Need help with DL run out of MCO for 5000 miles.

I am based out of MCO and need 5000 base miles on Delta in order to make Gold. Looking for the cheapest way. I do have some PTO time to burn so most days are do-able. Can't travel on Thanksgiving or Christmas though.

Thanks!
Jon

How are you getting that fare? I selected the same segments but get a fare of $771.00.

Thanks for your help.

I was using Travelocity with a $188 base fare MCO-SAN with no minimum stay. Keep in mind you didn't check in until 4 days later. Fares change all the time. The cheapest base fare now MCO-SAN is $228 and also has a minimum stay requirement.
