Earning Stories: Success with Alitalia MilleMiglia Status Match Offer

Welcome to the next post in the Earning Stories series right here on Rewards Canada. For years we have provided you with the details on earning points and miles (both regular earning and bonus opportunities) and these stories show the actual offers in action.

Unlike other earning stories, this one does not involve a flight, hotel stay or car rental. This one looks at an offer we posted here on FFB back at the beginning of July about Alitalia MilleMiglia having a open elite status match offer. Here is the offer as it appeared on our blog:





Here is the offer as pulled from our MilleMiglia page as it is still valid and if you haven't taken advantage of it yet you really should!

Receive an Elite Status Match to a non SkyTeam airline program. Full details
Getting a status match is very easy. Send an email to StatusMatchMilleMiglia@alitalia.com by December 31, 2015 with the following:
  • First name and last name
  • MilleMiglia code
  • A legible copy of your existing valid Frequent Flyer program card
Your status will be effective 5 working days after you send the request email and will be maintained until March 31, 2016. To confirm that your status has been recognized, you will receive a personalized email from your new Club.

I decided to give this an offer a shot and wanted to test it with a status I have that was expiring soon. I used my Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club Gold status that came with The Platinum Card from American Express. This benefit is actually no longer available from the card but my Gold status with Cathay Pacific is valid until the end of September. I simply scanned my Marco Polo Gold card and sent it off as instructed above with my name and MilleMiglia number. About three weeks later I received confirmation from Alitalia that my status match went through! I was now a MilleMiglia Freccia Alata Club member (essentially Gold status).

Here is the screen shot from the email confirming the status match:


I actually received my physical card in the mail a few weeks ago! Now I have elite status with Alitalia and SkyTeam until the end of March next year even though my status with Cathay ends in a month and a half! I would say this is a success story.  I don't think I'll fly Alitalia before the end of March to take advantage of all the benefits but there is a good chance I will be on some SkyTeam flights so it will be nice to take advantage of the SkyTeam benefits allotted with SkyTeam Elite Plus status:
Not only will I look at using these benefits, by having this status with Alitalia I may be able to extend it to other status match offers that are in or will be coming to the market since my Cathay status ends soon.

We'd love to hear how you have if you have taken advantage of this status match offer as well! Leave us a comment below or submit your own earning story to be featured here on Rewards Canada.


Have your earning story featured!
Not only are FFB Earning Stories featured in this series, we want to feature your stories as well! Have you earned a lot of points or miles by utilizing offers posted on FFB? We would love to hear about them and potentially feature them here on FFB Tell us your earning story by emailing us the details of what you earned, screenshots if possible of those points/miles posting and what offer on FFB you took advantage of. Email it to us info@frequentflyerbonuses.com

Hilton HHonors - 80% Bonus when buying HHonors Points until August 31 (5.6 cents per point)


Not as good as the spring offer of a 100% bonus but this could be worthwhile for some to extend the validity of their HHonors points or you have a redemption in mind that you want to redeem for soon and won't earn points from stays or can't wait for the next 100% bonus. Normally it costs $10 for every 1,000 points but with the bonus it brings it down to $5.56 per 1,000 or 5.6 cents per point. This is an offer where it can be totally worth it to buy the points for hotel stays as you can you pull out value of 8 cents or more on certain redemptions (check out Loyalty Travelers evaluation here!).
