I’m on my way to re-qualify for Delta Platinum status this year, and one of the easiest ways to earn Medallion Qualifying Miles is actually through their credit cards.
I had just spent $25,000 on my Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express so was thrilled when I logged into my account and had seen the 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles post today.
I also received the following email from Delta:
Congratulations on reaching the Miles Boost threshold.
You have earned 10,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs).
Congratulations on reaching the first Miles Boos1 threshold with your Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express.
You’ve earned 10,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) and 10,000 bonus miles for spending $25,000 with your Card within the calendar year. Your bonus miles have already been deposited into your SkyMiles account.
And remember, you can earn another 10,000 MQMs and 10,000 bonus miles after you reach $50,000 or more of purchases within the calendar year. Plus as a Card Member, you may continue to enjoy the Card’s many benefits, including:
- Discounted Delta Sky Club® access for you and up to two guests
- Receive a Domestic Main Cabin Companion Certificate each year upon renewal
- A first checked bag free – that’s a savings of up to $200 per round-trip for a family of four
As always, we thank you for your loyalty and look forward to seeing you onboard soon.
Earning Medallion Qualifying Miles from spending is the easiest way in my opinion. The other great thing about spending $25,000 on this card is that I now have earned the Medallion Qualifying Dollar Waiver requirement.
