Delta limited time Status Match
« on: October 19, 2020, 03:48:02 PM »
Just got the following email from Delta:
As a valued SkyMiles Member, we know how important safety and flexibility are to you, which is why we’re disinfecting before every flight with electrostatic spraying and intensive cleaning measures, requiring all travelers and employees to wear masks or face coverings, and eliminating change fees for select flights should your plans shift.

We’ve also extended middle seat blocking through the holiday season to give you greater peace of mind when visiting friends and family. In fact, Delta is the only U.S. carrier publicly committed to blocking middle seats through January 6, 2021.

To make your return to travel more enjoyable, if you have elite status on another airline, enroll in our elevated Status Match challenge between October 19 and October 31, 2020 and you can receive complimentary Medallion® Status one Tier higher than your equivalent current status on that airline – through March 31, 2021.

Plus, complete the requirements below by March 31, 2021 to maintain that Medallion® Status through January 31, 2022:

If you receive Gold Medallion® Status: Fly 2 Qualifying Round Trips or 4 One Ways
If you receive Platinum Medallion® Status: Fly 4 Qualifying Round Trips or 8 One Ways
If you receive Diamond Medallion® Status: Fly 6 Qualifying Round Trips or 12 One Ways

Hmmm, will this be enforced?

Wow, I didn't realize that, (and that's why I was sure this wasn't really gonno get me a HT because I was sure Dan gets those notices much before I do...)
Now I can only add this DP that this offer was sent to me for an account opened within the last month or two and only has 3,815 miles in the account and after flying just 1 TLV-JFK-TLV RT that earned $763 EQD'S...

I got an automated response confirming my request. I suppose no auto-rejection is a good sign, FWIW.

Why are they asking for 2 screen shots?

Also DDMS says you keep the status until 3/31/21 but the link says:

Make sure that you're ready to begin the challenge before you submit your request. Your three-month complimentary Status period will begin within 24 hours after you receive your email confirmation. Reviews of requests may come with a delay at this time, but please know we are doing everything we can to get back to you as soon as possible. If your request is not approved, you'll receive an email notifying you of Delta's decision.

That part seems to be boilerplate. What matters is the T&C and the info on top of the page, both of which state 3/31.

Ok and anyone know what to send for the second screenshot?

Also Can I black out any of my account info or do they need to see everything?

Any easy means of gaining access to other status? E.g. hyatt - AA link?
