Sweet biz price

Cheap coach biz is better

Again look at biz

This one is GOLDEN folks and you can, with a HT to tomasdev on FT, route from NYC and other locations. I would look at this one in 1st class vs coach as the value is much higher. The best part is it is same day turn i.e. no overnight. To score this kind of MQMs in about 24 hours is simply amazing. If I needed MORE MQMs I would jump all over this one. Just stunning.

I would use the tools below and search from your own home town airport of if you need 911 help to book this reach out to ADAM and his team to get this done for you. This price WILL NOT LAST LONG!

If you happen to have US BANK FlexPerks points you may be able to book this for 20k in coach and 40k in biz round trip (I have not tested but real value if you can find it).

Here is a sample set of numbers:

Cost: $797 in 1st class with bonus MQMs

Cost: $387 in main cabin coach

10818 MQMs at 7.4 CPM in 1st

6706 MQMs at 5.6 CPM in coach

Book direct on


PS – Don’t forget you can get 40k SkyMiles and 10k MQMs with EITHER Delta Amex Reserve card with the LTO going on!



New York to Dallas (via SLC) $158 & 5954 MQMs at 2.7CPM Delta Elite Mileage Run

WoW oh WoW is this one cheap but it is also in E Basic class that does earn full Delta MQMs but you get no seat choice or upgrade shot so consider the $198 fare maybe. This one is cheapest on a weekday but there are a number of weekends in November and at least one in December open for a few bucks more. Once you find your dates you want on ITA Matrix you … Continue reading

Chicago to Portland (via SEA) $218 & 4440MQMs at 5CPM Delta Weekend Elite Mileage Run ($188 E BASIC fare)

ALERT: There has been a schedule change for return. Consider PDX-ATL-ORD for more MQMs (4998)!   I am sorry I have been all but ignoring posting mileage runs on the blog but now that we only have 6 month to go before they medallion year is over it is time to get going. This one is super simple and fits my personal goal of sub 4CPM runs for weekdays in coach and sub 5CPM on … Continue reading

Baltimore to Dallas Overnight First Class Delta Elite Mileage Run $647 and 8556 MQM’s at 7.5CPM

Wednesday, April 19, 2017  by John @laptoptravel Click Here to Book This Deal via Priceline I just love a same-day or overnight Mileage Run, especially when it is a First Class deal and under 8 Cents Per Mile (CPM.) The fare is $646.60 and books into Fare Class ‘A.’ Now, you do have an overnight in Dallas, so you probably need a hotel for the 8 hours you are in Dallas. If you want this … Continue reading

SHOCKER! San Francisco to Houston (via DTW) $158 & 6310MQMs at a LOW 2.5 CPM red-eye weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run (other options too)

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 … Continue reading

Los Angels to Denver (via MSP) $108 & 4458 MQMs at 2.4 CPM weekday Delta Elite Mileage Run

With a HT to FT for this very nice find from LA Delta fans. You can even, as you can see pay a bit more for a weekend run but the best rate is weekdays. Also, if it were me, I sure would look at NOT booking E BASIC fare but choose an upgrade fare and even the one day 1st class run at sub 6CPM (a VERY good price and could be booked visa … Continue reading
