More MVP Gold 100K benefits to come.

MVP Gold 100K will launch by the end of January 2021.


Notes:
  • It seems the 24 AS segments required will not include the rollover of AS segments from 2020 for qualification based on 2021 flying. Though notequiteaff reports that the twitter team said they do in post 154, an email reported by tonylop33 in post 178 indicates otherwise. Given that the email is from the director of the loyalty program management, it is safer to assume that only 2021 AS segments will count.
  • Since December 12 2021, the full website of Alaska shows the number of EQMs, the number of segments on partner airlines and Alaska, and a separate count of Alaska marketed and operated flights.

MVP Gold 100K Tier - Features and Benefits (Pre-Launch)

It should be noted:

More MVP Gold 100K benefits to come.

Look for additional MVP Gold 100K perks to be introduced later in 2022, for the 2023 program year.

Min. 24 segments on AS to get 100K status is crazy!

Its awesome!

Benefits listed as End of January 2022 is interesting. Glad to see the 150% mileage earning.

Interesting to see the 120 hour upgrade window with highest priority

It doesnt look like they stripped anything from the lower levels unless Im missing something.

MVP Gold 100K can be earned in 2021

In the footnotes: Members who qualify for MVP Gold 75K or MVP Gold 100K are eligible for either a total of 1 or 2 one-way upgrade certificates on American, depending on tier qualified for at year-end. Certificates for 2021 qualifiers will be distributed in early 2022. Only members who meet the published qualification criteria for the tier are eligible. Status acquired via nomination, status match promotion, or special offers are not eligible.

I didn't see the 50K mile bonus, or ability to nominate someone to MVP, included as benefits for 75K or 100K tiers. I wonder if these have been removed, or I am just not seeing them. The addition of American Airline Upgrades are very nice however.

I mean.. AS was systematically issuing (4) GGUs to 75Ks in practice, even though it wasn't a published benefit; and now that has been "patched" so 75Ks are SOL. Even at 100K you aren't awarded another (4) GGUs. Though, 75K/100K will get the AA SWU.. some of us have no need for them.

anteater sad.

Pretty ho-hum benefits over 75k; seems principally like a way to manage the F upgrade priority to favor heavy AS travellers which seems reasonable.

From the list so far, the only real difference I see is the complimentary "Snack" when in Y. That does not help me as a 1MM. I already get that. I had the Northwest Deli Pack yesterday.

Yikes. Didn't see that. Not appealing!

May I pre-reserve your 2 SWU in exchange for my 4 GGU next year? Anteaters help each other out

am i misunderstanding it or do we need to wait for the announcement, the 100k status will be available in 2022 January, but it doesn't say if I have 100k EQM in 2021 will earn me the 100k status in 2022, or, one need to magically fly 100k EQM in 2022 January to be among the first 100k members.
Other than that, a little disappointed, at least 75k should have 2 one-way AA SWU, and 100k have 4. Only 1 for 75k just feels weird.
Same fares as 75k for a confirmed First class at booking? please, give at least 1 more fare class.
Choice benefits seem like a thing, and AS doesn't pick that up, mainly to uphold their AL $450/600 fee increase?
