But based on our experience in the 2006 program year, it seems like they actually allowed you to accumulate miles in January the following year (that is, accumulating mile flown in Jan, 2007 for the 2006 program year). Is this official? or is there an official "grace period" in NW's EL program?

I wasn't able to find it anywhere on their website, but since I will be about 3,000 miles short to be a Plat this year based on current travel plan and will be flying in early Jan, 2008. I would like to get some idea about this.

Thanks in advance.
The Elite Extra Perks promotion has 2500 EQM as a bonus for the 60k level. This is about the only magic bullet, other than flying, that I'm aware of. Time to start planning a mileage run.
