Yes, it seems these purchases still work for regular earning (and milestones like the $30/$60k on the Reserve) but not for MSR or the DL MQD waiver. Iím keeping the Reserve this year since I need the...

I just let my PLT expire as UGs have been essentially nonexistent since they added PLT Pro and made CK an actual status. Main benefits for me are no close-in fee for award travel, free standby, and...

I donít believe so. They definitely arenít working for the MQD waiver on the DL Reserve. Iíve spent $30k+ (and got my $30k milestone earlier this week) but AX is reporting to DL that Iíve only spent...

I donít recall his name. I believe he was from San Diego and only presented at one event (Costa Mesa). I certainly donít blame him, as times change. It worked well, until it didnít.

My experience is that you can not only call ahead (or email) as a consumer, but they prefer it for large orders. That way they can handle it when they have down time and not hold up the line for...

My MQD Waiver had been stuck at $1-$2k with a 15Jan18 date. It updated this morning (3Feb18) to show $2-$3k with a 1Feb18 date. So yeah, definitely some shenanigans happening here.
