    How much are you willing to spend? And what level are you trying to achieve? Are you totally flexible on travel dates before the end of the year? Where are you based?

    Welcome to Milepoint!

    If you have a chase card, you probably could do CHASE EQM transfer points?

    Thanks for posting. I did see this and will look into it.

    I'm based at SNA in So Cal. I can squeeze in another trip before the end of year, but hoping to avoid if there is a good alternative. I'm attempting reach Platinum on UA for 2012 (75,000 miles).

    I registered for the Double EQM promotion on UA for a RT last week (SNA-ORD). This should give me an extra 3,450. http://p.p0.com/YesConnect/HtmlMessagePreview?a=_iu6b-sapRmsCFGtqoqCA8ri&msgVersion=web
    However, these have not posted to my account yet. Do you know how long it takes for these to post?

    If successful, then I am down to just 420 miles. CO purchase might be my best bet in that scenario.

    I really appreciate your feedback! Thanks.

    Technically, the EQM's for the DEQM promos don't post for 6-8 weeks after travel, but they ARE valide for the year of travel even if they don't post till after. Sometimes with EOY DEQM/TEQM roll overs the status isn't updated till after year end. Just do your math, verify on the website and/or with MP service desk and make sure you are compliant with all T&C's

    The other forum suggested you call in and see if it's been more than a week. For 420 miles, you could fly to SFO and be done. It's about $220 right now, I think. I don't know how much the Elite Maximizer would cost for the same number of miles.

    Elite maximizer should be well under $100 for 500 miles at this point.

    The price also includes the 678 ish reward miles that came with it.

    depends on the airline. Call the MP desk to check on the flights you have/had about DEQM. they will come, probably in a big sweep this saturday or next IMHO
