FREE BMI Diamond Silver Status
« on: March 13, 2011, 01:43:53 AM »
For anyone who didn't take advantage of the offer last year, BMI is again offering free Star Alliance Silver Status. Good for 2 free checked bags and priority check-in/boarding on some *A carriers. It doesn't include the 2000 mile bonus that was part of the deal last year.

Based on the T&C the answer would be no. However, if you use a different e-mail address and maybe even a different postal address it could work. YMMV.

If it doesn't work you can always do a status match to Alaska MVP from BMI Diamond Silver and try status matching back to another *A carrier.

Awesome. Thanks. Just signed up.
Now to take full advantage when flying continental. Do I need to put in any special numbers when making my reservation, or would my Reg continental number work?

Never mind. Just read the post from last year on how to do it. By using BMI number then changing it last minute to which ever one you want to use.
But will it still be on file then that you get priority stand by waiting and priority security?
Or do I just show then the *alliance silver card and I'll be cool?
Thanks

Just so everyone else can see how - http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/6684. Personally, when I have used this card I just check in online with the ff number I want to earn on and let the agent deal with making everything free. I figure I may as well use the priority lane service...but with Dan's way you can just drop your bags off and not worry about dealing with an agent.

Once you are on priority standby I doubt changing the ff number would remove you from the list (Can anyone confirm?). For priority security you can just show your ticket with the *A Silver status on it, or you can show your BMI Diamond Silver card.

In the end if changing the ff number causes any issues you can always just show a gate agent the *A silver card and they will give you the benefits, while being that much more helpful.

I did some research. Apparently, this year it is for members of the British KKK.
Membership is $20, so it is probably worth it.

I have a feeling that this will either stop working or accounts will get shut down when so many people sign up.

Just spoke with AA regarding the status match. Here is what she sent me:

Thanks for speaking with me today about the special opportunity we are offering for you to obtain American Airlines AAdvantageŽ elite status without meeting the standard qualification requirements. In order to proceed, please provide us with documentation reflecting the elite status level you have in the frequent flier program we discussed.

This documentation must reflect your name and elite status level for the 2011 Membership Year and could be in the form of a dated elite membership card or a copy or screen shot of your most recent account summary. In addition, please provide your AAdvantage number and your preferred phone number in case follow-up is necessary.

If you wish to email this documentation back to us, please be sure to "Reply" to this message - and for prompt service, do not change the subject line. Simply include a copy of your documentation in any of the following formats, not to exceed 1 mb:

          .pdf

If you prefer not to send us email, you may FAX copies of your documentation to (817) 963-7882. Be sure to include your AAdvantage number and your preferred phone number.

Please note it is not necessary to send us both an email and a FAX - one or the other will be sufficient. In either case, you can expect to hear from us within approximately one week of receipt of your credentials.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard your next American Airlines flight - as a valued elite member with all of the benefits and privileges that status affords. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,

Is this normal or should she have just done this for me via phone? I sent her a screenshot.. She said I'd get an answer within 7 days... any reason why they won't match it?

Thx

How could she do it over the phone without any proof?
Let us know what happens!

Of course the real trick will be to get Delta Gold out of BMI Silver (though that was likely a fluke) and then mAAtch to AA Plat.
