    Just tried this, and it set me up as a basic level membership (Blue, not silver). Have contacted BMI to see if they will change it to Silver per the link, and will post the results.:(

    Did you click the 'join diamond club' red button on the right?
    If you clicked on the left side of the screen that does not work for the promotion.

    As far as I know you can claim miles on flights already booked but not yet taken. On the United Airlines site you should be able to manage your booking, change passenger details etc, and its on that page that you usually add your frequent flier number. Alternatively, there is a link on the bmi diamond club page when you are logged in that lets you claim missing miles. Definitley worth a shot. Enjoy Vegas!

    I just gave them a call and this offer was only valid to customers who received an email from them and wasn't for public consumption?

    I just got a blue membership :) Could this be fake if everyone is getting different results?


  • Registered Users Posts: 223 ✭✭ Markjsca1


    Blue here too...


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,511 ✭✭✭✭ FreudianSlippers


    Bump for anyone with an explanation as to different results?

    If you click on a button on the right side the correct code for this offer was used and you are silver.

    If you clicked on the menu item on the left to join (while the button the right was visible) you got 1000 miles instead of silver.

    If you click on the menu item on the left ot join now that the button on the right is gone (because this has offer has been taken away) you again get only 1000 miles.

    There was a work arround by entering the correct code into the field, however this is not longer valid.

    Think you may be getting confused, whilst the programme is called Diamond Club the levels on offer are only silver or blue?

    Be prepared to have your silver status downgraded to blue. Just got this today.

    Dear xxx

    We're pleased to see that you recently joined our Diamond Club frequent flyer programme. However, I'm writing to you because unfortunately the link you used to join was an exclusive by invitation only offer and as noted in our terms and conditions was non transferable.

    Regrettably, we will not be honouring the Silver status, and over the next few days your account will be downgraded to Blue status. Our decision is final, and we won't be entering into any further correspondence on this. On a positive note though, our frequent flyer programme is one of the most generous programmes around, and you only need to earn 16,000 membership status miles to earn a Silver membership. When you fly with us, or any of the Star Alliance airlines, you'll reach Silver status in no time at all. You'll also have access to all our offers and promotions, as well as being the first to hear about our great sale fares. We hope you'll still enjoy the benefits of your Diamond Club membership.

    Regards

    Keeley Downing
    Diamond Club Manager

    I just got this as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,765 ✭✭✭ robbie1876


    Yup, just got the same. It's a shame they won't stand over it, I can only presume that an absolute ton of people signed up once the link got around. I feel bitter though, cos I've booked flights with BMI and their partners US Airways for two trips in April, based purely on having Silver status on the program. In both cases, neither were the cheapest flying option available.

    Yep, here too.

    Will respond asking to be withdrawn from any BMI database and request written confirmation of such.

    @robbie1876, that's a major pain in the ass :mad:
