Mileage and Accrual

For travel through December 31, 2014, Diamond Medallion members earn a 125% mileage bonus, Platinum Medallion and Gold Medallion members earn a 100% mileage bonus, while Silver Medallion members earn a 25% mileage bonus. This bonus is applied based on miles flown or a 500-mile minimum, whichever is greater.

For travel beginning January 1, 2015, general SkyMiles members earn five miles per dollar spent. Silver Medallion members earn two additional miles per dollar (for a total of seven), Gold Medallion members earn an additional three miles per dollar (for a total of eight), Platinum Medallion members earn four additional miles per dollar (for a total of nine), and Diamond Medallion members earn six additional miles per dollar (for a total of eleven).Ticket price eligible for mileage accrual includes base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges, but excludes government-imposed taxes and fees. Medallion mileage bonus per USD spent based on earned Medallion status at the time of travel. 

In order to receive the Medallion mileage bonus, a member must earn Medallion status through either the required Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) and Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs - U.S.-based members only). Members enrolled in the 90-day status match challenge are not eligible for Medallion mileage bonus during the 90-day period. Members who attain status by satisfying flight requirements above, or through the Million Miler program or Choice Benefits program will also earn the Medallion mileage bonus. The rules for Medallion mileage bonus for members who earn status upon completing a targeted promotion administered by Delta will be specified in the promotion terms and conditions. These Members will earn Medallion mileage bonuses based on their status at the time of travel as published at delta.com/medallion.

Rollover Medallion Qualification Miles

Rollover benefit means Medallion Qualification Miles earned in 2015 above a member’s earned Medallion threshold level will roll over to 2016 and count toward 2017 Medallion status qualification. Members who receive complimentary or gifted Medallion status are ineligible for rollover MQMs unless they earn more MQMs and Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs - U.S.-based members only) than the gifted status requirement. For example, if a member is gifted Silver Medallion status in 2015 and also earns 30,000 MQMs and $3,000 MQDs in 2015, s/he will be able to roll over 5,000 MQMs since the Silver Medallion requirement is 25,000 MQMs and $3,000 MQDs.

Rollover MQMs will post to your SkyMiles account by the end of January each year.
