I just love it when I get to see the above hit my Delta Skymiles account. My Delta AMEX Reserve card statement generated Monday and dumped points into my account. Since I have made $30,000 in spend for the year I got 15,000 bonus Skymiles and that is always nice to see.
Next, after logging into Delta.com, I went to THIS LINK, and picked to KEEP the 15,000 MQM’s for myself. I could have given them to ANYONE I want (sorry I am kinda greedy about my MQM’s) and my wife does not need them for next year so I picked “yeah ME” and the MQM’s instantly posted to my Skymiles account.
I will be working on getting the next $30,000 spend done by the end of the year for the next dump of RDM’s & MQM’s and I am, at this point, planning on going for a personal Delta AMEX Reserve card as well for my next churn in October since it has 100% been more than 12+ months since I have had & canceled a DELTA AMEX PERSONAL card of any king and it has been much longer than that since I got any kind of personal Delta new card bonus points! Doing this would give me another 10,000 MQM’s after I spend $1.00 and they will post on the first statement. I don’t think I will have time to charge another $30,000 on that new card before year end.
Next year with help from charitable donations like KIVA and others I will run $60,000 on my personal Reserve and then $60,000 on my business card from my computer shop and net a kool 60,000 MQM’s “before” flying. I will also have about 20-30,000 rollover MQM’s so I should be good for Platinum Status with Delta until FEB2015! (and I will need a lot less mileage runs too)
Yep – yesterday was “yeah ME” day for sure – René
