This sweet BBQ type run is back. For those who have not been to Dallas before they do have some of the best BBQ around. Not to mention by August / September the brand new Amex Centurion club should be open. If I lived in the MSP area I would do the September run but if you are tight on time the same day ones are still sub 8CPM in business class and I rate that as a good price (I like sub 4 CPM in coach btw).

For the direct links to Delta below you need to 1st be logged in to your Delta account for them to work correctly. This deal may die quick so if you want it book fast as you do have 24 hours to cancel free from Delta.

Here are the numbers:

  • Cost: $438 for overnight at 7.4CPM
  • Cost: $474 for same day turn at 7.9CPM
  • 5,938 elite MQMs – SkyMiles based on status times base price
  • Book direct on Delta after you log in with links below
  • Link to 18/19 Sept overnight
  • Link to 22 Aug same day
  • Link to 28 Aug same day

It takes much time to run a blog and I thank you in advance by supporting the blog next time you need a travel card!



  1. Thank you very much, René, for thinking of your followers at the MSP hub where it is normally so difficult to find these kind of mileage runs. The way you set it up so clearly with the links and instructions was also incredibly helpful!

  2. Update — as of today 7/26, I am getting $446 non stop same day turn on 8/22/18 on a crj 900 in first class. 2557 mqm

  3. how do you determine mqms earned? Your example shows an example that I cannot find.

  4. @tomas – As shown in screen shot in post above, MQMs will be shown before you purchase on Delta.com

  5. maybe more than one access for delta.com but I do not see what you have pictured. No problem.
