Last week, I wrote about how Delta was offering a double MQM promotion on flights to/from LaGuardia as well as 2,000 bonus MQM’s and RDM’s on the first flight in addition.
Leverage Delta’s Double MQM Promotion
The promo stated, As thanks for flying Delta, you’ll earn an additional 2,000 bonus milesand 2,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you book and fly your next Delta or Delta Connection marketed and operated round-trip flight by July 10th to and from anywhere. After that, keep enjoying accelerated earning each time you fly a Delta or Delta Connection marketed and operated segment to or from LaGuardia (LGA) through July 10th for double miles and double MQMs.
When this promotion was announced last week, it seems that all SkyMiles members were able to register even though it was meant for a targeted group.
I just got off the phone with the SkyMiles support desk who told me that since I was able to register they will be honoring this and that I can go ahead and book some flights from LGA.
The longest nonstop flight Delta offers from LGA is to Denver so naturally that’s the first place I looked. I was able to find a same day turn for $238 all in.
With the double MQM’s as well as the 2,000 bonus MQM’s for your first roundtrip, I would earn 6,258 + 2,000 for a total of 8,258 MQM’s for $238 for a cost of 2.8 cents per MQM which I think is a great deal.
Will anyone else be mileage running out of LGA?
