One of the great benefits of the SkyMiles program, is that they offer Rollover elite qualifying miles. Any miles earned over the required Medallion level threshold rollover to the following year. For new Medallions be sure to check out How To Qualify for Delta Medallion Status in 2016.
However, this process isn’t instant and usually takes a few weeks. I do have good news, as Diamond Medallions have begun reporting on Flyertalk that their Medallion Qualifying Miles have been rolled over for 2016.
If your Medallion Qualifying Miles haven’t rolled over yet, keep an eye out as they should in the coming week. Delta starts with Diamond Medallions, then Platinum Medallions, followed by Gold and Silver Medallions.
Delta has acknowledged the following: Rollover MQM balances will be reflected in SkyMiles accounts in mid to late January.
What to do if you need more Medallion Qualifying Miles:
If you are looking for a way to earn even more Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQM’s), the Delta Reserve card gives 10,000 MQM’s and 10,000 SkyMiles after the first purchase. The Platinum Delta Amex gives 35,000 bonus SkyMiles plus 5,000 MQM’s after spending $1,000, and the Delta Gold Amex gives 30,000 bonus SkyMiles after spending $1,000 within the first three months.
Once you sign-up for the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Expres, if you then spend $30,000 on the card in a calendar year, you can earn what’s called a miles boost, which gives you 15,000 bonus miles and 15,000 MQMs each calendar year when you spend $30,000 on the card. And if you make a total of $60,000 in eligible purchases you will earn an additional 15,000 bonus miles and 15,000 MQMs each calendar year.
The same is true for the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express, if you then spend $25,000 on the card in a calendar year, you can earn a miles boost, which gives you 10,000 bonus miles and 10,000 MQMs after you spend $25,000 or more in eligible purchases on your Card in a calendar year. And if you make a total of $50,000 or more in eligible purchases on your card in a calendar year you can earn an additional 10,000 bonus miles and 10,000 MQMs.
