30k spend in two months – not too bad. I had set 3 months for my goal but pushed it a little bit to make it before my March AMEX statement cut off. I personally set my date for my card for the 2nd (you can pick any date you want btw give or take a few days). It often cuts off on the 3rd or 4th but that works too. How did I do all of this? Take the time to read THIS post and email me any questions you may have.
Delta was kind enough to email me that I could now redeem my MQMs or send them to a friend via THIS link. While I have been nice and given away MQMs to a good friend before, not this time!
So on to Delta. I used the drop down to pick the business card since that is the one I have so far met the spend on. I then clicked to keep the points myself! YEAH ME!
And done. The strange thing was the points were not showing up in my Skymiles account. Ruh-Roh! But before I panicked I logged off and logged back in.
There they are :-)! They did post instantly I just had to “refresh” if you will. I am now up to 150,000 MQMs for the year, including rollover, and have 45,000 more to earn from my AMEX spend. I have 11,000 MQMs coming this month from two mileage runs and 6,000 more from another trip. 212,000 so far and thus only 38,000 shy to be Diamond until 1FEB2017! I can do that in 2015 on credit card MQM spend alone 😉 – René
