What does NW do after you've Surpassed 75,000 flow miles?

I meant to say flown miles

Last year NW gave a bonus 25,000 miles if you flew over 100,000 miles. Anybody surpass 100,000 and get anything extra out of it?

I have surpassed 100K, and 125K the past several years and almost 150K once. I dont recall seeing the 25K bonus miles however it is possible they appeared. There appears to be no clear benefit once you make 75K, or 100K for that matter. However with that said, I have noticed the past couple of years special offers to choose a couple of perks like some miles (perhaps these are what you refer to?), transferable domestic upgrade coupons, HNL upgrades, etc. I have sensesed that in certin situations like upgrades at the gate, if a tie exists between plats, being over 100K helps as well as getting WBC upgs. I have heard some rumors so take them as that there could be some new perks for those over 100K however Im not going to hold my breadth. Sometimes once I get to 75K or more lately 100K, I have moved my flying to other carriers to requalify etc. Hopefully NW WP program will add some incentive for 100K, 125K, etc. without reducing the program to the level of DL etc.

Last year I flew 125K actual miles and got nothing extra, no 25K bonus, nothing.

It looks like I am going to hit 100K this year easily. One thing on my "wish list" would be to have excess EQM's carry over into the next year.

I stopped flying NWA at 76,000 miles last year. Its crazy that they have no incentive to fly beyond 75,000. Better to get Gold on another airline. Delta allow mileage to transfer to next year (although its a very strange system)

I'm over 100,000 this year on elite qualifying miles, but nothing special has happened.

To me, 125% bonus is a very very nice perk already!

Very good one! Have you written Russ about that idea, if not you should. For the last several years have done the equivilent of Plat+Silver or Plat+Gold and once almost double Plat!

Certainly there is room for improvement in the program.

I've been over 100k EQM's for a couple of months now but haven't had any magic miles appear in my account.

Me, I'd rather have coupons that waived the minimum fare basis for international upgrades... (I know, dream on...)

Sounds like it might have been a targeted promotion, only available to certain members. I do not recall any general bonus being available for reaching 75,000 or 100,000 flown mile levels.
The past 2 years, I have been at 103,000 and 99,000 and have seen nothing like you have described. This year, I should end up at about 80,000 and I plan to defer any other trips until Jan/Feb....for obvious reasons!

I have flown appr. 150K - 160K EQM flight miles for the last 4 years.

I have never received a 25K bonus, however I have received a 10K customer relations bonus the past two yeats (in April) for flying a lot.

It would be great if there was a double Plkatinum Status, however the 125% bonus is very generous and I earned 125K bonus miles this year for Mileage Mania and 200K bonus miles for Mile A polooza as well as several other smaller bonuses,

I missed out on the upper range bonus with Mpolooza as my CO latin american BFirst fares did not count however I did pick up enough for a few european upgrs (when available ) .
