Granted Alaska mvp Gold 7K
Hi Ben, two months ago I attained Delta platinum medallion through to 2020. Delta is my go to airplane I have been with them since 2007 but this is the first time I’ve gotten to platinum after so international flights and significant spend to their amex cobranded cards. The point is , thanks to you I decided to stretch out my medallion benefits through Alaska airlines status challenge. I uploaded my platinum status details to Alaska on one lazy afternoon and forgot about it. I was told in a pop up that my request was submitted for mvp Gold, not the 75k version. If I qualify I will have the status until 12/31/2018!! I was like what a wasted opportunity…so today I was fiddling with my Alaska app trying to see if I could get a flight to Honolulu early in January, to my bewilderment Behold! My tier status says MVP Gold 75K!! through 12/31/2019!! I live in Dallas and fly out of DFW most of the time, Dallas Love Field flies a bunch of Alaska codes flights that I would like to take advantage of next year since I probably will have a trip to Australia and Asia(HK). Do you have any tidbits as to how I can maximize the opportunities this new status gives me alongside my Platinum medallion. I am very unfamiliar with Alaska the last time I flew…it had the virgin America moniker. Thanks in advance for your input.
Martin, what are your goals here? Trying to maximize how many miles you earn? You can earn a boat-load of Alaskan miles as an MVP Gold 75k when flying in premium cabins on their partner airlines, but crediting to Alaska.
