They just extended status again through early 2023. If you lost it due to Covid (in 2020), and earned it in 2019, so you should still be Platinum for another year.

Ask any of your ambassador friends to gift it to you. Easiest way.

Agreed. But they would have to have “earned” (via the lower $ requirements) ambassador in 2021, to be able to gift.

For context, i had gold before and was on a play challenge but didnt complete it cuz of covid, been reaching out to my network but only been able to find plat ppl :(

I’m pretty sure we (ambassadors) can’t just give ppl platinum status

Does anyone know anything about Dave Ramsey? It feels like a cult. My friends swear by him but I can’t figure out his logic.

It feels like the plan may be for lower income people who don’t manage money well but that may be completely ignorant of me?

General question: is there any certain “rule of thumb” post that you sell to take profiles? I’ve seen some experts (“”) say to always collect at 20% and others say until you see a reason to sell. Asking as rearranged last week and luckily got into the airlines before they exploded and now I’m sitting about 50% up on delta. And after selling Zoom way to early (used to buy my delta), I’m not sure whether to take the cash or let it ride more. This fast a rally makes me think it will plummet soon
