    I have 30,000 elite qualifying miles. These miles can be used for status, up to platinum level

    So if I have 70,000 miles for status already, I can only add 5,000 to get to platinum, not 30,000 to get to "1k" (the next level)

    Question is, if I have 25k for status now, can I add my 30k miles to that, get to 55,000, which is below platinum. Then later, I get 50,000 more miles for status, and now I am at 105k. I don't use the elite qualifying miles to get me to 1k, but they are part of the 105. Does that work? Or do they disqualify the EQM's?

    I assume you're talking about the flexible PQMs you earn from the credit cards? Firstly, holy crap that's a lot of spend. Secondly, as far as 1K goes, you'd only be at 75,000 miles earned toward 1K. Credit card flex PQM cannot be used for attaining 1K.

    Do the PQMs purchased via Award Accelerator count toward 1K? Seems like they should considering how much they cost. Unless I'm missing some fine print somewhere, I may be right at the border, as I have bought a few this year. Very few, but with 110,000 total for 2012 as currently booked... I sure as heck hope so. Otherwise I may need to recalculate. I know that this thread is about PQMs via credit cards, but it makes me wonder if it is only BIS miles that count toward 1K.

    My right honorable friend is indeed correct. Moreover, they also count toward RPUs and GPUs as well.
