Well, as of today I am officially done with elite status chasing for 2011. I reached 25 Hyatt stays recently and renewed Diamond, I achieved Gold status with Hilton Honors for 2012 through some 4-stay promotion a few months ago, and this past weekend a re-route/re-book into Full Y ensured that I achieved 1K-ness a month head of schedule on United. My wife reached 1P status again on this trip as well and is too far away from 75k miles to consider that. (*) Looking at our bulging account balances, next year is shaping up to be a "burn" year, even if it means saying good-bye to some status levels. Barring any unforseen major promos, I'll probably aim for - Platinum (75k) status with UA - Platinum status with Hyatt - Gold status with Hilton (possibly via Surpass credit card upgrade) What are your goals for next year and are you achieving this year's targets? (*) I also have Platinum with Priority Club and Hertz 5* Gold, but don't really consider them terribly useful. Oh, and Accor Platinum, I guess.
