    My wife and 5-year old daughter just got their "Welcome to 2011 Elite Status" booklets which contained the usual 4 Continental Currency drink chits. (I'll try to ensure my daughter doesn't use more than 1/flight, I promise!). I was shocked to see the expiration date of 1/31/2012.

    I appreciate the offer, but sure would appreciate a little more time to use them. Living in Budapest, I've got to book an international flight in the next 2 weeks to use them on CO or UA. I think the benefit might be a little diluted in that case.

    Guess I'll email the OPSC? Other suggestions?

    You'll get another Welcome Booklet in a couple months for the 2012 year -- I wouldn't bother OPSC with it.

    And are you really going to book a flight just to use drink chits?

    Received my "Welcome to Elite Status" booklet and there is no drink chits at all. So at least OP wife got something ;)
