WHAT'S NEW FOR 2018 CHOICE BENEFITS:

  • Members who achieved Diamond Medallion Status for the 2018 Medallion year  now receive three Choice Benefit selections.
  • Diamond Medallion Members  receive complimentary Delta Sky Club® Membership, which must now be selected via Choice Benefits.
    • An Individual Membership can be selected by using one Choice Benefit or an Executive Membership can be selected by using two Choice Benefits.
    • Diamond Medallion Members who have complimentary Delta Sky Club access via an eligible credit card  have the new option to select a Delta Sky Club Guest Pass to receive unlimited Delta Sky Club access for up to two guests per visit when traveling with the Card Member.
  • Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members  now have the option to gift bonus miles to another Member's SkyMiles account.
  • Diamond Medallion Members  now have the ability to make multiple selections of the same benefit, excluding Global and Regional Upgrade Certificates and Delta Sky Club Memberships.
  • As a reminder, Diamond Medallion Members have the flexibility to select their Choice Benefits at different times as of February 1, 2017.

These changes offer a large number of our Members who have other means to enter Delta Sky Club, such as the Delta Reserve Card from American Express, the opportunity for an additional Choice Benefit selection to get the most of their Status. And don't worry - Diamond Medallion Members who want access to Delta Sky Club can enjoy that same benefit just like before by selecting it via Choice Benefits.

2018 Medallion Year: You may select one benefit when you qualify for Platinum Medallion Status; you may select three benefits when you qualify for Diamond Medallion Status. Select by January 31, 2019.

2019 Medallion Year: You may select one benefit when you qualify for Platinum Medallion Status; you may select three benefits when you qualify for Diamond Medallion Status. Select by January 31, 2020.
