I would strongly consider the earn DM/mileage run for PM next year approach. It's so hard to predict travel patterns far in advance as you have learned this year, and DM is really a big step up over PM.

You may find that you'll organically earn PM next year or be close enough to justify a mileage run. I find that with FF programs, a bird in hand is quite valuable.
