Need 2600 miles on NWA out of DTW

Having some difficulties figuring out how to put a mileage run together. I only need 2600 miles for Silver Elite next year, flying out of Detroit. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

DTW-TPA - Wed., Dec. 15, 2004

$158 - 1966 miles round trip

Spend the day down there, and then do it again the next day

You'll have more than enough miles

My favorite trips to get miles ( I live in Detroit )

DTW-LAS ( or FNT-LAS )

leave at 3 PM. go to Hard Rock. gamble for a few hours. return on the 1040 PM

Usually in the 220$ range. sometimes less than 200

FNT-FLL right now is pretty cheap too--with an overnight stay.
187 $ through MSP.

I like vegas the best though since there is a red-eye ( and then once you make elite the red eye isn't too bad in first class )

Sweet!

I didn't see the promo fare to Vegas, thanks!

I really like the Kayak website. First time I've tried that.

You can do DTW--xxx--MEM--BNA and back for $118+tax round trip for travel Mon-Thurs or Sat with 7 day advance purchase.... fare requires a 1 day min stay, but you could do nested tickets out and back in one day in Dec., then again out and back in Jan., yielding 3000 on each round trip.

xxx can be one of a number of cities: IND, CLE, MKE, ORD, SDF.... see which midwestern city has availability for your date.

Good luck.
