Does anyone know if, when you convert Marriott Rewards points to Delta miles, those miles count as MQMs (Medallion Qualifying Miles)?
Basically I'm 15000 miles short of Gold status on delta and want to get it before the end of the year to ensure gold carries over into next year. I'm hoping I can just convert marriot reward points to delta miles to accomplish this.
Thank you for your input.
Chris, I know that miles that are purchased do not count toward MQM but I do not know if miles converted from Marriott points count. I would be surprised if they do, though. Last year, we purchased enough miles to achieve silver status and feel like it was a good investment. This year we upgraded to the Delta Reserve CC which includes 5000 MQMs after the first purchase. We are waiting for those miles to post. The reserve card includes entrance to the SkyClub. I wish we could fly enough to earn gold status.
