LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me an email that he had received from Delta about complimentary Club Carlson Gold status and 1000 Bonus SkyMiles after one stay between July 29 and September 30, 2013.
The offer also includes a fast track offer to keep the status until February 28, 2015, for having three stays between July 29 and December 15, 2013. The introductory Club Carlson Gold status will otherwise expire on Feb 28, 2014.
Note that the terms and conditions state that this offer is limited to targeted Delta SkyMiles Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond members that have not previously been Club Carlson members. But, if you have Delta SkyMiles status, I don’t see the downside of trying to participate to this promo.
You can access the Club Carlson website and sign up page for this promotion here. Note that you need to register for this promotion between July 8 and July 18, 2013.
This may work for Delta SkyMiles Medallion members that have not been targeted. Just sign up and hope for the best. There have been previous offers for instant Club Carlson Gold membership, so this offer is not unheard.
