Just the other day, I was surprised to see 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) hit my Delta account. And now today, I received notification that I’ve earned another 15,000 Delta MQMs the easy way. So that makes 25,000 bonus MQMs without stepping foot on a plane in the last week along. A pretty easy way to earn Delta Platinum status.

The best part about these MQMs is that they count towards elite status qualification with Delta. The second best thing is that the MQMs you earn from the Delta Reserve Card from American Express are transferable. The MQMs that you earn from the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express are not transferable.

Total Earned From Delta Credit Cards

When I add it up, I realized it is actually pretty easy to earn elite status with Delta if you use the miles boost from one of their credit cards. Here’s a breakdown of the MQMs I’ve earned this year:

Bottom Line

I’ve earned 60,000 Delta MQMs from credit cards this year, 30,000 of those MQMs were transferable. Delta elite status isn’t that hard to get after all.
