Qualified for Gold (pathetic, I know) with $3,003.00 in spend.
Anybody else cut it closer?

Not closer, but I made PLT with $6015. I actually had to take a less convenient flight on my last trip of the year, since the better flight cost $50 less.

The irony is that I will probably squeak in the EQD for EXP, but come up short on miles/segments - no soup for me! (I will make PPro, with precisely 90 segments as of tomorrow...)

WOW! I'm at: 17,670 EQD, 115,166 EQM and 169 EQS. ($104/EQS and $0.15/EQM)

I'm shocked my EQD/EQS is so much lower than other listed here (others here are $241-522 so far)! Maybe I can use this to show how my flights are much less than others and get a raise at work

Very similar stats to @hofstraflyer. Probably bottom of the EXP UG list for me
