It is crunch time so “value” that is cost per mile to earn your MQMs matters little from this point out. The point of this one is you can at any coach price score 10,000 Delta MQMs quickly. If you need them, get ready for some time on a Delta jet!
Do keep in mind if you have not had the Delta Amex Reserve personal or business card you still have time to pick that up and get 10,000 MQMs for the non-waved $450 first year fee (plus you get into the Sky Clubs for a year free when you fly Delta)!
If it were me, I would be happy to pay $90 for a shot at upgrades vs the E BASIC fare but I have posted both (you can at least see the MQMs are the same). Also, if it were me, I would look at paying a bit more and maybe staying a few days to end the year in Hawaii (cuz it’s better than NYC that time of year – right)!
Here are the many days open weekday numbers:
Cost: $599 for BASIC E Class fare (no upgrades)
10,093 MQMs at 5.9 CPM
Cost: $689 for mixed X/V Class fare (YES upgrades are possible)
10,093 MQMs at 6.8 CPM
