They can’t keep us down for long!
The original offer page I posted over the weekend for instant free silver status with British Midland is now dead.
Matt in the comments to that thread offers up the direct link and promo code 1DC6SM which seems to still be working.
Bmi Silver is also Star Alliance silver which means free baggage.
- United has just reduced their free baggage allowance for Star ALliance silvers to only one on domestic flights (everyone gets a free bag internationally).
- Continental also offers just first bag free to Star Alliance silvers.
- Star Alliance silver members still get two free bags on US Airways.
When FatWallet and Slickdeals pick this up perhaps the good folks there will be good enough to link back to this post 🙂
Update: The ‘voucher code’ no longer seems to be pre-populating with the promo code 1DC6SM off the link above. You can try to sign up and then entering the promo code in the ‘voucher code’ box manually. That may or may not work, they may well have shut this down.
Update 2: Now it’s really dead..
Final Update: Now it’s really dead! Link gives you no status, but does apparently start you with 1000 points.
