Hoping someone can help me sort this out. I qualifed for Gold last yr, 28 november (last leg of flight that was gold qualifying. Actual gold card has expiration date of 1/2012. Online, it has my membership year ending on 11/28/2011. I assume the 11/28 to be the correct date. My question is what happens if I requalify for gold by September 2011? Does my year change to sept 2011-sept 2012? If thats the case it would probably be wise to renew as close as reasonable to the 11/28 so I dont keep shortening my membership yr. Is my logic accurate?
