    DEAL IS DEAD
    BMI if offering free silver elite status if you open a new mileage account. Great deal since BMI is part of Star Alliance. http://www.flybmi.com/bmi/en-gb/loy...ions/exclusive-instant-silver-membership.aspx

    More details from Dan's Deals "You do not have to accumulate the flight miles on BMI in order the reap the benefits of Star Alliance Silver. On United for example you can provide one mileage number for mileage accrual and another for Star Alliance benefits. When flying Continental you can provide your BMI number when you make your reservation, when you check-in online, or at the airport to get the Star Alliance Silver benefits. After checking in your luggage you can change your mileage number at the kiosk or just ask any agent to change your mileage number to the airline on which you want to accrue miles. Just remember to do it before you board the flight! That way you can accumulate miles on any Star Alliance carrier. Accumulate on Continental for their all-around great mileage program, on ANA for their well-priced awards, on Air Canada for their amazing mini-round-the-world awards, or even on Aegean if you want easy access to top-tier Star Alliance Gold status (with 3 bags of 70 pounds each for you and each travel companion on many airlines and free access to nearly 1,000 lounges worldwide) when you accumulate just 19,000 elite miles!" http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/13155 DEAL IS DEAD

    So I have tried to sign up for this, and ever time I change my country to USA it navigates me to the BMI front page.

    Not sure If i am just doing something really wrong or what ...

    Hmm, I signed up and didn't have any problems. On the top banner where it says "other countries" I left it as UK. I just filled out the form below. Under "Contact Details" I choose United States of America and hopefully that should work.

    None. I don't believe any STAR programs grant lounge access for *S.

    It takes about a month to receive the card if you live in the U.S. and about 2 weeks if you live in the U.K.

    Doubt I'll need this, but might as well. Maybe I'll end up flying on *A at some point this year! Thanks!

    That's pretty nice, the BMI club isn't the best in LHR but not bad for free.

    Since I'm already star gold with UA and CO, no need for this for me, but it can come in handy for some of my friends andco-workers.

    Looking at the fine print, for Silver:

    Priority check-in* * bmi operating flights only, excludes bmibaby.

    Hmmm......just wondering if Priority check-in will work with other *Alliance members.
