    Let's add that 2010 choice benefits were the first year of the program and for many of us were earned based on calendar year 2009 flights; for others they were earned during 2010 when obtaining an increase in status applying during 2010. If you've already selected a PM benefit or, for those who became DM during 2010, a PM and two DM benefits, you don't have to worry about this for a year.

    According to a conversation I had last night with a DL staffer, all the IT backlog for 2010 DM/PM benefits (for those who qualified during December) has been cleared so everybody should be able to choose today. Also, all the match requests that have been building up are also allegedly processed.

    Theoretically our exceptional SM service requests are now up to date.

    Thanks for posting this OP. I've already selected, but this is a good reminder for everyone.

    I avoided the rush, and selected my 2010 DM benefits yesterday afternoon. [​IMG]

    I'll let my 2011 choices sit while I ponder the possibilities. [​IMG]

    Just to clarify, David - for those of us that didn't quite "get" this the first time - this is for status earned 1/1/2009 through 12/31/2009.

    For 1/1/2010-12/31/2010, we have until 2/29/2012.

    I've also confirmed that there's a glitch in the system that won't allow you to gift someone FO or GM if they're already at that level... You have to wait until it expires. In my case, that's tomorrow.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    Yes, that's a dumb part of the system. I just gifted FO to my wife, with my 2011 choice benefit.
    I couldn't do it any earlier, because she was GM for 2010, dropping to zilch as of an hour ago... the system is working now and I was able to successfully make the gift.

    Now to see how long it is till it posts; perhaps they still do status sweeps on Saturdays?

    For earned status, it updates at most a day after your miles post now. No more waiting to Saturday. Not sure how that works with gifted status, however.

    OK, within an hour she rec'd a confirmation letter in malformed broken HTML, so we can't read it; but we did decipher enough to find a link to delta.com, to a page confirming the gift.
    It's not yet reflected in her status.
