Why would you be surprised? MQMs are based on flown miles with very limited exceptions (such as the Amex card). There is no other way that I know of that is currently being offered.
You can do MCO-CVG-LGA-CVG-MCO with a same-day turnaround, all mainline and upgradable, for under $200 if you pick the right date (e.g., 10/29/05).
