Platinum Elite

This morning Northwest Airlines credited me with 10,000 Elite Qualifying Miles with something called "EQM Thank You Giveaway." Thank you, Northwest Airlines!

Those miles bumped me into Platinum Elite status. My first perk for attaining this level was an email with codes to earn six, count them, six one-way, system-wide confirmed upgrades. Man, do I feel special!

Now if only I had someplace to travel...

I got an email today explaining the 10,000 miles
Dear Angelo Villagomez,

A jump start can be the perfect beginning.

That's why we're excited to provide you with 5,000 complimentary Elite Qualifying Miles (EQMs) - which have already been deposited into your WorldPerks account - to help you requalify for Elite status in 2010.

We understand your ability to travel is more restricted this year, due to the economy and other factors, but we hope you'll continue to fly with us and enjoy your elite status benefits while continuing to add even more Elite Qualification Miles to your balance. Take advantage of our vast new network, serving almost 400 destinations in more than 65 countries on six continents, including new routes to Johannesburg, Sydney, Saigon and beyond. Book a flight today.

You're the reason we fly,

Jeff Robertson

I was already Gold Elite, so I guess they doubled my miles automatically.
