My miles didn't post within a week, so I called Customer Care. They manually adjusted my miles for me. The extra miles doesn't even show up in the Mileage Activity. They simply increased it by 50K.

Last year (2021) it was instant after my 75k qualifying flight.

They told me the miles will post in January because I'm 100k in 2022 they did not want to make me 75k just yet to get my bonus miles as I would lose my 100k status.

That is hilarious! I am 100K in 2022 too. I received the 50K bonus RDM on the way to the gate after my qualifying flight on March 9th.

Crossed the 75K threshold last week (without the inclusion of the CA bonus) and the 4 lounge passes showed up but no 50K mile bonus. Will call AS tomorrow.

Like James, my 50k miles posted in July when I crossed the 75k barrier. I was a 100k and still am a 100k, so that is a bit of odd (mis?) information! but the, there is AS IT..........

If you earned the bonus and haven't received it yet I would make sure to call or chat before the end of the year.

AS does not make it easy to track EQM. I take a screenshot of my EQM meter after every flight and check it later against a spreadsheet I use to keep track.
Is the EQM meter more-or-less the final say? Mine shows it's over the threshold, but now I'm not so sure it's correct due to also not being awarded the 50k bonus miles. (But then again, the meter is there for a reason, and why shouldn't a customer assume it's correct?) I think I need some other opinions here.

Depends what you mean by "final say" I think it's final in that you will be some kind of 75K but maybe without 50K bonus miles and lounge passes if some of the miles to arrive at 75K were from California bonus or other "lite" miles.

It IS the final say in terms of the status you'll have in 2023 assuming you also have the required number of required AS sectors. For this purposes an EQM-is-an-EQM-is-an-EQM.

It is NOT the final say in terms of the threshold bonuses (50k RDMs at 75k or the choice options at 100k). For calculating this an EQM earned from a promotion (e.g. BoA bonus EQMs, CA double EQMs) do not count.

You'll need to take the EQMs shown on the EQM counter and then back out whatever "promo" EQMs you have. This will give you what AS calls your 'organic' EQM balance. This is the real EQM number AS will go by in terms of posting the 50k bonus RDMs when passing the 75k organic EQM mark as well as the choice options at the organic 100k EQM mark. And again to state the obvious, this assumes this assumes you also have the required number of required AS sectors.

...and to further complicate matters, AS has had to manually post the 50k RDM bonus at the 75k organic EQM mark too for some members; the IT system did not automatically do it.

When I passed 75K the lounge passes were posted but not the 50K bonus. I didn't have any EQM bonus miles. I had to use chat with CS to get the 50K. Definitely call if you're not sure where you stand.

Not quite!

EQM mean nothing without segments. To have 75K+ EQM means you have only completed the EQM requirement for Elite status. You must have also completed 12 AS Marketed & Operated segments. For MVPG75K to be granted, both requirements must be completed. If you only have 8 segments, you would be granted MVPG.

I finally got around to contacting MP about my missing 50K bonus, which did not post automatically with my Alaska Lounge passes and 75K status renewal update. I used the chat function, and was told a request would be submitted, and to give it a couple of days. Four hours later, they're in my account. YMMV.

The inconsistency with AS is mind blowing. I chatted today for the EXACT same reason and scenario and was told by the end of the month!
