Delta is trying to win big in New York, and it appears that they are trying to do so by giving away Platinum Medallion status for some New Yorkers.
Delta launched a targeted offer that for those who are eligible will receive complimentary Platinum Medallion Status, complimentary Delta Sky Club membership, and 100,000 Delta SkyMiles after purchasing a BusinessElite ticket. Unfortunately, I was not targeted for this offer, and I suspect that it is highly targeted.
Details of this offer include:
Register before March 31, 2014, to receive:
• 60 days of complimentary Platinum Medallion status.
• 60 days of complimentary Delta Sky Club membership.
To help you hold onto the perks that you richly deserve, all you have to do is book one BusinessElite ticket and fly within 60 days of registration, and you’ll earn:
• Platinum Medallion status through February 2015.
• Delta Sky Club membership for an additional 10 months.
• 100,000 bonus miles.
Funny how Delta claims that their SkyClubs are too crowded so they need to raise rates and strip Amex Platinum cardholders of guest access, yet they are willing to give away SkyClub access to those who can register for this.
If you’re looking for a way to rack up the Delta SkyMiles, the Delta Reserve card gives 10,000 MQM’s and 10,000 SkyMiles after the first purchase. The Platinum Delta Amex gives 35,000 bonus SkyMiles plus 5,000 MQM’s after spending $1,000, and the Delta Gold Amex gives 3o,000 bonus SkyMiles 5,000 after spending $1,000.
