Fly out Saturday – back Sunday

Not bad at 10CPM

You may not want to spend Sunday the 30th in Oklahoma, but if you do not feel like donating an insane amount of money to Delta to keep your status, and you live near MSP, this could be a cheaper last minute 2018 Delta elite mileage run.

If you have not had the Delta Amex Reserve personal or business card you are just about out of 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)! Yes, if you apply fast and get spend done, you should be able to still get the cards THIS YEAR 2018 for 2019!

Keep in mind I like to see a 1st class run under 8CPM so this one, this late in the year, is not bad at all! Also, there may be a chance to same day change to get back sooner on the 30th as you can SDC free when there is ANY open 1st class seat (when you have booked 1st class that is)!

Here are the numbers:

Cost in Delta 1st class is $576

5,570 at 10.3 CPM

  1. Rene, Thanks for all your info on mileage runs. Would it be possible to get these through out the year? I can’t always do them in December.
    Keep up the great work!
