I've had glorious gold for the last two years, but this year I'm running short. As of Saturday I'll have 30,000 miles, with so far only 4,000 additional miles worth planned for the rest of the year. Piggybacking on some other threads, I'm wondering whether I go for the gold or try to roll over max miles for next year (when I plan to make a couple of good trips for sure.) If I get the Delta Reserve card (or other) now, I worry that the MQM boost won't be enough and it won't roll over and I'll have wasted it. So I'm thinking of just waiting until January to get card. Wouldn't mind one mileage run trip, but I think my "gold gap" is too large. Advice?
