Targeted: Amex/ Delta Status Match Promotion

Amex is currently running a status match promotion with Delta. You receive a $200 American Express Gift Card along with your matched status when you register, book a qualifying Delta flight, and fly by 1/31/12. Delta normally makes you fly 8,000-26,000 miles within 90 days to get your challenged status, so this is a way easier and more lucrative way.

1. REGISTER any eligible American Express® Card below by 1/31/12 and enter your Delta SkyMiles number
2. BOOK and pay for a round-trip flight by 1/31/12 at using your registered Card and fly by 1/31/12
3. RECEIVE a $200 American Express® Gift Card and, if you have elite status with any other airline, receive comparable Medallion status

I’m pretty sure this will only apply if you don’t currently have Delta status. I tried registering (for the sake of testing it for this post) and was denied. I don’t like posting targeted promotions usually, but this one is too good to pass up for those of you thinking of switching your loyalty to Delta. Feel free to report your experience in the comments.

Hat tip TPG reader Scott!

    You also have to receive an invite. I received the following message when I tried to register: “Unfortunately this campaign is by invitation only. “

  • Elichitrik

    I tried to register, and got a reply that it is by invitation only.
    Anybody for some help?

  • Sn

    What is considered an eligible flight?

  • Tpg

    SPG and PRGold denied

  • Dwt

    It looks like there are different versions of this promotion out there– I received a postcard in the mail with the offer, but with a $100 AMEX gift card

  • Brad

    Same here. No dice on this promo for me either. I tried registering my Amex Plat card and no dice. Need to be invited. :(

  • Brad

    Did you get the post card in the mail?

    This is why after being Gold or Plat. with Delta the last 5 years that I’ll stay at silver and get my Gold or Plat status on United airlines. Also the reason I dropped my Amex card and went to Citi TYP’s. I’m just tired of Amex/Delta giving status to others and never getting anything for being loyal.

  • PJ

    hi if you buy a r/t ticket do you have to complete BOTH legs by 1/31/12 ?

  • PJ

    ic no status no go:) thanks NEXT

  • Suzannehendrix

    Did not work for me either.

  • Suzannehendrix

    also, have an AMEX platinum card…did not work

  • Rich O’Malley

    0-for-2 for me. TPG, is there a way to GET invited by AMEX via talking to/emailing a rep about it? Or is that folly given their new tougher standards, it seems to me, these days? Thx.

  • L T

    Tried Delta Amex and Plat, no go. Could try others, but seems like result will be the same.

  • amb

    One funny thing I notice in the terms is that the flight doesn’t need to be taken under one’s SkyMiles number, it just says that one needs to book with the Amex card and *have* a SkyMiles number. (If I’d been one of the lucky targeted ones, I would be flying Delta, getting my $200 and matching status, and still accruing for the flight on Alaska. :)

  • Greg

    I received the “invitation only” reply as well. I guess by giving them our e-mail address we can look forward to some great spam!

  • Paullnguyen

    Do you know what the comparable status is if you are Airtran Elite?

  • Donough Roche

    I received the postcard and registered my card at the web address provided last December, and received an on-screen message that I was successful. Just to check, I tried registering the same card again and got the message that I was already successfully registered. I sent my AA Executive Platinum status to the email address, booked my flights and travelled, and have heard nothing since. Contacted Delta and they had no record of this promotion at all. This was a huge disappointment.
