Need help with Elite Upgrade fares

I am currently a NW silver elite and will attain that status for the 2002 year. My question is does anyone know any good fares that qualify under the F, P Y, B or M fares so I can fly 3 Round trips for a good price and be upgraded to gold status. I would have to complete the travel either in one day or a saturday night stayover. I am based in PHX, or TUS can also work. Thanks a lot.


P.S.

I am flying to Hartford area in November.

Anyone know anything out of DTW, MSP or MEM? You could do 2 r/ts in a day, theoretically, if something is close to a hub, just by getting to the hub.

Actually, Detroit to Flint MI is $274, a lot of money, but quick and there are frequent flights. It should be easy to do a run of 2 r/ts this way, a B fare BTW.

I'm going from BNA to BDL on 11/7 returning on 11/8 for $103.00. Routing is BNA-DTW-BDL-DTW-BNA.

Basically look for a market with Southwest in it. NW matches their fares for the most part.

Do that once or twice....

The problem with most of the matched fares is that they are K fares and don't count toward these elite upgrade programs.
