    We booked 7 tickets Memorial Day weekend:
    Four May 24 - May 27 on American Airlines from LGA
    Three May 25 - May 28 on United Airlines from EWR

    May 24-May 27 is no longer available for this price and the tickets I bought cost $400 now.

    Many dates are still available and come up with kayak.com Flexible Month search. Good luck!

    Seems like a good fare if you want to fly that route anyway, but 7 * $150 = $1050 and earns you 7 * 728 * 2 = 10,192 EQM. Doesn't strike me like an amazing deal to earn status.

    Why did you multiply by 7? Does that change something?

    7 because you said you booked seven: "We booked 7 tickets Memorial Day weekend:"

    I am not a math professor :D but I know it doesn't change anything as far as the cost per EQM is concerned. But what I wanted to reflect is your actual "haul".

    Ah, sorry, misinterpreted :) I thought there was some bonus for flying 10k miles with AA between Chicago these days!

    Yes, you're correct, not a good MR by any means, but we need to go to Chicago that weekend anyhow and this is quite cheap :) In other words, a "good deal".
