    Registration is at delta.com/thankyou. It's 75% bonus of redeemable miles (not MQM), so for Silver that already gets 25%, this adds up to a 'double'. I've been a long time plat with NW then DL but downgraded to a mere Silver in March. So I look at it as a re-engagement offer.

    To actually get the bonus, one has to fly 6 segments between registration and end of June. The fine print of the letter indicate that a 'direct' flight with a stop in between only counts at 1 segment.

    It's obviously targeted as I tried it with all the family members and not all of them were allowed to register. But the ones that were allowed didn't all receive the letter. So I'll say give it a try - you don't have anything to lose.

    We are sorry, the SkyMiles number entered is not eligible for this promotion. :(

    Oddly enough, right after I posted that last message, I went out to the mailbox and I had a letter from Delta about this promotion.

    Odd that DL is still sending stuff out via snail mail. This must be expensive if they do it much.

    Just checking to see how this is going for those that qualified. I had a trans-pac trip starting on July 1, so the extra 75% bonus sure was nice.

    I'm curious if anyone has seen what happens to the bonus when you cross over to GM. I technically crossed the 50K MQM barrier before the last segment of my itinerary, but I only saw the 100% bonus (25% for FO + 75% for the promo). Curious if this was a timing thing or if I can't get the bonus after becoming GM.

    FWIW, my Skymiles account showed as Gold before the miles from the last segment posted (but the other segments had posted).
