Widely blogged about already, but I did want to mention it.  Delta and American Express Membership Rewards are running a promotion similar to the “Go Farther” deal late last year.  Transfer 50,000 MR points to your SkyMiles account and receive a 50 percent bonus.  As part of the deal you also get 25,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles.  That’ll make you instant Silver Medallion.  It’s especially worth considering if it pushes you past Silver into Gold or Gold to Platinum.  You can register for the promotion here.  Note that it’s for first time transfers only.

Furthermore, I participated in the Go Farther promo in November and have yet to receive the bonus miles and MQM’s.  Delta keeps telling me to wait until 6 weeks after the promo ended (December 15) so we’ll see what happens.  Delta, please send me my miles and MQM’s!
