Mixed 1st and coach at sub 7CPM

With a HT to FT for the inspiration (I made it better again) this is DIRT cheap and you can basically do it all taking just one day off (i.e fly out at night and back next night)! But, as you can see from the above shots, you can overnight and spend more time at the Centurion SFO before you fly and the Centurion in IAH on the way back and not red-eye (that would be me for a few bucks more). Or, and this again would be me, do coach out and then 1st back and overnight? So many choices and all you can play with on Delta.com with multi city tool (also see above).

Here are the weekday redye numbers:

Cost: $158

6,310 MQMs at 2.5 CPM via DTW 2x

Book direct on Delta.com via Mulit-segment tool

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.
