When it comes to Delta and targeted elite status offers, they go quite well together, as it seems just about every week they are offering up elite status for a group of targeted members. The latest offering is a fast-track promotion to either Gold or Platinum Medallion status.

Earlier this week, we saw another targeted offer for Silver Medallion status, though this one seems to be like a better offer.
