    Free Airberlin Silver status for 4 months

    Airberlin appears to be running a promotion currently where you can get 4 months of Silver Topbonus status for free. Yes, really.

    Silver status is equivalent to Qantas Silver, Velocity Silver and oneworld ruby status.

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a link in English. If you understand German and/or can translate the website, then you should be fine. But I thought I'd spell out the promo in English here to make things easier.

    How the promo works

    1. If you aren't already a member of the Airberlin Topbonus program, create an account for free: https://topbonus.airberlin.com/web/t...g?locale=en_DE
    2. Visit this page on the Airberlin website: https://topbonus.airberlin.com/web/tb/start_x2
    3. Login to your Topbonus account. Then, on the page linked above, click "Hier Silver Card testen"
    4. You should then see a green box confirming your registration for the promotion:

    5. Your account should be updated a few days later with your new Silver status (this does not happen immediately).

    What you get

    You'll receive Topbonus Silver status, and all the associated benefits, for at least 4 months. This time is calculated from the end of the first month that you registered for the promotion, and ends at the end of the 4th month after this. (So, if you register on 1 November you would receive status until the end of March 2017.)

    Extend the status with a status challenge


    You'll also have the opportunity to complete a status challenge to extend the silver status for another twelve months. You would need to earn 8,500 status miles or take 8 airberlin/Niki flights within this 4-month period to qualify.

    Additionally, you can earn Gold status by earning 17,000 status miles or taking 20 airberlin/Niki flights within the initial 4 months.

    Terms & conditions
    The main T&Cs, as per the airberlin website:
    • Promotion ends 30 November 2016
    • You technically are supposed to be a member of "Xing" to qualify for this promotion, although I registered without being a member and the consensus on the German-speaking forums I've read is that this is not actually checked.

    That would appear to be the case. Velocity silver as well, as Airberlin is in oneworld and partners with Virgin Australia.

    I have signed chicka up... perhaps if they send a membership card she can status match it across to Star Alliance Silver in any number of programs and eventually loop back around to something useful.

    Thanks Matt!

    In case anyone is interested, I just discovered that you can status match Airberlin Silver to Sixt Gold status. I probably won't bother myself as I rarely use rental cars, but I'll leave the link here in case it's useful for somebody: Sixt rent a car & Airberlin

    Interesting. Just signed myself up and will do the same with the wife, and will then see what happens.

    Thanks Mattg.
