Delta just sent out a bunch of emails to people incentivizing them to increase their flying/loyalty. Offers include 75% mileage bonuses and rewards up to 100,000 miles. I haven’t gotten one (yet – fingers crossed), but I’ll give a recap tomorrow morning once the dust settles. I wanted to alert everyone now so you can make sure to NOT ignore any emails from Delta today. Feel free to post your offer below in the meantime.

Some of the links I’ve seen so far:

    Silver Medallion Gift:
    Fly six qualifying Delta segments* anytime between April 1 and June 30, 2011, and you’ll receive double flown miles. (That’s just three nonstop round-trip flights.)

    Then fly and enjoy a 75% mileage bonus on all Delta marketed/operated flights flown July 1 through December 31, 2011. As a Silver Medallion, you already earn a 25% mileage bonus. Add that to the 75% mileage bonus and you’ll be earning a total bonus of 100%. That’s double flown miles on all paid Delta flights for six months.

    I signed up with the link you provided and it accepted my registration. No confirmation email tho… I’m a lowly FO.

    I was waiting for you to post on this! I’m a DL Silver and I got the following offer:

    Fly six qualifying Delta segments* anytime between April 1 and June 30, 2011, and you’ll receive double flown miles. (That’s just three nonstop round-trip flights.)
    Then fly and enjoy a 75% mileage bonus on all Delta marketed/operated flights flown July 1 through December 31, 2011. As a Silver Medallion, you already earn a 25% mileage bonus. Add that to the 75% mileage bonus and you’ll be earning a total bonus of 100%. That’s double flown miles on all paid Delta flights for six months.

    I already have 7 flights booked on Delta for this time period so this offer looks ridiculously awesome to me. Suddenly my London trip this summer is looking like 16-18k rather than 8-9

  • Scott

    I received the FO offer too (I dropped from Plat to Silver this year). It’s certainly not a shabby offer, though I’m not in the most need of Skymiles with the 600k Delta in the bank.

  • Matt

    Got the Gold. Nice offer as I’m on pace for platinum anyway. A nice little gift, plus a carrot to go for Diamond if I fly more than anticipated.

  • Alex Hickman

    Managed to register on this one too :) Looks like my flight to ATH will be monster miles :D Silver status again!

  • Adam

    I just tried signing up via the link you gave and it didn’t accept my signup.

    We are sorry, the SkyMiles number entered is not eligible for this promotion. This offer was created specifically for the SkyMiles member who received the promotion and only the SkyMiles number listed on the promotion piece may be registered. The offer may not be transferred to other SkyMiles members.

    Thank you for your interest and click here for other promotional opportunities.

  • Sam

    Just to be clear, this doesn’t involve MQMs right?

  • Howie

    fingers crossed for a nice DM promotion too :)

  • Micheal

    @ Adam – did you have silver status? I’m a silver member and I was able to register for it.

  • Michelle

    I am a Gold member and this is what I received today. I only earn bonus miles if I re-qualify for status in 2011.

    We would like to say thank you for being a Gold Medallion® member and for your loyalty to us.
    Earn Gold Medallion status with us again for 2012 and we’ll give you 25,000 bonus miles.
    Or, earn Platinum Medallion status for 2012 and get 50,000 bonus miles.
    Or, earn Diamond Medallion status for 2012 and get 100,000 bonus miles.
    For this one-time bonus, qualify for any one of the above Medallion levels by flying the required number of Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) by December 31, 2011. Any MQMs earned above your Medallion qualification level at the end of the year will automatically roll over to your MQM balance for status qualification the following year. That’s a benefit no other airline can offer.

    Best of all, as of January 1, 2011, we eliminated mileage expiration so you can redeem miles on your timeline, not ours. And, as a Gold Medallion member with Delta, you already enjoy:
    Waived baggage fees and direct ticketing charges.
    Unlimited Rollover Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs).
    Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades for all tickets, including Award Tickets and Pay with Miles tickets.
    Delta Sky Priorityâ„¢ experience.
    SkyTeam® Elite Plus status in our global network.
    With this exclusive offer to earn up to 100,000 bonus miles, we hope you make Delta your airline of choice now and in the future.

    Great offer, I signed up for the Silver within a couple minutes of receipt. It won’t take long for me to reach gold, now – so will really be raking in extra miles.

    I am pretty certain this are straight bonus miles, though… I’ve seen no reference to this bonus impacting MQMs. I’d love it even more if it did… but I’ll take the miles for vacation travel, no problem :)

  • The Points Guy

    No MQMs, but still a smokin deal

  • http://www.aaronklein.com Aaron Klein

    FO but haven’t flown since December and don’t start up again until mid-April. I’ll probably do 8-12 segments in Q2 though.

    Still haven’t gotten an offer but I hope I get one of these!

  • The Points Guy

    Aaron- did you try signing up with the links in the post? That may work, even if you don’t get an email

  • Melody

    I never received this email yet, but here is the link for thoses wanting to sign up!

    So, unusual scenario. I received and signed up for the “no status” offer (silver status for 6 flown segments or gold for 12). After that, I came across the American Express deal that will give me silver status on Delta. I have not transferred the points from Amex yet and wanted to find out if it was possible that I could get gold status doing the following:

    Fly the 6 segments from 4/1 to 6/30, get silver status. Then, convert the points, get the 25,000 MQMs and then earn gold status.

    Is this doable, or will Delta treat it differently? I hope that isn’t confusing. Thanks in advance.

    -Jason

  • The Points Guy

    @Jason- not confusing at all. However, I’m not sure how Delta is posting the comped status. However, my gut tells me that Delta only changes your status level in the system- they don’t actually give you MQMs. SO if you did the 12 segments and got Gold, you would NOT be at 50,000 MQMs- you’d still have to get your meager MQM balance up to 75,000 MQMs in order to get Platinum. This is how it works with status gifts- as a Diamond, I can gift my friend Gold status, but they still need to get to 75,000 MQM in order to get Platinum.

    So basically, the MQMs won’t get you to Platinum after you hit gold status, however Delta does have rollover, so if you play your cards right, you can basically roll some of them over depending on how much you end up flying this year. You roll over however many miles above a certain elite level, but below the next. So if you fly 49,999 miles this year, you’ll start 2012 with 24,999. If you fly 24,999 miles this year, you start with 0 in 2012 because you hadn’t technically hit an elite level.

    Make sense?

  • Jason

    Yep, that makes sense, TPG.

    So, then my other question, somewhat related question, is this:

    If I transfer my Amex points and get silver status, it sounds like I will retain that status until Feb 2013. That said, if I earn 15,000 MQM this year (what I earned last year), it will roll over those 15k MQM in Jan 2012. Then, if I earn another 15k MQM in 2012, would I then earn Gold status? If so, when would that gold status be good until – Feb 2013 or Feb 2014?

    As you can tell, I’m very strategic =].. thanks for the insight.
