They will convert on the 9th.

Upon activating their new Mileage Plan account, Elevate members will be able to convert Elevate points into Mileage Plan miles at a rate of 1.3 Mileage Plan miles per Elevate point, which can be used to access award travel on Alaska and Alaska Global Partners.
Now, my problem with this is that I still don't know what they're talking about. Elevate now has "Reward Points" and "Status Credits". It sounds like Reward Points will convert at 1.3x, but that's not clear to me. As far as the status match, will it also be a conversion factor between Status Credits and Alaska's miles?

Also, FWIW, my Gold status expires 06/30/18 now. I requal'd so, I guess I've got an additional 6mo extension. That's reward points. 1/18 for status.
