Soon, likely after the 1st of March, Delta will announce the 2016 Medallion year program. Will there be changes? Will there be improvements to the program (not likely) or will there be cuts to the program following the pattern Delta has shown in 2014 and before (very likely).
So here is where the timing for me and a real game of roulette comes into play (and I HATE gambling btw). You see, I picked my 2014 Medallion Choice Benefits at the end of 2013. This was a mistake. I lost out on a round of Regional and Global upgrade certificates as a choice. Delta would not budge on letting you CHANGE your choice (unless you were DELTA360 and then they DID let you change your mind I have been told).
Now here is my dilemma. Do I pick my 2016 Choice Benefits BEFORE things change, that is, under the current system of rewards. OR, do I wait and risk it and hope that Delta will actually improve the rewards like they did last year. OR, will they hack and slash and give us even less choices and I will have missed out by not picking NOW. Again, I know, #FirstWorldProblems are good to have!
Since you made it this far in the post, for the rest of you, who have NOT yet selected your 2014 Choice Benefits – you have until the last day of February this year to do so (next year, btw, it jumps to the last day of January so keep that in mind, but I will remind you then too). Also remember the things to AVOID picking this late in the game like gifting someone status from your 2014 gift as they will only have status for 43 days!
I would love to know what you think. Do you think Delta is going to improve the 2016 Medallion Choice Benefits program or cut? – René
