    I just received the following in my email:

    Thank you for being a Silver Medallion® member and for your loyalty to us. We would like to offer you the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive reward.

    Fly six qualifying Delta segments* anytime between April 1 and June 30, 2011, and you'll receive double flown miles. (That's just three nonstop round-trip flights.)
    • Then fly and enjoy a 75% mileage bonus on all Delta marketed/operated flights flown July 1 through December 31, 2011. As a Silver Medallion, you already earn a 25% mileage bonus. Add that to the 75% mileage bonus and you'll be earning a total bonus of 100%. That's double flown miles on all paid Delta flights for six months.
    Best of all, as of January 1, 2011, we eliminated mileage expiration so you can redeem miles on your timeline, not ours. And, as a Silver Medallion member with Delta, you already enjoy:
    • A dedicated Medallion phone line.
    • Waived baggage fees.
    • Unlimited Rollover Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs).
    • Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades for paid tickets.
    • Access to Preferred Seats.
    • SkyTeam® Elite status in our global network.

    With this exclusive offer to earn double flown miles, we hope you make Delta your airline of choice now and in the future.

    What's great is I'll soon hit gold so I'll rack up even more bonus miles :)

    It's labeled an exclusive offer so this may or may not work for you... You can try the following link and enter your skymiles #: http://dmn.delta.com/offers/thankyou/

    Looks like they're sending targetted offers based on your current status. I don't have any medallion status and just received the following offer:

    Hello ckwill,

    Thank you for being a SkyMiles member and for your loyalty to us. We would like to offer you the opportunity to enjoy an exclusive reward.

    Start enjoying Silver Medallion® status now through February 2012 by flying six qualifying Delta or Delta Connection® segments* anytime between April 1 and June 30, 2011. (That's just three nonstop round-trip flights.)

    Or, enjoy Gold Medallion status now through February 2012 by flying twelve qualifying Delta or Delta Connection segments* anytime between April 1 and June 30, 2011.

    With this exclusive offer to earn Silver or Gold Medallion status faster, we hope you make Delta your airline of choice now and in the future.

    The Gold one is pretty nice:

    We would like to say thank you for being a Gold Medallion® member and for your loyalty to us.
    • Earn Gold Medallion status with us again for 2012 and we'll give you 25,000 bonus miles.
    • Or, earn Platinum Medallion status for 2012 and get 50,000 bonus miles.
    • Or, earn Diamond Medallion status for 2012 and get 100,000 bonus miles.
    For this one-time bonus, qualify for any one of the above Medallion levels by flying the required number of Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) by December 31, 2011. Any MQMs earned above your Medallion qualification level at the end of the year will automatically roll over to your MQM balance for status qualification the following year. That's a benefit no other airline can offer.

    Best of all, as of January 1, 2011, we eliminated mileage expiration so you can redeem miles on your timeline, not ours. And, as a Gold Medallion member with Delta, you already enjoy:
    • Waived baggage fees and direct ticketing charges.
    • Unlimited Rollover Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs).
    • Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades for all tickets, including Award Tickets and Pay with Miles tickets.
    • Delta Sky Priority™ experience.
    • SkyTeam® Elite Plus status in our global network.
    With this exclusive offer to earn up to 100,000 bonus miles, we hope you make Delta your airline of choice now and in the future.

    It's interesting that the Silver offer stresses three nonstop RTs, whereas many of us would think of six segments as one properly planned RT, which would be much cheaper. It's also interesting that it's phrased as an additional 75% bonus, so that once Gold is achieved, the earning bonus becomes 175%, which is amazing for deeply discounted fares.

    I got a rock.

    (Always wanted to write that, but I usually get the targeted promos on account of DL wanting to "win" my market.)

    Edit, March 25: I was able to register for this today, so I guess I'll have to give my rock back. :(

    This would be really great. So far, I've got nothing, but I can always hope. I could earn Silver by the end of April..

    I'm sort of scared to say this, and I hope Delta doesn't try to take it away from me.... I got the gold offer, even though I was silver in 2010, I just became gold this year (thanks to 23k rollover, 25k amex and 10k CPH run) so I got the email offering me a bonus for achieving what I already had achieved.

    Did the bonus post to your account yet? Is there fine print in the T & C requiring registration, or registration before purchase and travel?

    Bonus has not posted, TandC says bonus will post in 2012, it did require me to register, and I did successfully. It only talks about final medallion level, but I wouldn't be shocked if it posted earlier.

    Nice - I wish I had a faster track to gold, but guess I'm close anyway... Hence the different targeted offers ;)

    I agree - with my short route to Gold at this point, I'll be wracking up bonus miles at 175% for 2/3 of the year... I will travel most weeks, so will add up quite significantly.

    Nothing here either. Guess bribes are not needed for Platinums. We already get 100% mileage bonus. Still it would be nice to feel loved.

    FWIW, I just spoke with a Medallion rep on the phone who told me that the flights do not have to be non-stop. I have a trip to Key West planned in about 10 days and fly through ATL in both directions. When I directly asked whether that trip would count as "4 qualifying segments", I was told that it would.

    I am a FO with Delta and wasn't targeted for any of their offers. However, I received a post mail from Delta last week with the offer similar to the one for silvers - fly 6 segments until June 30, and then enjoy 75% bonus mileage from July 1 - December 31. Plus, get a 2 confirmed domestic upgrades at the time of booking. I am not sure how about the last part. Can I select which flights from the itinerary I would like to get an upgrade or what? Offer is available on delta.com/twogifts
