FREE BMI SILVER STATUS
BMI if offering free silver elite status if you open a new mileage account. Great deal since BMI is part of Star Alliance.
More details from Dan’s Deals “You do not have to accumulate the flight miles on BMI in order the reap the benefits of Star Alliance Silver. On United for example you can provide one mileage number for mileage accrual and another for Star Alliance benefits. When flying Continental you can provide your BMI number when you make your reservation, when you check-in online, or at the airport to get the Star Alliance Silver benefits. After checking in your luggage you can change your mileage number at the kiosk or just ask any agent to change your mileage number to the airline on which you want to accrue miles. Just remember to do it before you board the flight! That way you can accumulate miles on any Star Alliance carrier. Accumulate on Continental for their all-around great mileage program, on ANA for their well-priced awards, on Air Canada for their amazing mini-round-the-world awards, or even on Aegean if you want easy access to top-tier Star Alliance Gold status (with 3 bags of 70 pounds each for you and each travel companion on many airlines and free access to nearly 1,000 lounges worldwide) when you accumulate just 19,000 elite miles!”http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/13155
