    I got mine last week. Nothing special, really. I think the biggest difference is that they included real straps for the bag tags this year.

    My wife got her Silver package a week or so ago. She's been a 1K since end of December thanks to my MM accomplishment. Guess they gave up on her reaching status on her own ;)

    I haven't received anything.

    If mine actually arrives via Correos de Costa Rica to my "direction," I may fall over dead of shock. :)

    One drawback of living here, for those who aren't familiar with it, is that most Costa Ricans have fought every attempt to actually put up street signs and assign real addresses. We give directions to everything here. That often includes something like, "500 meters past the old church, turn right, go 100 meters and turn left. Continue 50 meters past the ex-president's birth home, then turn right." Never mind that the old church was torn down 25 years ago, but every native knows where it was, or that the ex-president's birth home is now an overpriced high rise condo building.

    I love many things about this country, but I'm so ready to move to Colombia. C'mon June!

    Nothing. Requalified in June 2013.

    Given elite status is good through January 31, 2014, that united.com shows you to be a 1K means nothing. https://www.united.com/web/en-US/apps/account/memberCard.aspx will show that your status expires January 31, 2014.

    Qualified late October, got my packet last week. Glad they changed that straps for the luggage - I lost all the old tags pretty quickly with the old straps...

    No sight of my family's 3 Platinum and single 1K kits yet. My son's 1K was earned mid December so we aren't holding our breath yet.

    That's the move date, but I'll be spending time in Medellin prior to the move. I'll be there next weekend, then again for a few days in February. Nothing firm in the schedule after that, but it's going to take some time to get everything ready over there. Have to find a place to live, an office space and buy a car.

    You going to be in Medellin at all?

    No just Bogota for the weekend, just want to get the feel of the area, and then if I like it I may return. Am staying at the Marriott at the airport.
