    Hi All,

    I am thinking of switching from AA to DL and have a friend who would be able to gift me GM. My question is, when would the status last to if I was gifted that now as opposed to after the first of the year?

    You're welcome. Just curious as to why you're thinking of making the switch?

    It doesn't depend on when the status is gifted but rather on which program year is the source of the GM gift. Your friend should look carefully at his/her choice benefits selection page on the website. The dates should be specified there.

    Not according to Delta.....Read the Terms and Conditions.
    Gifting Silver or Gold Medallion Status to a Companion: Gifted complimentary Medallion status will be effective within 2 weeks and membership credentials should arrive within 3 weeks. For selections made for 2013 Choice Benefits, companion status is good through February 28, 2014; for selections made for 2014 Choice Benefits, companion status is good through February 28, 2015.

    This is consistent with what I said: 2013 choice benefits mean that PM/DM was earned during 2012 and 2014 choice benefits mean that the status was earned during 2013. It doesn't depend on when the status is gifted provided that the gift is made before the expiration of the choice benefits. This is very different from your assertion above in post #2.
