Quote:
BUY MQMS PURCHASE AGREEMENT TERMS & CONDITIONS
Agreement made between Delta Air Lines, Inc. ("Delta") and the SkyMiles Member ("Member") in connection with the Member's desire to participate in the Delta SkyMiles Buy MQMs Program. Delta, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to approve the Member's participation in the Delta SkyMiles Program.
  1. Pursuant to this Agreement and the order form for Buy MQMs, the Member desires to buy MQMs for posting to the Member's account, and the purchasing Member acknowledges that they will be charged certain fees for such a transaction, as set forth herein on this website. Fees assessed for the MQMs purchased under the Buy MQMs Program are non-refundable.
  2. The purchase and use of these MQMs are subject to the terms and conditions of the SkyMiles Membership Guide. To review the rules, see Membership Guide & Program Rules. Offers void where prohibited by law. Additional restrictions may apply. Delta is solely responsible for the redemption and fulfillment of MQMs.
  3. The sale, barter, gift or assignment of MQMs, mileage awards or other benefits, other than by Delta, is expressly prohibited.
  4. Please allow 24 hours for the MQMs purchased under the Buy MQMs Program to be posted to a SkyMiles account. Purchased MQMs through the Buy MQMs program will only be deposited toward a Member's 2013 MQM balance.
  5. The Buy MQMs program is a limited time offer and will be available 12:00 AM CST December 3, 2013 through 11:59 PM CST December 31, 2013.
  6. The Member's acceptance of the terms of this Agreement authorizes Delta to charge the credit card that such Member provides under the Buy MQMs Program for the amount stated, based on the number of MQMs purchased by such Member. In the event of any MQM or financial discrepancy, the payment calculations under this Agreement shall be based upon data contained in Delta's records, and the data in Delta's records shall take precedence over the data in any other records.
  7. Any MQMs purchased through this agreement may not be conveyed to persons engaged in the sale, direct or indirect, of flight MQMs or arranging for the sale of such MQMs. Any improper usage of MQMs pursuant to this Agreement and the Buy MQMs Program, or any other misuse of MQMs, shall be grounds for immediate confiscation and forfeit of such MQMs, including the adjustment of Medallion status and may be grounds for the forfeiture of all MQMs in the Member's account and the Member's ejection from the SkyMiles program.
  8. Buy MQMs may only be received into SkyMiles accounts that have been established for at least 10 days and have earned at least one mile since enrolling in the SkyMiles program. This Program may not be available in all markets or geographic areas. Member must purchase the minimum transaction amount of 2,500 MQMs per transaction. Purchased MQMs will count toward qualifications for SkyMiles Medallion and Million Miler status and will not count toward a Member's available mileage balance.
  9. Member may not purchase more than 10,000 MQMs for posting to his or her own account for the 2014 Medallion year. Purchased MQMs cannot be gifted or transferred between accounts.
  10. All amounts paid by the Member for the purchase of MQMs is pursuant to this Agreement or as otherwise set forth on the Buy MQMs purchase pages. MQM purchases are in U.S. dollars.
  11. The Member shall comply with all federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations with respect to this Agreement and the purchase of MQMs under the Buy MQMs Program.
  12. By submitting the order form for MQMs, or by allowing the credit card number provided to be charged for the purchase of MQMs under the Buy MQMs program, the Member acknowledges and signifies his or her agreement with the terms and conditions stated.
  13. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Member and Delta with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, if any, whether written or oral, relating to such subject matter.
  14. Delta Air Lines retains the right to remove purchased MQMs if payment is not received by the Bill To Party.
  15. MQMs purchased through the Buy MQMs program may count as Rollover MQMs. Any MQMs earned above your Medallion qualification level at the end of the year will automatically roll over to your MQM balance for status qualification the following year. Rollover MQMs are a Medallion benefit only; non-Medallion Members with less than 25,000 MQMs as of December 31, 2013 will not roll over unused MQMs.
  16. Members that qualify for Rollover MQMs must also earn the minimum amount of Medallion Qualification Dollars needed to qualify for Medallion status effective January 1, 2014.
  17. All Buy MQMs transactions are final. Once a transaction is complete the MQMs will not be reversed under any circumstance.
  18. Personal information provided in this application will be used by Delta Air Lines for the purpose of managing the Buy MQMs and the SkyMiles program which are necessary for your participation in this program.
  19. Offer is valid for one SkyMiles account; merged SkyMiles accounts cannot exceed the 10,000 maximum MQMs.

Hi All,

I predict "no".

Because they've given us way too much this year. I mean, 24 hours to SDC and still requiring us to have the same fare bucket? They gave us hot bagel sandwiches on some routes that previously only had the cereal option? They've given PM/DM's porsches in MSP? And they are updating IFE in 757 while cutting FC seats so you can have a more enjoyable experience?

C'mon now. They are giving us too much these days. Surely they will not give us the opportunity to buy MQM's to reach status if we are close.

This thread is aimed to inform FTers on the topic. Plenty of other forums to use to complain about the various changes.

You will without a doubt be able to buy MQMs again this year. For one, its almost all profit for them and a huge cash generator. Secondly, it gives DL staff and easy response to all those people asking to be considered for the next level status as they are so close...

You can also very likely expect a decent increase in costs this year.

With all due respect, it is a public forum and no one except the moderators can really say what is and is not allowed to be posted (and even then the mods pretty much only restrict things according to the TOS).

A year from now there will be speculation on whether DL will sell MQD. Why not? Someone who has all the MQM for the desired level but is short, say, $1,000 of MQD, may be willing to cough up the change. Should DL sell MQD on a 1 to 1 valuation? At a discount? At a premium? Not at all? Check back next year.

I don't think AA is selling EQMs though - just "boosting" you to the next level based on expected miles needed to the next level if you're within 5k of Gold and 10k for Platinum or EXP.

http://www.aa.com/i18n/urls/eliterenewal.jsp

Of note, though, unlike DL (who in the past only sold MQMs), AA is offering a boost for EQM or EQS.

After reading the thread title I clicked on the thread expecting to read some new "definitive" information on this oft discussed topic.

All I see so far is more subjective speculation. Nothing new here. <sigh>

All I see so far is more subjective speculation. Nothing new here. <sigh>
Except AA pulled the trigger today and so there is activity out there for UA and DL to react too or not. That's new.

Has anyone asked Delta customer service directly, will it be offered? If so, would they answer other than "I don't know or I haven't heard". It is hell to get to someone with authority that can answer questions with definitive answers.
