Amex Spend: Track your Status Boost

Apologies if previously posted, did search, but didn't find on my terms.

Just noticed my Amex DL Plat account (via amex.com) that it shows (daily) the tracking toward MQM bonus boost (25k/50k or presumedly 30k/60k spend)

Delta's update seemed to be once a month and come December, I've always wondered how much EXACTLY I needed to (qualifyingly) spend to get the next threshold.
But now, on your online Amex statement page, it shows you where you are on the sidebar under how many Skymiles you have:

Track Your Status Boost

Earn 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) after you spend $25,000.00 in eligible purchases by December 31.
$xx,xxx.xx spent
$x,xxx.xx to go
Boosts at $25K/$50K
Updates daily. Additional Medallion® Status requirements apply.
See Terms.

My experience is that my AmEx total updates on DL's website about 2x per week

This year my spend updates much faster than last year. It seemed like it only updated once a month last year, while this year it updates every 2-3 days.

Right side of the card home page, right below the Skymiles total.

I noticed this last week, new for 2020. Saves me the trouble of doing a manual calculation.

Happy for this - it will let me be able to track if any of my AmEx expenses didn't count towards the $30K for some reason.

I know it says it "updates daily" but I have some transactions that posted 2 days ago that haven't moved the meter. Any ideas if this is normal or a fluke?

From my experience that is a normal occurrence. Items move off 'pending' but the meter may not get updated for all items for a few days.

IME the spend showing on the app had been generally but not always updating over the weekend. Recently it's been updating on random days, with random lags after the spend hits my account. YMMV.

Unhappy Random Amex and Delta Updates

I have $10K in spend since my last statement date Aug 24. Qualify for a boost. No update on AMEX or Delta for 3 weeks.

Just waiting for the 24th to see if they are only updating once a month. I agree with MSPeconomist very random.

For the last week I have noticed the Spend Tracker on the AMEX website has been incorrect. However the “Card Spend” on my Delta App is correct, and over the weekend my last MQM and Miles boost posted properly to my Skymiles account (as per the AMEX promotion I enrolled in.)

I'm noticing the same thing with my spend level not appearing in "Status Boost Tracker".

Just out of curiosity, how many here that are having the same issue are ALSO enrolled in the MQM bonus program that came our a few weeks ago?

I've received those MQM's and bonus miles but have not seen my spending increase in my Boost Tracker.

I'm enrolled in the bonus offer on my Plat but my Reserve didn't get the offer. Maybe I'll do a test charge on the Reserve to see if it moves the tracker.
