Probably not a good financial decision but...

I ended up 234 MQDs short of making Silver. We always fly first class or Delta One (international) so we don't gain very much from the medallion program. But I wanted to meet the goal of silver so we could carryover MQMs for 2019. We are at the start of a 3 month southeast Asia trip so getting MQDs by flying would be hard.
So I bought the lowest cost package which included 1000 MQMs and 299 MQDs for $299.
I will have gold medallion status by the end of June based on already booked travel in 2019 (the return leg of this trip) and then another trip to Asia 2 months after we return.
