The beginning of 2013 was a challenge, I did not travel through January and February because of a job change. I missed my companion pass because I also did not travel last December. I got the companion pass back this year, but ended up almost 7,000 points (or 7 flights) shy of renewing A-List Preferred. Is there any way that I can get the 7,000 tier qualifying points without the actual flying? I am on the road a lot and want to spend the holidays at home with family and friends. I am hoping to find a way, any help is greatly appreciated!
