It’s the fast and easy way to upgrade your Dividend Miles Preferred status. You can buy up to Preferred through May 31, 2014 and enjoy your benefits through February 2015.
How to buy up to Preferred
Just take a look at how many miles or segments you need to qualify for your next status level and then match what you need in the buy up to Preferred fees table. Keep in mind that you can only buy up to a tier that you are within 25,000 miles or 30 flight segments of reaching. If you're unsure of how many Preferred-qualifying miles or segments you've earned this year, log into your account.
