SkyMiles Medallion® Status Match Challenge

If you're a top-tier flyer with another airline, you can request to participate in our one-time SkyMiles Medallion Status Match Challenge between now and June 30, 2014, and qualify for comparable status with the Medallion program.

As a Medallion member, you'll enjoy exclusive privileges such as Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades for paid tickets, access to Preferred Seats, and waived baggage fees.

STEP 1 | PROGRAM DETAILS

If you meet the criteria to participate, you will receive Platinum, Gold or Silver Medallion status for 90 days, based on your current elite level with another airline. The 90-day period will start when a member's request has been processed.

If you registered for the offer prior to June 30, 2013 and you complete the flight requirements, your Medallion status will be maintained until February 28, 2014.

If you register for the offer between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 and you complete the flight requirements, your Medallion status will be maintained until February 28, 2015.

In order to extend your Medallion status after the 90-days, you'll need to earn a specific number of Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) within the 90-days of enrolling by flying Delta or Delta Connection®. The number of MQMs or MQSs required is based on your matched Medallion level.

 

First, confirm your comparable status with the SkyMiles program:

 

Delta SkyMiles Medallion Status

Silver

Gold

Platinum

American AAdvantage Status

Gold

Platinum

Executive Platinum

United Mileage Plus Status

Premier Silver

Premier Gold

Premier Platinum / Platinum 1K

Then, determine the MQMs or MQSs needed to retain status:

Delta SkyMiles Medallion Status

Silver

Gold

Platinum

Flight Requirements on Delta or Delta Connection

8,000 MQMs or 10 MQSs

16,000 MQMs or 20 MQSs

26,000 MQMs or 35 MQSs

Customers who enroll in the Challenge and meet the flight requirement within a 90-day period from enrollment will retain their matched Medallion status through February 28, 2015 (2014 if you registered prior to July 1, 2013), unless a higher Medallion level is earned by reaching published Medallion qualification thresholds. Medallion status must be earned in subsequent years by traveling the required amount of MQMs or MQSs.

Visit delta.com/medallion for more information on earning MQMs and MQSs and additional details on Medallion program benefits.

Criteria for participation:

  • Member has not received a status match or complimentary Medallion status in the past
  • Is currently a non-Medallion member
  • Must present valid and current elite credential or statement showing elite status from another airline

Please Note:

  • A Medallion membership card will be not issued for the 90-day qualification period. You may enjoy Medallion benefits on Delta or Delta Connection by logging in at delta.com or providing your SkyMiles number when making reservations or at check-in. During the 90-day period, you will not have access to all reciprocal Medallion benefits with Delta's partner airlines, including access to SkyTeam┬« lounges.
  • Members who are matched to Platinum Medallion status will not be eligible for Choice Benefits until the flight requirement to maintain Platinum Medallion status is met. If the member does not meet the flight requirement, the member will not be eligible for Choice Benefits.
  • Through this offer, you may maintain the same or lower Medallion status level as your matched status. If you are matched to Silver Medallion status, you will not be able to earn Gold Medallion status through this offer, even if you will fly more than 16,000 MQMs or 20 MQSs during the offer period. But if you have been matched to Gold Medallion status and you only fly 8,000 MQMs or 10 MQSs, you will earn Silver Medallion status. Your Medallion status will be returned to non-Medallion status if you are unable to complete the minimum flight requirement within the 90-day period.
  • Medallion status match is only offered for Delta Platinum, Gold and Silver Medallion levels.
