Do Change Fees Count Toward Medallion Spend?

I paid $500 to change a ticket. Does this amount count toward my MQD?

All other ancillary purchases or fees including but not limited to checked baggage fees, Priority Boarding, Delta Sky Club® memberships, Wi-Fi passes, in-flight food and beverage purchases, in-flight entertainment, unaccompanied minor fees, pet travel fees, Mileage Booster™ or mileage purchases, ticket change fees, Direct Ticketing Charge (DTC), same-day confirmed or standby fees, Administrative Service Charge (ASC), and External Reissue Charge (ERC), do not count toward earning MQDs.

If any of it was a positive fare difference, then that portion would count.

Whatever portion was the change fee (aka administrative service charge) won't count, as well as all the other random fees quoted above.

I've always found it interesting that change fees and the like don't count. I would think this is the type of spending Delta would want to encourage the most given that there is virtually no COGS associated with it (other than some loss of precision of inventory control). But yes, they don't count.

All that stuff should count.
