It looks like Delta’s rollover MQM are starting to post — several days before the announced date.

I heard from multiple Diamond Medallions — including our very own René — that rollover MQM hit their accounts today.

I dropped down to Platinum — and mine haven’t yet hit. So Platiniums, Golds, and Silvers: just be patient. But this certainly is a good sign that rollover MQM are on their way!

  1. You’re missing that there’s a window of opportunity to still get the 15,000 SkyMiles on the first two 15,000 MQM Status Boosts between now and when the new benefits take effect later this month.

  2. @ChrisCarley, sure, but why wouldn’t you do your readers that premium service to remind them here? It’s what takes a resource from great to greater, really dotting those Is and crossing those Ts. (Plus, it’s as though you’re missing a time period if someone were to use this post to determine their strategy. It’s win/win.)
