I canít seem to find any info on this. Would appreciate some guidance.
They don't take away your PM Choice when you become DM

The PM Choice and the three DM Choices can be selected independently and in any order.

Looks like I'll be $241 short of Gold after holiday travels. Paid up to C+ on some upcoming transcons, and am not ready to take the $900 plunge on D1 FCM.

Is a quick day trip to BOS/DCA my best bet?
Or RDU which is lovely in fall. Just pick a city you want to see that costs $250, it'll be fun!

Should make sure base fare is at least $241 (which works out to about $290 total with taxes on a domestic roundtrip on non-stop flights).

I'm in the same boat that I should qualify for DM shortly. I had already chosen the 4 RUC's for my PM benefit.

I'm debating what to choose for my Choice Benefits. It seems the GUC's are the most valuable (and I can almost certainly use 2, although I'm not sure about the remaining 2), so I'm debating between 2 GUC and 4 RUC's or 4 GUC's. My experience using RUC's has not been stellar, and it seems GUC's are pretty tough as well, so taking 4 may not be worthwhile.

For the second and third choices, I'm likely going to gift my wife Gold (she flies 4- 8 times/ year) and take the 25,000 miles, as I get club access through my DL Reserve card. Anyone have any other strategies that make more sense?
