10 Things to Know About Bonus MQM on the Updated Delta Amex Cards
Imagine waking up in your hotel room, opening the curtains, and seeing…Earth. From above it.
If all goes as planned, you may live this scenario in just six years — while enjoying a stay at the Von Braun Rotating Space Station, part of “mankinds [sic] first space station with artificial gravity.”
Achieving Million Miler status is a pretty big accomplishment. Each time you accrue a million miles on an airline, the carrier gives you a gift of some sort.
Delta gives you annual Silver at 1M or Gold status at 2M & 3M or Platinum at 4M (depending on how many millions of miles you’ve earned) and some luggage or jewelry.
United, meanwhile, steps it up. While UA may not give you premium luggage or shiny bracelets, they gift both you and a companion annual elite status. American gives you miles and upgrades.
Is it time for once Delta copy United and American — and up their Million Miler game?
For better or worse, I’m a loyal Delta flyer. Delta’s co-branded American Express cards sort of come with that territory. But Chase’s credit cards, however, are starting to pique my interest (especially now that I’m finally dipping under 5/24!) when it comes to actual point accrual and redemption. And their low to no annual fees sure are interesting, too.
Delta American Express cards offer cardholders decent-ish benefits. But points earnings and other areas leave something to be desired.
Where are some areas Delta and American Express can improve its premium Reserve cards?
Did you take a Labor Day weekend trip? Or was cost too prohibitive? You’re definitely not alone if you fall into the latter group.
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.
Money? Maybe not. Or at least, not as much as you think. Using some points and credit card benefits, it can be done.
