Tomorrow Is Last Day to Select Medallion Choice Benefits for 2012

In case anyone out there besides me has not yet redeemed, remember tomorrow is the last day to select your 2012 Choice Benefit.

Do it NOW in case delta.dumb goes down or you experience trouble doing this, which must be done on the website.

Tomorrow Is Last Day to Select Medallion Choice Benefits for 2012

BigFlyer - can you help clarify something for me. If I earned DM status in December 2012, must I elect Choice Benefits by tomorrow? Or do I have until Feb 28, 2014?

I believe until 2014, but here is a direct quote from the Delta website and you can interpret it as you will:

Eligibility for Choice Benefits is based upon a status change to Platinum or Diamond Medallion within a given status year. Members who qualify for 2014 status in 2013 will only be eligible for 2014 Choice Benefits. Choice Benefits selections for 2013 status need to be made by February 28, 2014; selections for 2014 status need to be made by February 28, 2015.

If it says 2012 on the choice benefit page, you need to trade them in by tomorrow night. You should also have PM 2013 and DM 2013 choice benefits.

My understanding is that the ability to select expires at the same time as the gifted status would, so checking that is key. It's very confusing with year earned versus FF program year.

What link are you using?
Is it the personalized link from your emails, or a generic one? If the latter, please share.
