When December rolls around, I bet our beloved mothership will offer to sell you MQMs again for perhaps even MORE insane and over inflated prices than last year. You can avoid this price gouging and pre-Skymiles2015 earn some nice Skymiles on your run. Oh, and maybe take a little vacation along the way. I mean just take a look at some of the recent deals that I have posted over on DeltaMileageRun.com in this past week: Boston to Los Angeles 1st class $652 & 7834MQMS at 8.3CPM Chicago to Hawaii $628 & 11000MQMs at 5.7CPM Austin to Anchorage $463 & 8824MQMs at 5.2CPM New York to Burbank $339 & 6716MQMs at 5CPM Kansas City to Seattle or Las Vegas 1st class $526 & 8624MQMs at 6.1CPM Salt Lake to New York $198 & 4700MQMs at 4.2CPM Toronto to South Africa $975 & 19458MQMs at 5CPM Nassau to Hawaii 1st class…

Oh I really like this one and could be just perfect for a weekend only runner. Plus, it is all in 1st class at well below 10CPM (sorta my threshold for 1st class runs). Plus, you get to spend most of a full day in LAX and fly home before work Monday. Here are the numbers: Cost $652 in 1st class 7,834 MQMs at 8.3CPM Bookable on Delta.com DM yields a nice 14,362 Skymiles per CWSI.net! I guess I don’t have a problem with FCM when the prices are this good for run – right (FCM = first class monetization btw)

A Miami Mileage Run: The VIP lounge at MIA & positioning flight A Miami Mileage Run: The run to Phoenix A Miami Mileage Run: The Sheraton MIA & time in Miami A Miami Mileage Run: The Delta Skyclub in MIA A Miami Mileage Run: The totals & the flight home When a 6486 MQM mile Miami to Phoenix Delta Mileage Run pops up for $208 all-in you have to see if you can make it happen. Now in my case, my dad is not far from Miami so that is just a bonus. Oh, and when a very fun (& all around nice guy) reader also lives in Miami you just must make this run work. But the problem was I was going to be home one day after my 18,000 mile mega run to Sweden and back. Having just one day to get my “sea legs” back would be…

Oh I may get yelled at for even posting this one but for those who don’t have a lot of time off from work this one could work. PLEASE keep in mind ATL-HNL and back is not upgrade eligible so if you want the best CPM that is part of the route. However, for just over 6CPM you can work this many ways and be all upgrade eligible. You can even route via NYC for MAX MQMs again at a higher price if the BIG number is all you want. Here is the best CPM one: Cost $628 11,000 MQMs at 5.7CPM Bookable on Delta.com DM yields a HUGE 24,752 Skymiles per CWSI.net! I would think flying that day upgrades should be very good (at least my guess). Same on the Friday coming back. 😉 Oh and clearly there are ways to make this a mini vacation run at a…
