Got an offer for plat pro status for $1945. I’m currently platinum. Will this ever be worth it? Is it negotiable? I’m only 15k EQM or 20 EQS short of reaching it. I had spent 15k EQD.

I’m executive platinum and sometimes I don’t get upgraded, depends on your route but I say not worth it

You’re less than half way to the next tier by segments or miles, I don’t think you’ll have much negotiating room. I don’t think it’s worth it, as someone who is currently Platinum Pro. Still board in Group 3, rarely upgraded (even with over 20k spend). Depends on your routes, I suppose
