged for 500 AA miles. I don't know if that was urban myth or not?

    Not sure about that - I haven't seen anything that confirms that. Would be nice if it was true - I have 6 left out of 10 of the 500-mile upgrades myself, when AA gifted me Gold status for 3 months.

    lol wow. I would guess they are worth something if you're allowed to apply them for other people.

    You can - but only if you're traveling together and they are on the same PNR you are on.

    Additionally, EXP members can also use these upgrades on AA award tickets, provided that they are traveling within North America on American
