How To Gift Delta Silver Status To Someone

If you’d like to gift Silver status to someone simply follow these steps:

1. Earn Delta Platinum Status

I earned Delta Platinum status the easy way, by earning 60,000 Delta Medallion Qualifying Miles through eligible credit card spend.

Key Link: Delta Reserve card

Key Link: Delta Reserve for Business card

Key Link: Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

The Delta Reserve card comes with MQMs after meeting initial spending requirements and then bonus MQMs can be earned and gifted after meeting further spending requirements.

Once you earn Delta Platinum status, proceed to the next step.

2. Navigate To Delta’s Choice Benefit Website

You can see your eligible Choice Benefit selection options by going to the Delta website here. A list of options will be displayed.

3. Make Your Selection

Make your Delta choice benefit selection, enter your companion’s information and click continue.

4. Confirm Your Selection

After you are sure and have made your selection, you will be prompted to confirm your selection to be double sure this is what you would like to chose.

How long will the gifted status be good for?

For selections made for 2015 Choice Benefits, companion status is good through January 31, 2016.

Bottom Line

Congratulations Alex. We’ll send you an email with instructions on how to claim your Delta Silver Status.
