    I get more goodies (global and regionals) if I hit that differential.

    Do I book a flight or premier accelerate miles on the flight I came in on?

    What is the best way to get the additional goodies for another 25k benchmark and is it worth it?

    Is it worth it is very much a personal decision based on the cost - time and cash - of getting those last few PQMs.

    I did ultimately pay $260 to buy the last few PQMs I needed to get my 150K; I'm not entirely sure I would've paid $520 for it, plus the rates may have gone up. With only 3 days left in the year buying is probably the best approach, but I have no idea what the price is these days.

    Where are you based? Any chance of flying more if a deal popped up?

    You get two more RPUs and GPUs. If you're actually going to use the GPUs 400-500 spend to hit 150k may work or you.

    Sent from a reasonably priced car.
