One of the HOTTEST topics right now is: “Will Delta sell MQMs this year?”! I am getting emails each day and FlyerTalk has a thread with over 10,000 views talking about this.
Delta, like with most things, will not tell us for fear of “whatever” so don’t expect to hear about this in advance. Having said that, I have posted in the past that it would be financially stupid for Delta NOT to sell them as they are such an EASY money maker for the airline. They are WAY over priced but flyers snap them up like candy each year and they cost the airline nothing. What’s not to love as a DAL shareholder?
Now if they do come up for sale again, should you buy then? Please don’t do it. At last year’s prices you are paying 10 CPM or cents per mile; that is a lot of cash! Consider this, you can have and hold BOTH the personal Delta AMEX Reserve card and the business Delta AMEX Reserve card at the same time. If you have not had the personal Delta Gold or Platinum or Reserve card for 365+ days you can get the personal Reserve card new card 10,000 MQM bonus with first purchase. If you have not had the business Delta Gold or Platinum or Reserve card for 365+ days you can get the business Reserve card new card 10,000 MQM bonus with first purchase. Yes, the cost for each is $450 but you also get 10,000 Skymiles also with first purchase worth at least $100 in value. When you compare this to the Delta MQM sales price it is just 3.5 CPM or 1/3 of price of last years Delta MQM sale. You see the clear simple logic and you still have time to get either card and get the spend done before year end!
Now where is this going with SWAG Saturday and for a chance to win a power brick and some Delta SWAG you see above? First the rules, as each week, are HERE so read them. Next on to a simple question you must answer, on the blog, is:
Will Delta offer MQMs for sale this year?
You just have to tell us what you think. You can also, if you want, tell us if you think it is a good idea for the airline, if it is a good price or anything like that but for a chance to win all you have to say is YES or NO! That simple. Have fun – René
