Today Frequent Miler and Delta Points are joining forces to present a combination blog post! To begin, read Delta Points first to get the big picture, then please make your way to Frequent Miler for step by step details.
This is not for everyone but I hope you take the time to let us walk you through this step by step and it will at least show you the concept and maybe give you some ideas to earn a bunch of MQM’s since the US Mint is no longer sending out points by the box!
To reach Diamond Medallion status takes 125,000 MQM’s. The current Delta Amex Reserve card personal and business (you first click on personal card then look for the business link on page) both give you 10,000 for your 1st purchase if you have not had the card for 24 months. Anyone can get this card and you can have both personal and business with Delta and earn MQM’s for both. Now one of the beauties of this card is you can earn 15,000 MQM’s when you spend $30,000 or 30,000 MQM’s when you spend $60,000 on one card. Lastly you can send these bonus MQM’s to anyone you want who has a Delta SKYMILES account. Each card does carry a $450 per year fee. If you are a big spender, or are willing to follow the directions soon to follow from Frequent Miler, this can be done.
What you need to do is this. Have a husband and wife both get both cards.
You earn for the sign up bonus 10+10k MQM for your cards 20,000
You spend $120,000 total on your 2 cards – MQM earned 60,000
Your wife spends $120,000 total on her 2 cards – MQM earned 60,000
All in total MQM’s 140,000
Now there are some issues with this. The obvious one is you have to have the ability to somehow spend $240,000 in just ONE year on the 4 cards. You may be laughing out loud saying that is impossible. Maybe, maybe not. Also keep in mind that you will earn 385,000 bonus standard SKYMILES on top of the MQM’s and you can gift GOLD status to who ever you want. Also keep in mind your wife will get 20,000 MQM’s not included in the above total and will only need 5000 more MQM’s to earn Silver status at 25,000 MQM’s.
OK Rene you got me hooked. So how can I spend ¼ of a million dollars. Please click here for part two of this from Frequent Miler!
