Delta promised us that starting yesterday Rollover MQMs from 2015 would begin to post to our accounts and a few scattered readers confirmed this.
Today there seems to be a new flood of folks getting theirs and I have as well. As you can see, in just a few days, when my latest AMEX spend catches up with Delta I will be Diamond Medallion until 1FEB2018. If you are curious, Delta seems to sweep data from Delta AMEX spend every 3 or 4 days (at least that is the track record this year).
Are you a few bucks short of your Delta AMEX card spend totals? My fellow BA blogger Grant has a nice post up where you can follow and get $1500 in spend done and when you consider the value of a SkyMile being at a minimum 1 cent each you are coming out ahead buying them and even just spending them (and knocking out $1500 of spend along the way).
Also, think about starting at EBATES before you shop at GiftCardMall as they are paying 1% back on the purchases as well making the deal even sweeter.
Now the real question is what will happen to MQMs after this medallion year? We are still waiting for news of what the next “enhancement” will be to the program and I have a sinking feeling we will not have to wait too much longer to find out.
Did you get your rollover MQMs yet? – René
