Yeah, I never received one in the years I didn't hit 75K. Actually went from 75K to MVP after 2016 and didn't even receive anything about Gold.

As with bmvaughn, I've got no issue with this. I guess I've never even asked to make an exception for this, so it's no harm, no foul to me. I've always used a cert when I've ended up on separate...

Good point.

For me, I am "frequent flier opt-in" PreCheck and have seen ZERO disruption of service.

I have also seen dozens and dozens of "random" PreCheck continue to be the case. I fly first...

I see a lot of the "what does this iPad tell me to do" situations in Hawaii airports the last few months, and see A TON of people in SEA filtered into the PreCheck lane.

All that said, I had a...

Just hit 75K (the hard way) SEA-LAX on Friday, which was great. Credited overnight, and it was nice to see those extra 50K miles chilling out in my stack this morning. After *not* having this for one...

Ditto here. I've continued to get it repeatedly since any of these "rumors" started. I'm probably 9/10 flights of late, including 2x this weekend.

Probably about 50-75% success. I've been 1/3 on the upgrade list before, numerous times. If not, I'm sitting in the exit row basically 100% of the time.

I've gone to Maui on a whim about four times using just this method. I've literally bought a ticket four hours before takeoff simply because it was $199. I love it, and so does my MVPG...

It's definitely the case. Checked in on my mobile yesterday for a flight today, went online right afterwards to see, and sure enough I had not put myself on the list. Annoying, and IMO intentional.
