It is that time of the year for many, that is, they are at least reaching some Delta elite level and thanks to one of the rock bottom cheapest Delta mileage runs from home that may be you as well. But hopefully the above is not you, EVER! You see Delta takes a very dim view when members in it’s program take a very generous Choice Benefit and then the member turns around and abuses this gift by selling it on EBAY or other similar sites. Take a look what can happen: Yep the buyer, who maybe thought they were getting a bargain, can have this purchased status revoked. Not just the buyer, but the seller that is the Diamond Medallion who offered to sell the Gold status can also have their frequent flyer account closed as well as have their status deleted by Delta.

When this video 1st came out it was so over the top I could not help but laugh and I think on some level it is meant to be that way.

Discovering a great mileage run deal from your home airport or city is always fantastic.

But what if you live somewhere like Omaha, Bismarck, or Casper — and most of the good runs begin in Chicago, New York, Vegas, or somewhere in California?

Take a positioning trip to wherever your mileage run starts!

While not ideal, it may be your only choice. (Don’t forget Adam at Juicy Miles can personalize an MQM or MQD run for you!)

“But that’s more time and money!” you may fear.

Time, yes.

Money? Maybe not. Or at least, not as much as you think. Using some points and credit card benefits, it can be done.
