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

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.

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.
