    I received 2 mailers, 1 for my wife and 1 for myself welcoming us to the 2012 MileagePlus program. We are not new members. The mailer included 1 luggage tag each, a very nice gesture! Thank you United!

    Have you flown UA/CO recently or credited miles to your account?

    My wife received the kit, too. No recent travel posted to UA for her.

    A lot of folks are reporting receiving them. I'm only slightly bemused that this is happening while some elites never got their kits. Slightly.

    One of my luggage tags got ripped off on my last international trip -- called to buy a replacement, and they said they would send one for free!

    :D

    Were you using the straps they mailed the tags with? Those things are worthless.

    Yes. And now I know my mistake. Duct tape FTW (or some rope/paracord)

    worthless or not ..... rather to complain about everything Mileage Plus or the new UNITED did so far ....
    let's give them a chance and some more time ....

    and YES, I am still waiting for my new 2012 1K Million Miler card to arrive in the mail .... but I don't cry
    nor bitch about how horrible UNITED is .....after all you have a choice to fly any other carrier in this country

    I didn't get mine, while my better half did. Hopefully I'll get one soon too.

    :confused:

    The straps are not new this year and the same complaints were raised last year. I'm far from one who will complain about everything the company does but in this case the straps really are crap.

    My wife used hers once, on her carryon, by the time the plane landed it was nowhere to be seen.

    <singing> By the time I get to PHX I'll be tagless... </singing>

    I'd be mores than "slightly bemused" if I hadn't received my card some two months after I should have and need said card for *A lounge access as the printed duplicate card is not sufficient at some *A lounges

    Have not flown recently. Only new activity is I got my wife the new CC which she has for a week or 2 and I just applied for a new card for myself which hasn't shown up yet. Both packets with luggage tags arrived today.

    I wonder if any UA baggage handlers rip off the UA luggage tags as trophies... :eek:

    Extra points for 1K/GS?

    I used some much better straps, and the tag still ripped off my fiancee's bag. And yet my giant plastic Hipmunk tags with flimsy ties stay put. :rolleyes:

    I received my kit and it's been years since I've flown CO. Nice sentiment though.

    I received the card about 2 months ago. Luggage tags or the 2 club passes havent come in yet. Can I SM Chase about this or is there a UA number/email I should contact?

    Confirms the theory that the baggage handlers are ripping them off out of spite. ;)

    I have not flown Continental since 2001 and received the tag. Odd.
