This one I really love and if you like visits to the Centurion Lounge DFW and HardEightBBQ near Dallas airport you should too. Here are all the reasons this rocks. First, it is all in first and that is a better way to run. Next, you get 24 hours in Dallas so plenty of lounge and other time to have fun in town. Next, since you are booking 1st class, you are a ton of MQMs and depending on your status a nice chunk of SkyMiles even (but who cares about those when we are talking mileage runs).

Also, as you can see from the other two shots above, you can run it in coach for a weekend run and your upgrade shot should be good since it is a Friday/Saturday flying.

I am finding scattered dates for this deal in NOV & DEC. You can find them all simply by searching on but BE SURE to choose via SLC both way for max MQMs.

Anyway here are the 1st class numbers:

Cost: $504

8,556 MQMs at 5.9CPM

 I have included the Google Flights or Kayak links and for those of you new to this, 1st log in to your SkyMiles account and THEN you click the above links and it will, after you choose flights, send them over to Very simple! – René



  1. Strange Deal with the AMEX Delta Biz Application – I have a Biz Delta Platinum, but just tried to get the Reserve Biz too. When I went to enter my “Sole Proprietor” information, it blacked out the EIN drop-down and appeared to only want my personal SSN. If I remember from my first biz card application, I had to use an EIN and the SSN. Now, the only way to keep the EIN drop-down active is to say I am a “Corporation” or “Partnership.” Does this seem right?

  2. @Elivis – No, this is normal. You can use either EIN or SSN. Sometimes you can get bonus again if you use one each over time 😉
