As you can see, if you have NO status but live in Washington, Oregon or Alaska and join Skymiles and register you can very quickly jump up to Silver Medallion status with Delta. Then keep flying and it gets better.
After six trips you are GOLD but after eight you are GOLD and you have earned up to 30,000 Skymiles as well, worth at least $300 if you do Pay with Miles (must have a Delta AMEX card – any of the 3 personal or business).
Now I do agree that Silver is not the status level to be super excited about, but it is WAY better than NO status. Same goes for GOLD as it is a really nice elite level but not what it once was (or even Platinum for that matter). But still GOLD is nothing to ignore and this promotion makes it very simple to earn.
Lastly do keep in mind you will be fending off a BUNCH of Platinums & Diamonds from last year’s round of promotions for the same states! – René
