SEA: Need 2400 EQM to requalify. Suggestions?

I have finished my planned travel for 2019, and find myself 2400 EQM short of requalifying for 75K. I would appreciate any suggestions for a cost-effective mile run in the next 7-10 days ex SEA that earns 2400 EQM?

Suggestion: read and post a request (if needed) in the consolidated AS end of year MR thread in the MR forum.

Thank you - I looked for such a thread and didn't find it on the first several pages of looking....

You can get 2668 miles from a SEA-PDX-LAX RT. Those are all segments with a lot of frequency and that tend to be cheap on short notice, though given that it's getting close to the holidays you might end up around $400 RT. You can do the RT easily in a day, so it's less time than it might take if you find a cheap transcon.

SEA-ANC or SEA-FAI. Normally I'd say SEA-BOS or SEA-RDU but with the East Caost axes thats not a great option. You also could just do 2RT SEA-PDX run in F. That would net you 875 per segment.

This is exactly the MR I did at the end of October. SEA-DAL-SEA on an E75 for $170 round-trip (Saver fare). Should net you exactly 3340 EQM. I was going to be about 3200 EQM short of MVP after all my scheduled flights for the year, so I figured what-the-heck since it only cost $170 and less than 12 hours on a Saturday (departed SEA at 7am, about a 2.5-hour layover in DAL, and touched down back at SEA at about 6pm).
