If you sign up for the new 50% bonus before you transfer then yes.. you should.. and as long as you never transfered into that account before

If it lets you register someone reported that it worked even with previous transfers.
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.

With the 50% bonus, would you say a transfer to delta is worth more than to continental 1:1?

Not really, depends on your redemption options.

Delta is good for their cheapest award tier. Their selling value is peanuts, they aren't called SkyPesos for nothing.

So 25k EQMs gets you silver status, which is not worth much
Thanks for the spoon feeding!

When do you become Medallion Silver immediately after the 100K transfer?
My account says 25,000 MQM however membership level it states Skymiles member, it does not say Silver by when should it say silver?

When I did an Amex>Delta transfer and redemption a few months ago I had signed up for some sort of promotion that gave me  a 5k mile rebate for the first redemption on that skymiles account. Anyone know if that's still running now or have a link?

Thanks.

I think it is. Looks like it becomes effective for a year from the date you applied it (or possibly a year from the date you opened the SkyMiles acct.)
