SkyMiles Silver Medallion Status

GET TO KNOW MEDALLION STATUS

Discover Silver Medallion Benefits


When you reach Medallion Status, you unlock amazing benefits like Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades, Priority Boarding, and waived baggage fees. Plus, benefits that only Delta offers like exclusive rates on CLEAR® memberships, Rollover MQMs and more.

With Silver, You Earn More


As you travel with Silver Medallion Status, you’ll earn more miles. Plus, the Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) you earn above your Medallion Tier qualification threshold will roll over to the next qualification year to give you a jump start on earning Status again – this is known as “Rollover MQMs.” 

  • 7 miles per dollar*(1)
  • Unlimited Rollover MQMs

Here’s an example of how Rollover MQMs work: You reach Silver Medallion Status for 2018 by earning 45,000 MQMs and $6,000 MQDs during the 2017 calendar year. You only needed 25,000 MQMs to reach Silver and had enough MQDs for Gold, but didn’t quite hit the 50,000 MQMs needed to reach Gold. With Rollover MQMs, you’ll be able to rollover the 20,000 MQMs you earned above and beyond the Silver requirement, to your next year’s balance giving you a head start toward earning Status again for 2019. We’ll automatically rollover your MQMs by the end of January each year.

The Rollover MQMs benefit is exclusive to Delta, and only for our Medallion Members.
