Reminder: Last Week to Qualify for 2011 Elite Status!

Almost all elite status calendars will reset on January 1, 2011, so you better act this week! Whether you need a couple thousand miles to make airline elite status, or a couple hotel stays to lock-in hotel status- you only have 5 more days to act.  If you don’t think you can possibly bear to watch your airline elite status get downgraded to dirt, then consider asking another airline to status match you. Hey-  it can’t hurt to ask! I’ve even outlined the process here to make it easy for you.

Not to brag, but I’ve already got my Delta Diamond, Starwood Platinum, Hyatt Platinum and Hertz 5 Star Gold locked down until February 2012. I may reevaluate these loyalties in 2011, but for now I am going to sit back and enjoy my New Years trip to Rio de Janeiro, Montevideo, Punta del Este and Buenos Aires.
