10,000 MQM Bonus was fast!

I can't believe that DL can make the Amex/DL coordination run this smoothly, but I received my 10,000 MQM Threshold bonus today, the exact same day that I received my last months miles from my credit card usage. Usually, it is delayed a solid 2-3 weeks. Well done.

Now, if only DL could put that much effort into making it's award calendar work properly...

That's how it's been for me for my past few bonuses. Right in line with the delivery of the actual miles.

$25k spending = 10k Miles + MQM
$50k spending = another 10k Miles + MQM

Wish mine was so smooth. I haven't gotten the bonus (even after writing 3 customer care messages and it's been almost 3 months.

Granted, I don't need 'em this year but it's the principle. When I called yesterday to enquire about them, the agent told me I wouldn't get them until after I renewed the card. Once I got over the shock she did some "investigating" and found out I was right.

Now here's to wondering if they'll post.

Same just happened to me and I was pleasantly surprised. They posted one day after my statement closed along with my other miles.

I got an email today:

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE EARNED YOUR FIRST
MILES BOOST OF 10,000 BONUS MEDALLION®
QUALIFICATION MILES(MQMS) THAT CAN BE
USED FOR BOTH STATUS AND AWARDS(1).

The thing is, I got 10K mqms in May. I don't think I'm at 50k spending yet. Is this an email notifying me about my miles boost from May??

I have the Plat DL Amex.

Only my regular spending miles posted this month so far.

Isn't that the one with an annual fee close to $500? OUCH!

No, it's only $135 (I think). Certainly not $500. You must be thinking of the DL Reserve card. I've gotten two MQM boosts from my card this year and both times the MQMs and the bonus miles were in my SM account within a couple days of the Amex statement closing date.

Good job Amex and DL!

Spirit, was each boost for $25 K spending thresholds? I'm trying to figure out why I got the email? I haven't spent $50k yet.

I'm still waiting for mine. I hit $40+k in spending for 2007, and they still haven't posted. For my spending in 2006, they finally posted in Nov 2007. So I am thinking that may be the case this year. Even though my anniversary date for the care is March. Time will tell

Yeah, my first one came in May and the next one in August. Each of those two months, I passed a $25,000 spending mark on my Amex. Restoring an old car will do that for you!

Don't know why you got the email. I didn't receive one on either occasion, and the fact that you received it three months after hitting the initial 25K spend doesn't make sense. Are you sure you haven't passed another 25K milestone? Check your statement. It should show exactly where you stand in your spending.

I'll have to do that. I am not travelling as much as normal this year so I should not have passed the 50k milestone this early in the year. And I got the email yesterday, a second 10k boost has not yet posted to my account at Delta.com.

I switched to online Amex statements, I hope that YTD spending is easy to find online.
