So I'm at the airport now at bwi, and told the check in abt the silver status, gave them my numbers, and even had a screenshot showing it as silver, but the guy said on his system it didn't say silver, and had to pay for baggage...anyone? Does anyone know customer service email ?

I now have two BMI Silver accounts -- one expires 05/11 with 2000 miles, the other I set up today expires 03/12.

The email from AA says to provide BMI status information for the 2011 membership year.  Which account would be the best to use for trying to get an AA status match, the one that expires 05/11, or the 03/12 account?

I just heard the same, but had the CSR to send me the status match request email anyway.  I plan to send in my information, hence my post immediately above yours.

In a match? How would that happen?

So basically if I do the matches I'll have status on one world *A and skyteam?
And do I need the card to do the match or is a online statement enough?

if I make a new aa account, make the bmi>delta>aa status match (to my new account) and then combine my 2 aa accounts would I be able to do status match in the future, or will they say I already got it?

can I merge my new bmi account that has no miles, with my last year's acount that has miles on it, and keep silver status?
Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

since officially this deal is for new users only - officially you'd be tipping your hand to your violation of the rules - no one is likely to know for sure unless they try...YMMV

Guys, I call myself the godfather of bmi (dan would agree I think), and just bumping into this thread, I saw something that I forewarned on dd.com (the main site).

Here the post that confirmed it:

nossif:
So I'm at the airport now at bwi, and told the check in abt the silver status, gave them my numbers, and even had a screenshot showing it as silver, but the guy said on his system it didn't say silver, and had to pay for baggage...anyone?

Unfortunately I was correct.

On another note, there is no problem opening a second acc, just make slight changes to address, email. and phone # and you will be ok.

Check in online with BMI ff # and you're BP will say *S on it. If you want to, change it later to the program you want to earn miles with
