    This could be targeted, but worth a try:

    Get on your way to 2014 Gold or Platinum Medallion® status this summer. Register now, then just book and fly a Delta or Delta Connection® marketed and operated round-trip flight by July 10th:

    • Three times to earn Gold Medallion status through
      February 2015
    • Four times to earn Platinum Medallion status through
      February 2015

    The status is only good for a few months. And possibly a month to complete, traveling weekly. My favorite airline never ceases to amaze me.

    This offer makes no sense whatsoever, especially in light of the latest change to their SM program requiring qualifying miles flown in addition to qualifying dollars. Why would Delta do this? I really am stymied. Oh and I little bitter since I didn't qualify for the promotion either.

    IMO, it may give a false sense of 'status', which may be enough to bait those who qualified for the 'taste' of status, to try to earn it again like the rest of us do.

    A status match/challenge completed before mid-year typically only lasts through that elite year. I don't think the duration on this one is all that bad.

    As for status vis a vis the RDM earning changes, it turns out that a very significant group of DL customers see the two as separate such that they aren't too worried about it.

    Interesting....I've seen AA and UA do similar things. Wonder if they are trying to poach you from another airline? Or saw your status dropping off and are trying to lure you back?
