I love this one and would book it if I could find the time to fly it (just smashed in April). I also love this as you can do it if you can only run on weekends. That is you can fly down to Dallas on Friday after work, take the run ALL DAY on Saturday. Over night again in Dallas Saturday night (yes you need 2 nights in hotels but no red-eye and this is why we have hotel points right?). Oh you have time  for some BBQ after the run Saturday. Then Sunday before you fly home you can enjoy the DFW Centurion. What a nice way to spend a weekend right?

Or, if you are OK on weekdays – I can see this as a really good shot at upgrades from the coach deal that is also not bad at all for under 5CPM (but I would really look at the 1st class one).

Here are the 1st class numbers:

Cost: $462

6,712 MQMs at a low 6.7 CPM

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 or business card bonus EVER before as that will prevent you from getting it 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.

  1. Renee, what do I need to do to get this economy MR on an alternate date? Delta DFW-ORD doesn’t show the SLC connection and I can’t seem to force it to happen with the $220 price?
