What a crazy day this has been. If you have not been following the DeltaMileageRun blog today you have missed out BIG TIME!. I booked an amazing mileage run out of DFW this morning and then a bunch of readers have been taking advantage of the many city deals to just about all points in Europe “attack fare” deals.
Now thanks to Skymiles2015 and PWM or Pay With Miles when you have a Delta AMEX card (I know I cannot believe I am say this – but game on), and being able, according to Delta.com, to earn points when redeeming Skymiles even in coach on Delta metal, there are HUGE chances to earn MQMs.
Plus, if you think about it, by spending $400-600-ish per ticket with miles you are basically redeeming your points at low level 1 or better for each round trip (ie. 40,000-60,000 RT)! Oh and you are earning some Skymiles and many MQMs that you would not earn as a straight up award ticket! #Winning!
Some bits to keep in mind. The Skymiles you will earn on many of these runs will be almost nothing but as long as you book on Delta.com on Delta metal you are good to go for a HUGE haul of elite MQM points (and maybe a nice vacation too).
We are only 5 days in to 2015 and it sure is shaping up to be an interesting flying year! Have you booked any flights today? – René
