For the second Thursday Giveaway, I decided I would let the chosen winner pick a Delta Platinum Medallion Choice Benefit since I have yet to select one for this year. In order to be considered, you had to post a comment on the giveaway post telling us which Choice Benefit you would benefit from and why by Sunday at 5pm ET.

Since some of the Choice Benefits can’t be transferred to another person, there were only 4 options that could be picked which are in bold below:

  • 4 Delta Sky Club One-Day Passes good at over 50 airport clubs worldwide. You can use them for up to 12 months from the date of issue.
  • Travel/Retail Gift Card Select from: Tiffany & Co. Gift Card: $200, or Delta Travel Voucher: $200
  • Silver Medallion Status through February 2014, which offers unlimited complimentary upgrades, priority check-in, priority boarding, and more.

After receiving close to 1,000 comments in the past 4 days, we selected one winner at random. I’m pleased to announce that TPG reader Zach will be receiving a $200 Tiffany & Co. gift card! Here’s why Zach said he would benefit from this particular Choice Benefit:

“I’m recently engaged and my future wife and I are both avid TPG readers. We’re actually using past posts by the TPG team to piece together a Round The World Trip on Delta (using SkyMiles in business class, of course!) for our honeymoon. I’d love to be able to use the $200 Tiffany & Co. gift card toward a wedding present for our special day!”

Congratulations on both your upcoming wedding and for winning the gift card!
