Going to be ~9000 miles short of executive platinum on American after planned trips this year. Is there anyway to make the difference up other than a mileage run?

They will send you a buy up offer, I received mine a week ago (however I hit EXP again on my last trip so it’s not relevant). It is quite pricey though...mileage runs are always the most economical

Credit card bonus? Not sure if those count toward status but could be worth looking into

Same boat OP exactly 9K short. Let me know if you find any economical mileage runs. My home Airport is DFW.

That’s got to be a trip to Spain in Economy or a Boston run in Business

Start looking at fares for a round trip between MIA to SEA in first/biz class to knock this out. Might seem a little pricey but it’s efficient and plat pro out of DFW is pointless...

Any deals on routes outta ORD?

Google fights is a good tool to evaluate routes and fares

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
