One of the things I love about Delta is the ability to make Silver Medallion each year with ease. Delta Silver Medallion status can be earned with 25,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles or by flying 30 segments.
Even though Silver Medallion is the first stepping stone in the Delta Medallion status levels, it’s not without benefits. For example, Silver Medallion members receive the following benefits:
- Unlimited complimentary upgrades that clear at the 1 day window
- Unlimited companion upgrades
- Preferred seating
- Discounted economy comfort seating
- Priority waitlist
- 25% mileage bonus
- Waived baggage fees
- Priority checking and boarding
So how does one earn Silver Medallion status with just one flight segment?
This may seem obvious for some of the more experienced frequent flyers. But there may be more way than one to skin this cat.
