I know Memphis is not the Delta hub it once was but it is time for some mileage run love. Well sorta. I know you folks think you have the best BBQ around but Austin is good too. So here is a chance to compare. Well, if you take the 1st class run maybe as the coach one all you have time for is a hotel and back to the airport. I guess you could try Salt Lick at the AUS airport but airport BBQ is just not the same (to me). Oh it does work only one day FROM AUS with no overnight (that I can find).

Either way be sure you choose via DTW both times when you go to book on the Multi page on as shown above.

Here are the coach numbers:

Cost: $171

3,510 MQMs at 4.9 CPM via DTW 2x

As you can see from the above, if you are in need 10,000 MQMs or more the above cards are one of the simplest ways to get the MQMs you are short for the year. It is VERY important you see THIS POST <-LINK to check if you have ever had the personal card bonus EVER before as that will prevent you from getting it again. As to the business cards, you must not have had the card for 365+ days to get the new card bonus again. Do note the annual fee is NOT waived for the above cards but the value of the MQMs to me far outweighs the cost of holding the card for a year or more.
