I hope you're still correct. Once I get Delta, AA will give me it too... :)

Delta matched my BMI silver status, so I sent my Delta information to AA.  AA just emailed --

"We will need to see how you earned your Silver medallion status, as this promotion is for members who have flown 25,000 miles to get to Silver  status, not for those who have earned it by means of a credit card or company match."

Anyone else get this response? Since I have ZERO miles flown on Delta, am I out of luck?

Sounds like they're getting smarter.
You can try matching to Continental/United and then to AA as they aren't as generous with handing out elite status for a credit card as Delta is.

I called before the email and asked for the card to be expedited. The rep told me they can't do it, all they can do is send me and email confirming my status.

If you don't like what you hear the first time, try try again.

Silver card arrived today! :D

Question: I have a flight on Virgin America in a week. Would I be able to do anything to get baggage fees waived?

Just want to let people know that Delta Matched my silver BMI with a screen shot

So if you still have a screen shot fax it over to Delta, I took 3 weeks
