Delta has been emailing instant Silver offers with a fast track offer for up to Platinum status and keeping it until February, 2015, for flying set number of MQM’s (Medallion Qualifying Miles) or MQS’s (Medallion Qualifying Segments) within 90-day period.
You can can register for this offer up to December 31, 2013, and the 90-day fast track qualification period starts from the registration date.
The requirement for qualifying Silver status under this fast track offer is either 8,000 MQM’s or 10 MQS’s, 16,000 MQM’s or 20 MQS’s for Gold and 26,000 MQM’s or 35 MQS’s for Platinum. Only flights on Delta or Delta Connection qualify for this offer.
Delta is trying to target here fliers that don’t actively fly on Delta and tries to lure them in to the SkyMiles Medallion program. If you don’t have status with any airline and got targeted for this, it could be worth taking advantage of.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Eligibility: Only members who receive this communication directly from Delta Air Lines are eligible to participate in this offer. This offer is nontransferable. To be eligible for the status upgrade, a Member must (i) register online by December 31, 2013, and (ii) not have received a status match or complimentary SkyMiles Medallion® status in the past, and not currently be a Medallion member.
Offer: If you meet the criteria to participate, you will receive Silver Medallion status for 90 days. The 90-day period will start when a member’s request has been processed. Please allow up to 10 business days for enrollment. In order to extend your Medallion status after the 90 days, you’ll need to earn a specific number of Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) within the 90 days of enrolling by flying on Delta or Delta Connection® flights. Upon reaching the required MQMs or MQSs, your Medallion status will automatically be extended through February 2015. Your Medallion status will be returned to non-Medallion status if you are unable to complete the minimum flight requirement within the 90-day period. Medallion status must be earned in subsequent years by traveling the required Medallion Qualification Miles or Medallion Qualification Segments. Members who receive 90-day Silver Medallion status will not receive credentials. A Medallion membership card will be not issued for the 90-day qualification period. You may enjoy Medallion benefits on Delta or Delta Connection® by logging in at delta.com or providing your SkyMiles number when making reservations or at check-in. During the 90 day period, you will not have access to all reciprocal Medallion benefits with Delta’s partner airlines. For complete SkyMiles program rules, visit Membership Guide & Program Rules. Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) are calculated based on distance traveled and fare class purchased on qualifying flights and do not include bonus miles.
