I have just about sifted through the mountain of mail that awaited me after a month in Sweden and toward the bottom of the stack was my shiny new Diamond Medallion credentials.
Having been Platinum off and on for a number of years I was really looking forward to seeing how much more impressive the Diamond kit would be. All I have to say is wow, Delta is getting cheap everywhere! I mean look at what I got:
2 – Metal Delta DM “cow bell” tags with steel cables
1 – Plastic Delta DM card
4 – JWD that is A job well done certs to give to DL employees
4 – HOOU that is amenity coupons
That is it kids. Nothing more. Now I did get my Skyclub card separately (so I guess that counts). But my word; I remember when the GM kit came with 4 HOOU’s and the PM came with 8. My JWD certs say they are worth 1000 points each and I have been told by FA’s this is much less than before. I wish Delta would give out 10 of these to us, but that is why I make my own anyway!
I am also bummed that the “bar code” is gone from the back of the plastic card. If you ever have an issue, say with your phone for your boarding pass, you can just scan you medallion card bar code and out will pop your seat slip. It works – try it (well it did when the bar code was there on your Skymiles card 🙁 ).
Many complain they have lost their GM or DM card but don’t despair. You can always request a replacement card from Delta anytime you want HERE (be sure you log-in 1st)! It will be a standard plastic Skymiles medallion card and it takes about a week or two to get to you – René
PS – I will be posting the grand prize medallion winner later today!
