just made 75K

Hit 75K a few weeks ago, just got my package in the mail. Qq, is there anything unofficial above this status that anyone knows about? Should be at 100K by about mid-October.

Nothing really unofficial that I've encountered

Op, I'm trying to go for 75k this year. Just wondering, are the luggage tags still a part of the 75k package?

Guess this is an 'unofficial benefit'

How is the quality this year?

The color seems slightly darker, but other than that no difference. I'm still using one from the 2012 packet--it's held up nicely.

Do the 50k bonus miles post immediately? Also, you still get those if you qualify with partners at the 90k requirement, right?

They post as soon as the status sweep occurs, which can be a few days. You get them no matter which way you qualify.

And how do you nominate someone else as an MVP?
I think I'll make 75 in a month or so, I'm eager to find out

After my trip to MSP, I got off the plane and called the gold desk. They changed my status immediately, so I could pick up the upgrade on the way home. Bonus miles and upgrades posted immediately, Gotta love Alaska

I qualified 75k for the first time a few weeks ago thanks to DEQM; sadly I'm need some serious MRs to requal next year unless there's another DEQM (not holding my breath).

I just saw 8 additional guest UGs in my account. This was a nice surprise - I'm assuming that this was 4 additional for each of 2014 and 2015. I hadn't expected the 75k UGs to be in addition to the MVPG ones.

The member benefits page says 75ks get top priority on UG waitlist, but this seems to contradict other reports about how the waitlist works on day of flight.

Day of flight the 75Ks should be on the top of the list. I've never experienced anything different--the only issue might be if there are several 75Ks waiting for UGs (thankfully most of my routes are fairly light with 75Ks).

Congrats! Don't forget to update your FT profile, it still shows you as a lowly MVPG
