Buy Miles to Keep Status

Jump to last reply

I'm approximately 2000 miles away from keeping silver elite status on Delta for next year. I'm really questioning whether its worth it to pay $295 to buy 2500 miles to keep my status for next year. Flying somewhere this week is not an option so I would have to pay up. Additionally, I'm no longer traveling very much, and the clincher, I'm pregnant so I anticipate definitely having a few months where I am not traveling at all. Furthermore, I have no trips planned to go anywhere for the next few months while I can still travel. (FYI, I have to change this!)

And really, what does silver elite get me? I was upgraded once to first class during the past year, and I can check my luggage 12 times paying the fee to equal the $295 I would pay to reach elite status. A better seat? A chance to board early?
