    I am grateful for the knowledgable people on this forum who contribute their wisdom and experience. Thank you.

    I have one more domestic r/t flight in December, which will just push me to 1K on 31 December. If I buy some PQM on my first two segments, I will reach 1K a week early. I'm not seeing that this would benefit me in a meaningful way (I can't get upgrades on my 31 Dec flights since they're both puddle jumpers), although perhaps I'm missing something.

    Since most of my travel is international, the GPUs interest me particularly.

    No point in buying early. Of course, if something goes wrong on that flight on the 31st then you might be in trouble. But I cannot come up with any other reason to even consider buying the PQMs in your position.

    I agree with WA. If you do have trouble on your first flight then the buy-up remains as a possibility to work around it.
