Get Delta Silver Medallion Status Free (UPDATE: Possibly)
If you plan on flying Delta Air Lines in the next couple months and you don’t have elite status, I’d suggest taking advantage of their current offer of free Silver Medallion status for the next two months. As a number of readers have pointed out, the offer is restricted to select SkyMiles members, so it won’t work for everybody. But if it does for you: Silver Medallion status includes complimentary Delta Comfort within 24 hours of departure, complimentary preferred seats, unlimited complimentary upgrades, and waived baggage fees. You just need to register by May 30, 2015.
If you qualify, you’ll just need to book and fly two qualifying roundtrips within two months of enrolling to keep your status until 2016. And as part of the deal, Delta will also give you 5,000 bonus miles. The bad news is that Delta’s frequent flier program is already diluted so it probably won’t be that easy to get an upgrade or one of their preferred seats, but still, it’s free and so probably worth trying out. Also, qualifying fare classes exclude L/U/T/X/V/E. Click here to see if you can sign up.
