Land 50,000 status points, and you’ll take your membership to the highest level: Elevate Gold Status.Each day, we’ll check your eligibility for Elevate Gold Status based on the number of status points you earned over the last calendar year, and as soon as you earn 50,000 Elevate status points, you’re golden. So, if you earn 50,000 status points on October 1, 2012, you’ll keep your Elevate Gold Status through February 28, 2014.
How to keep Elevate Gold Status:
After your first full year of Elevate Gold Status, you’ll need to earn 50,000 Elevate status points by December 31 each year to renew your benefits. If you earn fewer than 50,000 Elevate status points in a calendar year, no worries. We’ll just renew your Elevate membership in Silver Status.
