Not bad at all but showing just sub $500 now. Here is a simple KAYAK link

https://www.kayak.com/flights/SFO-ms...16-04-09/first

Simple Delta math: 7324MQMs = 6.8CPM in A class booking

$501 from DFW with overnight:

I also found a Pure "A" Version for the following overnights:

SFO - DTW - DFW - DTW - SFO

April 11th
April 12th
April 18th
April 25th
April 26th
April 29th

All under $500, and all yielding 9,200 MQM's on Delta and would be 16,100 EQM's for Alaska Airlines credited flights

Someone correct me if I am wrong. The Elite bonus does not count towards EQM, just RDM. The Class bonus counts for EQM.

Yes, you are correct.

These are just RDM totals, not EQMs, show the cent per mile totals.:
13,404 miles for MVPG75s at 3.55 cpm
12,185 miles for MVPGs at 3.91 cpm

OK. So as an FYI, theses are not good. Airlines usually price RDM around 2cpm which means it is more efficient to buy RDM on-line than take this MR. If it was 3.5 EQM this would be killer, but not RDM.

Lots of dates available from LAX or SAN except when it actually comes time to purchase. The price goes up, then get an error the fare is sold out.

LAX down to $425 - LAX - DTW - DFW - DTW - LAX most Mon, Tues in April, but price won't stick when actually purchasing.

SAN is $480 - SAN - DTW - DFW - DTW - SAN most Mon, Tues in April, but again, price won't stick when actually purchasing.

Has anyone been able to actually buy?

Ditto for me. Every time I try to book either LAX or SAN I get the message that this fare is in high demand and the price has changed to $600+ each time.
