To share information amongst Golds, and to perhaps motivate MVPs to "strive for more", I thought I'd share from my experience yesterday on a quickie GEG-SEA-GEG trip to meet with a client. My perception of the Joys of MVP Gold status: Bought two one-way tickets for the meeting (on the Alaska Visa, to qualify for the 1,000 mile booking bonus per trip). No change fees on tickets for Golds meant no risk, and an extra 1,000 miles. Could have bypassed the normal security line in GEG (didn't, because no one was in the regular security line). Ahh, Spokane! Fine-tuned the arrival/departure flights at 12:01 a.m. the day of travel via the website (Golds can switch flights day of travel online or in person, same routing, without fee or fare adjustment). Bypassed the normal security line in SEA on the return. Meeting finished early - was able to standby for an earlier flight back to GEG --- 18 total people on the standby list, I was number 3 of 18, the top four made it on the flight. Made it home two hours earlier than ticketed. Any other Joys to share?
