When I was looking for options getting few more Delta MQM’s for the year, I came across this brand new offer from Delta. They are now selling MQM’s in the chunks of 2500 for $$$’s. Overall it is good to have options for acquiring MQM’s.
Last year I made a Diamond status with Delta due to numerous cross country trips. This year, however, zero chance as I moved out of the US this past spring. My current MQM is at 48K+. SkyTeam Elite + status might come handy at times and it would require at least Delta SkyMiles Gold status which requires 50K MQM’s.
Buying MQM’s can make sense if you are very close to making Gold, Platinum, or even Diamond and are short on time. These MQM’s are not cheap. If you have bit of time and don’t mind taking a shot trip to somewhere, it is more bang for the buck as you would also earn redeemable miles in the process.
The prices for various levels of MQM’s are as following:
