Tier Qualification - Changing Color

Essentially there are three levels with increasing privileges as a member progress from Blue to Silver, and Silver to Gold. The sum of status miles or the number of qualifying sectors flown annually determines a membership status to a certain Tier. The more a member fly in one calendar year the easier it gets. A member is automatically entitled to a wide range of extra benefits and privileges as soon as sufficiently enough status miles are accrued in a member account.

ShebaMiles Blue, Silver and Gold membership

Travel between 1st January and 31st December

Blue 3,000 milesor 2 sectors
Silver25,000 miles or 20 sectors
Gold 50,000 milesor 40 sectors

Important Notes:

  • All miles earned do not qualify a member to a tier level. Miles that qualify a member to a Tier level are the ones called Status Miles. Each partner defines its Base Mile and Bonus Mile as Status Mile. Therefore, it is important for a member to plan which service to use so that miles accrue towards a tier level. 

The more you fly the easier it gets. Once you qualify for Silver or Gold Tier membership, you will be able to start enjoying the Tier benefits across Star Alliance member carriers within 2 - 4 weeks of your qualification.

Tier Evaluation

A member’s status is determined by the sum of Status Miles earned or the number of qualifying sectors flown during one calendar year. The current status of a member is a result of the number of status miles accrued or number of qualifying flights in the last calendar year. Membership status cannot be determined by adding up status mile of one or more calendar year.  
Sufficient Status Miles, or number of qualifying flights earned within the current calendar year, can advance a member tier to the next higher tier for the remainder of the month in the current year and the following year.
Members who have qualified for Blue tier should accumulate more status miles in the same year to qualify for Silver Status. These same Silver members should add more Status Miles on the Miles that has qualified them as Silver Member in order to progress to a Gold Membership Status. A member should accumulate status miles that are required to progress from Blue to Silver and Gold within one calendar year. 

Tier Validity

A member that has qualified for Blue Membership has an effective date that represents the qualification month and year and has no end date. 
Silver and Gold Membership have at least 12 months of validity when a member has qualified for the membership not involving Retroactive Mile Registration. Retroactive Mile Registration affects the qualification date, which may also affect the 12 month validity.

Tier Reset

ShebaMiles membership for Silver or Gold tier is evaluated annually on December 31. Members in Blue, Silver and Gold memberships are evaluated to check if sufficient/enough status miles have been accrued in the current year to determine tier membership for the next year.
Members that accrue sufficient/enough Status Miles each year maintain their status for the next year. Members that do not accrue sufficient/enough miles for the current year are reset to a tier that matches the status miles in their accounts.
