You don't expect to become a Gold member based on the fee you payed many years ago in order to join the Matmid club, do you?
There are 2 ways to become Gold member:
1. fly 2000 points within a year (1800 in order to re qualify)
2. status match.

If a Gold membership would cost 40$ the how much would Silver be? 10$?

considering what Silver gets you, I think $10 is a bit much...

Do you mean to say that you are prepared to be downgraded from platinum to silver for the stingy amount of $10?!

If so I'm prepared to buy it off you!

I didn't say that I will accept the payment, I only wonderhow much they would pay me in order for me to become a Silver.

And BTW, I'm now a Gold member.

Buy a Lexus get a PL status,
Invest 10m$ in CitiBank get a TPL status...

If i wouldnt be a tpl, and had 10m$, i would do probably something else with them!
