What you are seeing is a brilliant approach to rake in a ton of cash from the BUY MQMs from Delta. The airline has truly taken printing money from elite flyers to a totally new level by charging, not just a TON more than last year, but more for some and much less for other. If I were to want to buy 10,000 MQMs as a Diamond Medallion it could set me back $1,995.00 – CRAZY – JUST CRAZY!
My wife, as a Gold Medallion, is offered the “bargain basement” price of only $1,495.00 for 10,000 MQMs. – Really?
Now the ONLY good thing they have done is, apparently, BLOCK some from buying these vastly and ridiculously over priced MQMs when it would do nothing for as a Skymiles member with NO MQMs. Some will get the message that they are NOT allowed to buy MQMs at any price.
You can take a peek at Flyer Talker’s reaction to this above but as we talked about this past weekend, even at last year’s fixed and over inflated prices, getting a Delta AMEX Reserve either personal or business, is just $450 each and you get 10,000 MQMs and Skymiles after 1st purchase worth at least $100! So let’s see, hummm, spend net $350.00 or $1995.00. What would you choose? – René
