Delta Air Lines has launched new “Step Up Your Status” targeted offer for Gold or Platinum status after 3 or 5 round trips by November 21, 2014.
Gold normally requires 50,000 MQM’s (Medallion Qualifying Miles) and Platinum 75,000. In addition there is spend requirement as well.
You can access this offer and try your luck here.
Note that flights that you have booked prior to the enrollment of this offer are not eligible and the travel must be completed by November 21, 2014.
The status acquired through this offer is valid until the end of January 2016.
Delta has had similar targeted offers in the past, so this is not something uncommon. If you were targeted or able to register, you should check if Delta makes sense for your travel. You can do 3 or 5 Delta round-trips cheaply if you choose to fly between highly competed markets such as Los Angeles and San Francisco.
