Delta Air Lines is out with the first promo of the year offering SkyMiles® members the opportunity to earn bonus Medallion Qualifying Dollars (MQDs) on select flights to the Pacific Northwest. With the changes that Delta made to SkyMiles® in 2024, MQDs are the only metric being measured for Medallion qualification.

Qualifying Dates: Travel must be booked between: January 17, 2024 – February, 1 2024, and travel must occur between: February 2, 2024 – March 15, 2024.

Offer: SkyMiles Members (“Members”) will earn additional Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) for select Revenue and Award Travel flights to or from qualifying destinations, that are both marketed (flight number begins with ‘DL’) and operated by Delta Air Lines or Delta Connection® carriers and are booked then flown during the dates specified above.  Members will earn 10% additional MQDs on Main Cabin purchased tickets (Basic Economy excluded) and 20% additional MQDs on Delta Comfort+ and First Class (Premium Cabin) purchased tickets. If a ticket includes multiple cabins or product types, the promotional MQDs will be prorated by cabin or product. Travel must occur by March 15, 2024 to qualify. Qualifying flight activity for this offer is limited to itineraries originating or terminating in the following destinations:

  • Flights originating in the U.S. 50 to Seattle (SEA), Boise (BOI), Eugene (EUG), Spokane (GEG), Medford (MFR), Portland (PDX), Pasco/Tri-Cities (PSC), or Redmond (RDM)​; and
  • Flights originating in Seattle (SEA), Boise (BOI), Eugene (EUG), Spokane (GEG), Medford (MFR), Portland (PDX), Pasco/Tri-Cities (PSC), or Redmond (RDM) to U.S. 50.

Qualifying Activity: Qualifying flight activity includes paid (retail) tickets, Award Tickets, Miles + Cash Tickets, Pay with Miles tickets, and post-purchase upgrades (excluding those purchased at check in or at the gate), but does not include travel on partner airlines (even if marketed by Delta), exception fares (including Delta Vacations), purchases of products other than Delta tickets, and any fees associated with travel (e.g., baggage, cancellation fees). If a Member uses an Upgrade Certificate, receives a Complimentary Upgrade, purchases an upgrade offered at check in or at the gate, or receives an operational upgrade, the Member will not earn the Premium Cabin bonus associated with the upgraded cabin. Companions traveling on Delta SkyMiles American Express Companion Certificates are not eligible to earn MQDs, but the paid ticket of the certificate holder will qualify for MQDs.  Free, barter, pass travel and other tickets not eligible for mileage accrual will not earn MQDs.

MQDs are earned by the member who is flying, regardless of who booked or redeemed miles for the ticket, and are awarded after the ticket is flown. Additional MQDs awarded will be calculated based on the standard MQDs awarded by Delta for flight activity, excluding any MQD Boost, bonus or promotional MQDs. Travel Period is calculated based on the day the flight departs; flights departing on or after March 16, 2024 will not earn promotional MQDs. Departure date for the specific flight is specified on the ticket.

SkyMiles: All SkyMiles Program rules apply to SkyMiles Program membership, miles, offers, MQD accrual mile accrual, mile redemption, and travel benefits. To review the rules, please visit: SkyMiles Program Rules | Delta Air Lines

Anthony’s Take: If you’re flying between any of the destinations in this promo, register now. This is the first that we’ve seen in 2024, but I have a feeling we’ll see other bonus opportunities.
