@ est / uman:

None of the online searches of the skyteam partners have good searches + most agents on the phone have no idea about geography, so let me suggest you do the following:

Go on www.kayak.com and do a search on the date you want to travel, and use the filter on the left hand side to display only skyteam flights, or alternatively you can go to www.skyteam.com and search for flights.

You might be surprised at the combinations suggested.

You then call the airline, and with your suggestions and help, I hope you will be on your way.

Like I sais earlier, if the 30% wasn't showing at the time you transferred on your delta account, you most probably won't be getting it. The best thing to do, for those who still can, is to sign up for both offers, then wait for 2-3 days until the both offers are showing, and only then to transfer the miles. Good Luck to All

I think you're mistaken, many reports online have the 30% posting after the transfer (within 24 hours).

The miles still have not posted in my account.  When I go to my registered promos it does show all three as being signed up for on Jan. 25.  I'm getting worried that I will not be getting the 15K, should I call them up??

You can call Delta but they'll probably just read you the terms of the 30% bonus:
"Please allow up to 4 weeks after point transfer to receive mileage bonus."
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Even after the 4 weeks, Do you know if they will honor it, or will they say that the offers can't be combined?

I didn't notice that language in the Ts and Cs.  Did anyone else?

  I don't see anything in the current T and C that state the offers can't be combined.  Questions is whether or not they're still honoring it; if not, probably not worth the headache to transfer and then fight it out.

You also get 25k,000 MQM, see here.


  Dan, on the main site, you write that the mqms are good until 2/28/13.  How is that?  MQMs last 2 years?

  Ultimately:  Has anyone received the extra 30% over the last few days?

You wrote that you get Delta Silver Medallion status through 02/28/13.  So, for the purpose of being precise, I'll rephrase the question:  Does Delta Silver Medallion status last for 2 years?
