October 20 Update: Targeted Delta SkyMiles Medallion status match offer, Family Fry Guy in YYC codes as 5x points with the Cobalt Card & hotel occupancy rates continue to drop


Delta SkyMiles has brought out a new targeted
status match promotion that goes one step further than their ongoing
status match offer we have all become accustomed to. This new offer
requires registration by the end of this month and is one step further
in that SkyMiles will give one tier higher in their Medallion program
than the status you have with Alaska Airlines, American
Airlines, jetBlue, Southwest Airlines or United Airlines. That is,
silver gets gold, gold gets platinum (as a basic example). Now this
offer is targeted so you should keep an eye out from an email from
Delta SkyMiles telling you that you are eligible. If you didn’t get the
email you can give it a go via this link
but there are no guarantees it will work out. If you are successful in
your match you’ll get that one tier higher status until March 31, 2021
and can extend it by meeting a set number of qualifying flights ( If
you receive Gold Medallion® Status: Fly 2 Qualifying Round Trips or 4
One Ways; If you receive Platinum Medallion® Status: Fly 4
Qualifying Round Trips or 8 One Ways; If you receive Diamond
Medallion® Status: Fly 6 Qualifying Round Trips or 12 One Ways). If you don’t have status with one of the above airlines but do with Air Canada check out our post: A reminder that you can match your Air Canada Altitude Status to Delta SkyMiles Medallion Status

We added one more merchant to our American Express Cobalt Card Confirmed Multiplier Locations feature.
This one was my own purchase and it was from The Family Fry Guy which is a
food truck here in YYC. The transaction coded as a 5x multiplier on my
Cobalt Card. Let us know your success with this card with other food trucks from around Canada!  See the Confirmed Multiplier Locations feature here.
