A LoyaltyLobby reader from Boston forwarded us an offer that she had received from Delta offering Gold Medallion status for six months (no strings attached) and fast track to keep it through January 31, 2020.
The fast track offer requires Boston based members to take just six flights within the six month period to keep the status (three round trips).
You can access this offer on Delta’s website here to see if you are eligible.
Here’s the email that Delta sent out:
Good offer for those that are eligible and going to take some Delta flights over the next 6 months.
Upgrades as Gold Medallion members can be on the light side but this also comes with SkyTeam Elite Plus benefits such as business class check in and lounge access on international itineraries on all alliance airlines. .
