Earning Delta Elite Status comes a lot faster when you consistently add 10,000 to 15,000 Delta MQMs to your account. The easiest way to elite status and to add MQMs to your account is through the Miles Boost promotion with the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express, and The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express once you hit the spending threshold. But just because a card gives you bonus MQMs just for hitting spending thresholds doesn’t mean it’s the best Delta card for you to get.
15,000 More Delta MQMs Added To My Account!
For me, the extra MQMs I earn through the Miles Boost with my personal Reserve card and my business Platinum card help me earn and enjoy Platinum status each year.
For example, I recently completed two spending thresholds. In the first threshold I spent a total of $30,000 on my Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express. Shortly after I met the spending, the statement closed and I received the message below indicating I would receive the second Miles Boost threshold from meeting the card $60K spending requirement. So they are adding 15,000 Bonus miles and 15,000 Medallion MQMs to my account! (I certainly did this faster this year with the Target RedCard.)
When you are ready to claim your MQMs, just follow the simple steps in this linked post, or see below for an image of how the process is completed.
Redeem Delta MQMs
Log-in to your Delta account and select the MQM redemption option. If you have the Business and Personal card, you can select each one individually. If not, select the one you have and move forward with the MQM transfer process.
Earning Delta MQMs through the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express, and The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express is one of the quickest ways to earn Delta Silver, Gold, Platinum or even help you get to Diamond status.
