    Welcome to MP!

    Keep in mind there is a difference between redeemable (RDM) and Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs). MQMs are the ones that count towards earning elite status. Ways to Earn Miles

    Other than flying on DL or their partners, including Alaska, RDM miles can be earned with car rentals, hotel stays, online shopping, branded credit cards, etc.

    In order to earn MQMs, you have to fly, meet AMEX spending requirements, or take advantage of occasional offers DL makes available...such as the 2 night Hilton stay for 250MQM right now.
