Delta announced today that they are adding a Medallion Status Tracker on their site, which will show you how close you are to meeting/exceeding your elite status level based on flying and on spending .
The SkyMiles team posted this of Flyertalk today:
As you are aware, starting January 1, 2014 U.S.-based Medallion members will have a new requirement for earning status: Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs). We have updated on this change throughout the year and have some more information to share this morning.
Starting January 1, 2014, members will earn MQDs for Preferred and Economy Comfort seat purchases, in addition to the MQDs earned for base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges on Delta-marketed or ticketed flights. For more information about what counts and what doesn’t, see the MQDs FAQs.
We are also excited to announce the launch of a new Medallion status tracker at delta.com. The new tracker can be found in the My SkyMiles section of delta.com or on the My Delta dropdown on the Delta homepage when you are logged in. The tracker displays your MQMs and MQSs side by side and will also track your MQDs and MQD Waiver (Delta SkyMiles Credit Card Spend) progress once these new thresholds launch on January 1, 2014. The new tracker will also be in the Fly Delta app beginning January 1, 2014. For more information on the changes at delta.com, see the What’s New page.
MQD’s kick in January 1st and they want to make sure their SkyMiles members are aware of the changes. For those who did buy Economy Comfort or Preferred Seats, those now will count toward MQD Spending.
