Just projected my mileage out through the end of the year, I’ll be 2564 miles shy of Delta Diamond 🤦🏽‍♀️, and have United Silver...

Are you saying your toddler is more important than status?! Clearly misaligned priorities.

Mileage run! One coast to coast flight would get you there. Also just burn your United silver status!

Yeah... I have a toddler, I can’t just do a mileage run...

Do the mileage run with your toddler. Nothing says fun like a x-country round-trip with a 3-year old 😂

I’m EP on AA, Diamond on DL, and have already earned half of the miles for Diamond next year...it’s only September. FML

Two options. 1. Buy a first class ticket instead of your normal ticket once or twice and you will get the miles you need 2. If you already have a delta amex....upgrade your card to the platinum or reserve card. They will credit your earlier spending on your other amex towards the total you need to get the 10 or 15k mqms (x2 if you have spent enough)

Change a few coach flights to business. Pay the fare diff out of pocket. Those extra EQMs can get you over the line

Just add some out of the way connections. Like Midwest, that will add like 1k miles each way, which gets you very close

haha yeah, for sure, I’m hoping a few flights that I didn’t plan for come up, or I find a reason, which is also doable, I’ll be close. I’ve already hit over 100k so far on Delta...
