If you have been debating whether you should settle for Gold Elite or make a dash for Platinum, your decision has just been made easier. Through Nov. 30, when you earn miles by using Northwest partners, you will enjoy a 200 percent mileage match from WorldPerks – and the miles count towards 2002 elite status.
