I came across an ad on Facebook for a new “coming soon” website for “The Window Seat Shop” coming soon to JFK (surely in Terminal 4).

The website is and here’s what the website says now as t prepares to launch online Nov 14th at midnight for cardholders and the 15th for everyone else, just after the first day the brick and mortar shop is open. I cannot imagine there is so much demand to need a presale here 😉 

“Starting 11/14/23, there will be a new way to grow your world.

Inside The Window Seat Shop at JFK, you’ll find items from many of the destinations Delta flies to. From French chocolate, to mochila bags from Colombia, to spices from Egypt, everything at The Window Seat Shop increases your earn toward 2025 Medallion® Status.

Stock up on gifts for the holiday season and get a head start on your 2025 Status. SkyMiles Members can earn $1 Medallion® Qualification Dollar (MQD) for each $1 you spend at The Window Seat Shop.

Delta SkyMiles® American Express Card Members can purchase items from The Window Seat Shop online right here starting at 12:00AM (ET) on 11/14/23.

Online access for non-Card Members begins on 11/15/23 at 12:00AM (ET).”

So, maybe you’ll find some cool holiday presents here and earn some MQDs in the process? Still, considering the MQD requirement, it’s hard to imagine this will make much of a dent on high level status – unless of course you find a way to resell the merch!

    • If you are asking if there is any point to shopping between now and Dec 31, 2023 then you are correct, there is not.

      MDQ earnings for status in the new format begin Jan 1, 2024 for the 2024/2025 program year. Hope that helps!
