[EDIT: Deal seems dead and gone!]


Good news for BWI & SFO & CLE Delta flyers who are looking at a mileage run to lock in status for 2013. With a BIG HT to CokeandTaco from THIS FlyerTalk post, you can put together some sweet runs. Who knows how long this will last so JUMP if you need some MQM’s to finish off the year! – René

EDIT: I broke down and booked two more days in OCT CLE-LAX so if anyone wants to run with me, email me and I will share flights and dates pvt! (can’t say no to another 10k MQM’s for about $300 ALL-IN)

Edit2: Sent a TEXT alert – did not go for some reason. Will resend!

Edit3: Please comment on the text alert if you can. I sent the blast out at 12:41 PM EST. I never via sprint got the text. Others did get the text alert. I may have to break down and go with one I have to pay for to get reliability as this FREE ways obviously has bugs! – René

  1. Sweet with my flight queue Im GM+ for 2012
    BUT this is soooo enticing and a snap NYC to bwi
    Thank you Rene
    You are the best!!!!!

  2. I tried, but in mid searching the fares went back to normal. I then tried to see if other sites could do it. Orbitz displayed the price for a while, but wouldn’t process the cheap fare. Dang, missed by minutes.

  3. I got the text at 10:42 MDT, but I left my phone in the car, so I didn’t see the alert in time to take action. I almost sent my folks to SFO for $320 RT. Dang it.

  4. Got your alert at 11:43CDT but my phone was in car I checked at 1:30PM CDT and DL was $540. AirTran and Frontier were $243 but no MQM value there. I used The ITA Software to look and also on Delta for a few dates. Must be doing something wrong or DL was gone already

  5. Booked 2 tickets BWI > SFO for July 2-6. Thank you so much!! $170 r/t inc. taxes for each ticket. What a deal!

  6. I booked two tickets, but they cost a little more because in each instance, I went JFK -SFO – BWI.

    still bargains.

    10/26-10/27 $204

    6/13-6/17 – $259

  7. When I previously used a text blast service online, it would only deliver to non-CDMA networks (AT&T and T-Mobile). Maybe that’s the issue.

  8. @Renter – txs but I have had perfect blasts this way before and quick and yet this time no. But again my thanks for the input – will keep tinkering! 😉

  9. @MSPDeltaDude – txs for feedback. Me too. I still have yet to get a text to my Sprint. BTW I sent one text from my web server and one from Google e-Mail so I think it is a Sprint thing. If you got the text, please let us know and what service you use IE AT&T etc and I would love to know the time too. Rene

  10. Rene, I got two text alerts. I am on ATT. I got one around 10:30 PST and another around 12:40 PST. Unfortunately, I missed out on the deal because I didn’t have my phone on me. Appreciate the texts. Keep ’em coming.
