PM for 2017

Got the Reserve card in March, and hit 60k spend last month. Earned both MQM bonuses.

Made DM last week after returning from SJU.

No change in my acct. This must apply to pre-2017 Reserve cardholders.

. . . . . . But, I could see where they might be a little backed up today!
It took my RUCs 24-36 hrs last week to hit.

Has this Mix Up happened to anyone that doesn't have the reserve card?

I am just a lowly SM and got a second round of 15k MQM today which triggered the GM status for me. At first I was somewhat disappointed because it was also showing that I was further away from status for 2018. It looks like another round of changes have gone through now though and I'm back to being close to status for 2018 and still am tagged as GM.

Thanx!

I think they're actually twice as thick as the 1MM tags!

Maybe, but I'd suspect that a good number of people have yet to hit the PM/DM MQD spend threshold or Amex MQD waiver spend. So it may not be as bad as you think.

I got a second 15K MQM boost today (backdated to 12/31 like the one that posted yesterday) and am now up to 109K MQM's. Still well below both Amex MQD waiver threshold and MQD thresholds though, so no difference in 2018 status.

I think DL-Don would be one of the people *not* impressed by a 2MM tag

I just recently hit $30k in spend and am expecting to get my first round of 15k MQMs when my statement hits. I wonder if the timing of this is related to receiving the mistake MQMs.

Did you achieve both the $30k and $60k boosts? I wonder if that is a differentiating factor.

Doubtful; as mentioned upthread I no longer have a Reserve card, and am not close to $25k on my DL Plat.

What the ??...

Been a couple years actually since I've been here, had to stop flying regularly due to several circumstances that I don't need to bore you with.

But firing up the email this morning brought an email from Delta with the existing on making Platinum salutation, and I was all like, What the...??

After logging into my Delta account and not able to figure anything out, I figured I needed to head to the horses's mouth and find out what the experts here had to say. Figured it just couldn't be me and sure enough you folks are all over it.

I had not looked far enough down my activity list to see that they indeed posted two Reserve 15,000 mile MQM deposits and a redeposit of roll-overs and there you go, Platinum.

I have enough Delta cards for my business that I always maintain a Gold level through spending, and don't worry I'm not taking anyone's well-deserved upgrades as I am just not flying but maybe once a year currently.

My current roll-over balance has not changed from prior to this so have not had that problem yet that I see some of you have had. existing, I don't fly so I don't need the upgrade certificates, so I went ahead and choose the 20,000 miles as my one Choice Benefit and I'll wait to see where the dust settles like the rest of you are.

Thanks once again for being a great group that keeps me informed when the need arises, and best of luck to all in this time of computer shenanigans!

Sorry! New Info...

Logged out of my Delta account and then went back in to see if I had missed anything else about benefits in getting the Platinum Upgrade (did get four more drink coupons!) and my current MQM balance has now increased to the new roll-over figure they posted this morning which increased my existing total by 15,000 MQM's.

So for anyone keeping track: I have the Reserve and met the spending limits to get both 15,000 bonuses and did apply them to my account. So was Gold, Now Platinum with an extra 15,000 MQM's in the the account.

Nope, because I got the card late in the year. I bet that is the issue. I also haven't yet reached the boosts this year.

My MQMs are up 20K, didn't understand so I called the DM line before seeing this thread and it is an AMEX glitch. As I am getting close to 2MM, I am looking often. My rollover last year was 483K and I just looked after reading this thread more and it says 503K.
