Do you get MQS for flights booked with points on delta?

Not if you book with points but if you have a Delta Credit Card and pay with points then you get MQMs and MQSs

Nope

Perfect. Thanks D1. I’m 2 segments away from keeping my platinum but I don’t really care to go anywhere right now.

No problem. You have to look at cash rates and use the “Pay with Points” option in case you haven’t done it before. It’s like $100 for 10,000 miles I think.

D1 can you explain a little more? Points or skymiles? I'm delta diamond and I might have just lost on a ton of pts.

If you search for a flight as a cash rate, some flights will give you an option to “Pay with Miles” under the cash rate. If all legs have this, you can deduct miles at 5,000 increments worth $50 per 5k before checking out. Using this method let’s you get all of your MQMs and MQSs but with 0 to little MQDs earned. You must have a Delta Amex to do this but I use it all the time to score MQMs

To add onto C1, delta sometimes lets you spend sky miles instead of dollars. it’s sometimes worth it, but you’re redeeming points (skymiles) at a value of 1 cent per point so the value is often not there.

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
