That is nice and I think most of us agree that “Great Perks Await” is less than accurate when it comes to describing Silver status, but the really amazing part is you would ONLY need to fly 26,000 MQMs in 90 days to be Platinum until FEB2015! That is very achievable with a mileage run or two.
I am sure most will get a ROCK if you try to register for this, but it is worth a try. Will going for this burn up your chance for a status match from another airline? I have no idea and I doubt Delta will tell us as they are kinda “persnickety” already when it comes to all of these targeted offers (they seem to think we would be upset if they were open to all). My guess is it will NOT impact you as this is like being gifted status from someone, but that is just a guess.
That goes to another question that I am sure will come up. Say you get this, and fly 27,000 MQMs by 31DEC, will you rollover the extra MQMs? I would say NO as you have to have 75,001 to rollover above Platinum Medallion. Again just a guess, but an educated one.
What if you can register, and get the Delta AMEX Reserve card. Will the 10,000 bonus MQMs with first purchase count toward this qualification? Delta will say this is BIS ONLY or “your” butt in the seat miles that count so don’t bank on it (up to you if you want to try it).
What if you did not qualify for the free status? Then here is a 1000 point targeted anniversary bonus you will likely not get either but worth 10 seconds of your life to see if you qualify. – René
