Travel is on pause, but the miles and credit card perks that come with certain travel credit cards still hang in the balance. Thankfully, many travel brands have stepped up. They have assured us that we will still have the chance to use the benefits we have earned through flying, hotel stays, and credit card loyalty.

Credit Card Perks Extended Due to COVID-19

Elite status extensions are a big relief for many travelers, but this article looks beyond miles and points. So, if you’re looking for news on the bonuses you may have earned with credit cards, here’s what you can expect. There are sure to be more changes and extensions to come over the year.

Delta Air Lines

Existing Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) rollover to 2021. This will hopefully make it easier to requalify for 2022 status. So, if you have one of the Delta Credit Cards from American Express that incentivizes big spenders with bonus MQMs, you can carry those over to next year, too.

Summary

As you can see, many of the major travel companies are working to help their loyal travelers. Therefore, look out for news or emails from loyalty programs. As we get further into the summer months, you may see more companies announcing extensions or special perks.
