I got one as well, but have mislaid it already.... Can anyone let me know whether this offer applies to flights taken on partner airlines as well?

No - just BMI flights.

So 1 MAN-IAD return in June costing ~200 would qualify for DC Silver?

(195 points x 2 x 2 = 780. 500 required for Silver, right?)

And 2 returns - for someone with no BD status currently - would leave you fairly close to Gold?

Seems like a bargain for *G, apart from the one small fly in the ointment being the 200 flights must be booked by today at the latest....

Do you need to register for this? I've taken four flights so far in April but have just been given the standard points.

I haven't received the mailshot either. Could it be targeted at blues & silvers only?

This is a targeted offer, only available to those account numbers which have been selected to receive the mailshot. Diamond Club say no other account numbers will qualify for the offer.

It is mostly blue card holders and some silvers, apparently.

I got the offer as a silver who's only 70 points away from Gold (doing a run to Toronto on an AC cheapie over Easter to make up the difference).

bugger. Have two LH C class flights this week. Already got 60 points from my one way EDI-LHR on Monday though Shouldn't be greedy I suppose.

Incidentally, I received the offer - and am a blue 200 points away from silver (or rather, was; I will be 80 points away by tomorrow). Wonder what the criteria were?

Dont be too disheartened, you get double destination points on your first overseas flight until the end of April under a current offer.

I am Gold about 200 or so from requalifying this year and didn't get it. Shame as I will not requalify for Gold without this.
