Thanks.  Anyone know of any other tangible benefits that come with this -- or possible status match opportunities that don't ask for your flight history?

https://topbonus.airberlin.com/web/tb/start_x2 that's the link to register, it's in German but easy enough to figure out. I'll update if/when the status actually posts. Offer expires 11/30.

I sent the form in in February 10, and I just got an email informing me that I got silver status for 4 months. Seems that this challenge is still alive.
According to this post it took around 5 days for that offer.

That was an entirely different offer. I got Silver status from that and since lost it.


On this offer it said it will take a few days.

How is it a different offer, besides the fact that it's back again now? They gave Silver status for filling out a form for 4 months. It took a few days.

Agreed. Didn't mean to be snide to OP and same OP as OP (not intended).

Does this status give anything on flights with Alitalia?  It looks like there is some sort of reciprocity, but it's hard to find quality information.

Hmm last time it only took them 8 days to upgrade me to silver from when I sent them the proper form. Makes me wonder if the upgrade will happen this time...

I have an update regarding this.  We won't be getting it.

It turns out that the offer was only for people registered with the "Xing" social media site (German competitor to LinkedIn), and for residents based in a specific list of countries.

Better luck next time...

Oh well. Do you have a source for this info? I'm assuming you do, I just want to know who it is.

My source(s) were 2 blogs -- one German, one Israeli.  I don't know the policy for linking to other blogs, so if it's OK let me know and I'd be happy to provide.
