What you are seeing is a brilliant approach to rake in a ton of cash from the BUY MQMs from Delta. The airline has truly taken printing money from elite flyers to a totally new level by charging, not just a TON more than last year, but more for some and much less for other. If I were to want to buy 10,000 MQMs as a Diamond Medallion it could set me back $1,995.00CRAZY – JUST CRAZY!

My wife, as a Gold Medallion, is offered the “bargain basement” price of only $1,495.00 for 10,000 MQMs. – Really?

not a medallion member

Now the ONLY good thing they have done is, apparently, BLOCK some from buying these vastly and ridiculously over priced MQMs when it would do nothing for as a Skymiles member with NO MQMs. Some will get the message that they are NOT allowed to buy MQMs at any price.

You can take a peek at Flyer Talker’s reaction to this above but as we talked about this past weekend, even at last year’s fixed and over inflated prices, getting a Delta AMEX Reserve either personal or business, is just $450 each and you get 10,000 MQMs and Skymiles after 1st purchase worth at least $100! So let’s see, hummm, spend net $350.00 or $1995.00. What would you choose? – René

  1. Wow…that is taking it to a whole new level. Several years ago, I briefly dropped from Lufthansa Senator (* Gold) to Frequent Traveler (* Silver) status. When I received the new FT card, there was a note sympathizing that I had not requalified for Senator but LH would allow me to keep my status for “only” 2000 euro. FT status is achieved at 35K miles, Senator at 100K, so effectively they were asking 2000 euro for 65K MQMs. Delta makes that offer look cheap, especially when you consider that LH status is good for TWO years – crazy!

  2. I got the $1,995 offer for 10k MQMs. The product is good. The MQMs that are being provided are good. It’s high quality, and it’s affordable. People can save money — significant money — by getting MQMs that are being provided through this marketplace.

  3. For the record, the offer I got as a Platinum was the same pricing as for Gold. $1495 for 10k MQMs. Uhhhh, no thanks.

    Interesting that they actually charge more the higher your status. Seems backwards.

  4. Interesting. I’m Platinum and it’s $1995 for 10k MQM for me. Ummm, no thanks. I guess if you have money to burn maybe, but definitely the 10k MQM AmEx seems like a MUCH better way to go. I guess if you already have the AmEx and need 10k more on top of that AND you have money to burn, then perhaps.

  5. I’m GM and was able to find a expensive MR in business that gave me the 6000 MQM I needed for less that the 899 seen above. I also get to keep 10,343 bonus miles. I do have to spend a 14 hrs traveling. I’ve done all the AMEX I can for the year so it was either the MR or perhaps paying the $899 as I really wanted the PM for the award ticket redeposit privilege. I have to plan an award trip to Santiago Chile and the flexibility to book and change award tickets should come in handy.

    Thanks for all your posts.
