2021 Status Boost® 
Earn An Extra Boost to 2022 Medallion® Status

We know travel may look different this year. That’s why we’re giving Card Members more value to help you reach 2022 Medallion Status at home or on the go. In 2021, you can earn 25% more Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) with Status Boost on your Delta SkyMiles Reserve, Delta SkyMiles Reserve Business, Delta SkyMiles Platinum and Delta SkyMiles Platinum Business American Express Cards.
Delta SkyMiles Platinum Card Members

With Status Boost in 2021, you can earn 12,500 MQMs after you spend $25,000 in purchases on your Delta Platinum Card, up to two times. That’s 2,500 more MQMs than the 10,000 MQMs you usually earn, which means you could reach Silver Medallion Status on Card purchases alone. Learn more about your Card benefits.

Delta SkyMiles Reserve Card Members

With Status Boost in 2021, you can earn 18,750 MQMs after you spend $30,000 in purchases on your Delta Reserve Card, up to four times. That’s 3,750 more MQMs than the 15,000 MQMs you usually earn, which means you could reach Platinum Medallion Status on Card purchases alone. Learn more about your Card benefits.

Terms & Conditions

If in any calendar year eligible purchases on the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card or the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card are $30,000 or more, the Basic Card Member will be awarded 15,000 Medallion Qualification Miles ("MQMs" as defined in the Delta SkyMiles Membership Guide and Program Rules). If in that same calendar year eligible purchases on the Card are $60,000, $90,000, and $120,000 or more, the Basic Card Member will be awarded an additional 15,000 MQMs for each threshold. The close of the calendar year is December 31, without regard to the time of the year that the account is opened. This means that for the first year of Card Membership, the Card Member's eligibility period for the Status Boost benefit may be less than twelve months. Eligible purchases means purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees, interest charges, cash advances, purchases of travelers' checks, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person transactions, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Eligible purchases may fall outside of a calendar year in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped. Additional Card Member(s) are not eligible to receive MQMs through the Status Boost benefit, however, all eligible purchases by the Additional Card Member(s) will count towards the Basic Card Member's spend level to reach the Status Boost thresholds. To receive the MQMs, your account must not be canceled or past due at the time the MQMs are posted to your account. MQMs only count towards Medallion Status. MQMs cannot be redeemed toward Award Travel or other Delta redemption options. Card Members are only eligible to receive one annual bonus per threshold per calendar year for each type of eligible Delta SkyMiles® Card or the Delta SkyMiles® Business Card (e.g., Platinum or Reserve) that is linked to the same SkyMiles account. MQMs can be kept by the Basic Card Member or gifted to someone else. MQM gift recipients must have a valid SkyMiles account. If a MQM gift recipient is not designated within 30 days of the MQMs being made available, the MQMs will be deposited in the Basic Card Member's SkyMiles account. You can claim or gift MQMs by logging into delta.com and reviewing your SkyMiles account. Eligibility for Delta's Medallion Status is not based on MQMs alone. Delta SkyMiles members can qualify for Medallion Status through a combination of miles or segments flown and annual spending.
