Hi, sorry to post such a basic question but I have done a lot of research and it seems each year there are variations to the ways in which you can boost status. I wanted to clarify what these are for 2015 for anyone looking to get more PQM's before year end. I am looking for guidance on the below in terms of accuracy and anything I may have missed. Ways to earn more PQMs: 1. Fly more miles (including switching routes to cover more miles) 2. Mileage Plus Premier Accelerator (costs vary, I have been quoted from 0.07 cents per mile - which I cannot currently get to 0.15 cents per mile - with the usual offer falling at 0.11 cents per mile) 3. Status match if you have elite on another airline Previous year's methods of attaining more PQMs 1. Mileage plus choices, swapping miles earned on the credit card for PQM's at a rate of 10:1 - no longer available as far as I can tell? 2. Charity action on this site (will there be a 2015 charity auction?) 3. Perks Plus for businesses (no idea if this applies for 2015 but it doesn't apply to me) FYI I am a 1k member due to get about 75k miles for 2015 and I want to find a way to get the extra 25k PQM's without paying the premier accelerator cost (for me > 3k). Any input much appreciated.
