If you didn’t quite make the Medallion status you were hoping for, for 2014, Delta is extending their Buy MQM offer through January 31st.

They will continue selling Medallion Qualifying Miles for those members who are trying to reach Diamond, Platinum, Gold, or Silver Medallion status for 2014.

SkyMiles members may purchase between 2,500 and 10,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) that will post to your 2013 MQM balance and apply toward your 2014 status.

The prices will vary based on your current Medallion status.

Diamond and Platinum Medallion prices for MQM’s are:

2,500 MQM’s for $795
5,000 MQM’s for $1,195
7,500 MQM’s for $1,595
10,000 MQM’s for $1,995

Gold Medallion prices for MQM’s are:

2,500 MQM’s for $595
5,000 MQM’s for $895
7,500 MQM’s for $1,195
10,000 MQM’s for $1,495

Silver Medallion prices for MQM’s are:

2,500 MQM’s for $495
5,000 MQM’s for $695
7,500 MQM’s for $995
10,000 MQM’s for $1,195

General Member prices for MQM’s are:

5,000 MQM’s for $675
7,500 MQM’s for $875
10,000 MQM’s for $1,075

As you can see Delta is charging current Platinum and Diamond Medallion members the most to buy MQM’s.

Terms and Conditions:

  • MQMs purchased will be deposited to your 2013 MQM balance
  • MQMs purchased through this Buy MQMs offer are nonrefundable

  • Members who qualify for Rollover MQMs toward 2015 Medallion status must also earn the minimum amount of Medallion Qualification Dollars effective for January 1, 2014
  • If applicable, Medallion status and Million Miler™ status will be updated within 24 hours of MQMs purchase
  • The minimum/maximum MQMs per transaction are 2,500 / 10,000
  • The maximum MQMs that may be purchased for one SkyMiles account for the 2014 Medallion year is 10,000
  • All transactions are processed in U.S. dollars
  • All the terms and conditions of the SkyMiles program apply

Bottom Line

If you are within an arm’s reach of moving up, it’s something to consider, but keep in mind that I think there are much cheaper ways to earn MQM’s such as mileage running or through their credit cards.

  1. Just to be sure, I didn’t read the fine print but I would assume any travel this year (2014) only applies to status for 2014? And 2013 travel applies to 2013 status. Otherwise, I could combine a mileage run in January with this offer to get status.

  2. The mileage booster on a trip lists 3000 miles for $59 – isn’t that a better deal any day than these prices, if one is already booked on a bunch of trips,as I am for my weekly work travel?

  3. when will delta sell the mqms for this year 2014 i have spent 9k on bs commit flights but will be about 8000 miles short of platinum
