(meaning, will I lost my 4,000 miles?) I guess the correct amount should be "8,500 EQMs needed to earn 500-mile upgrades" because 12,500 (new rule) minus 4,000 (prior balance before March 1st) equals 8,500. Am i right?

Please, someone EXPLAIN me this "reset" stuff to be occurred March 1st.
On March 1st, balance will go to zero and start all over again. Some have been successful in getting partial sets granted before the reset, but only by calling in. If you have 5k, then two 500-mile upgrades may be added to your account. Also hear some that were close to 10k were given all four.

Just looked at my account and it appears they have gone to a count-down approach rather than count up. So come March 1 (January 1, starting next year), you should see the 12,500 requirement. Again, if you are close to 10k or even 5k, it's worth a call.
