    Hello everyone!
    I just became silver medallion in March and my card says it's valid until 02/14.
    I am short of 10k for gold medallion, If I make it before december will my gold status extend beyond my silver or how that works?

    If you make Gold, it's good until the same date... or you can carry the MQMs -- the bad news you can carry extra segments.

    Congrats on Silver! I am working towards that by end of year myself. I do not know for sure but my guess is if you hit gold for next year you will be gold until 2/14. I do not believe them to be additive, though wouldn't that be nice!

    yes, confirmed with delta, it doesn't add up... the expiration date is still 02-14.
    I want to be able to make it to gold this year due to the perks and the bonus miles are 100% for gold instead of 25% for silver...

    However, if you plan to fly a lot early next year please note, as DTWBOB implied, that Delta "rolls over" mileage balances in excess of your current level. So if you end 2012 with, say, 45,000 miles, the amount over the 25,000 needed for silver will roll into next year. This means you start 2013 with 20,000 MQMs so you will be practically at silver already. If you then make gold in early 2013 it will last until Feb 2015.

    Welcome to MP, Mr.worldwide!

    The Delta SkyMiles thread should be useful to you - LINK.

    As far as MQM promotions, there is currently an offer for 250 MQM with Hertz and one with Hilton. Also, recent discussion on this topic - LINK.

    I guess I will save it for next year to start with 20k and work towards gold...
    Silver is pretty much worthless...
