I'm less than 600 miles away from lifetime gold status. I'm very eager to get over the threshold. I just got an insurance quote from Liberty Mutual that should get 500 miles fairly soon (I did it last year and I remember those miles posting rather quickly). FYI: you can churn the Liberty Mutual insurance quote each year for 500 Aadvantage miles. And, hopefully the 250 miles from the Best Western sign up bonus post soon. Then I'll be at lifetime gold - woo hoo! What do you get for hitting the million mile marks? 1MM: lifetime gold status, and eight 500-mile sticker upgrades (those w/ US addresses) or four SWU (those w/ international addresses). You also get two luggage tags showing your MM status. 2MM: lifetime platinum status, and four SWU (domestic and international addresses). You also get two luggage tags showing your MM status. 3MM+: four SWU at each MM mark.
