10 days in and have completed the challenge, obviously with the help from 5,000 bonus MQMs thru a AMEX Delta Platinum card offer that posted a couple days ago. Flying so far has only gotten me 8 segments and 7,772 MQMs, so the bonus 5,000 got me over the 12,500 MQM threshold. Maybe a good data point for others needing help with the MQM/MQS portion of the challenge. And I blew thru the MQD $1,500 threshold with $2,600 so far :
