    Received on the last possible day (January 31) before the expiration of my 2015 card. With the card showing in the app, this may not be the issue for some of us that it was in prior years.
    As a Million-Miler I was able to name a companion. This year her card was sent with my packet which saved them 5 drink coupons and 1 luggage tag.

    No sign of mine either. But the +1 received her mm companion credentials last week!
    Update. the United app shows my 2016 status.

    The mystatus.united page still shows "pending"....(for my credentials to be shipped).

    But, i already received the stuff in the mail.

    Why bother having websites which are difficult to keep updated?

    I got my packet, companion card was included. I checked very carefully, and no drink coupons.

    Do you think the mailman is having a party at my expense on his vacation flight?

    If you are 1K, the new perk may make the chits a thing of the past. If you are Gold, you do not get any. If you are Platinum, you should have gotten 5. Mine were hiding in the small pocket on an insert.

    I'm still 1K (don't ask why) and just got the packet.

    The card isn't of any use except when flying partner airlines,
    whose personnel sometimes require the physical credential
    in addition to what's printed on the boarding pass (why?);
    there were drink chits, though; I suggest that if you didn't
    get them, you should squawk about it.

    no packet for this 1k yet, it says 4-6 weeks or something like that. Blah. Is it really that hard for United to send the packet out sooner? I made 1k back in June or July.

    generally i guess i don't use the card, even @ LH Senator lounge, I know some folks get issues apparently, i've never had a issue as long as the BP says UA*G on it.
