Am currently chasing Executive Platinum and I'm now 12k miles away. I've got two more trips this year - one to LAX and one to SFO. Both are from ORD, my home base. I have signed up for DEQ11 promo, which offers double elite miles from ORD for both LAX and SFO. By themselves, the two flights won't get me to EXP. but with DEQM, I will make it over the line!! What I am worried about is when the DEQM will post? Last year took almost 6 weeks. If it takes 6 weeks this time, that means won't post till 2012. Does anyone know if I will get the DEQM to count towards 2011 even if it posts in 2012?? I would hate to get to 95K miles and not make it to 100K.
