I have had 1 delta account with over 100K for a number of years (10). I made 1 amex transfer for 50K which I received a 20K certificate.
A couple of months later they had the 100K amex prom which gets u bonus 50% and Silver. I wanted to become silver so I asked a friend who uses delta and was doing the transfers anyways to transfer 100K into a new Delta account which I just created.
Now 7 months later I realized that the new acount has 7k remaining (from some misc. bonuses and for some bookings...) so I wanted to combine it with my original account (100K) and also I will be silver.
I did the merge and now my account is showing 57K less (prob 50k from the bonus 50%, and 7K all the misc. bonuses earned on the new account).

I was aware that u cannot merge 2 silvers to become gold. I did not know that they would do this!

Any ideas???

Had this myself.
After fighting hours upon hours, I finally made them understand, that my gold status is still on the account even with the minus, and I'm matching it to Continental and AA, and I'll not fly on a airline getting me miles on a minus. So I'm not losing anything from departing Delta, the one that is the loser will be Delta losing customers.
I told them that if "you are the winner, you are the actual loser. if you let me win this fight, you will win an elite customer", so they refilled my account finally.

If you have time / strength, go ahead, fight it out.

Thank you very much!

 I called up customer care told them why I did it and they looked into it and they said that they dod not know why 50k did not get transfered over. They adjusted that and they said that the other 5k was for a new account bonus which I cannot get.
