    I think mine came late, others got theirs a month ago.

    contents:
    1 PM card​
    1 Hertz ad​
    1 Amex ad​
    1 autographed personal letter from J. W. Robertson, suitable for framing​
    2 luggage tags​
    3 job well done certs​
    4 drink chits​

    And a lovely little folder packet to preserve all of the above.

    Interesting -- my DM packet had 5 job well done certs. I guess maybe with our exalted Diamond-ness we'll have need to give out more certs..

    I got a GM packet, even though I qualified for PM. Then again....due to AMEX snafu, it was mid January before my 75k had posted correctly. Hopefully I get the PM one soon...

    GM packet is the same as the PM except for no Job well Done certs.

    GM's will get Job Well Done certs from DMs, when they carry the DMs on board their flights... :)

    Actually, this is a little disturbing. I know GM is the new FO but is the expectation that they will never receive service worthy of a Job Well Done cert? I realize there are a lot more GMs than PM and more PMs than DMs so it makes sense to reduce the number of certs given to each member but to zero?

    I had a similar situation, but those were above my 75k, so they were rollover's.
    Amex had some sort of glitch in their accounting, it took several phone calls and a week of back and forth e-mails until they finally found that the total year spend that I could see clearly on americanexpress.com was actually my total year spend.

    Some people think they were deliberately messing up to avoid giving MQM's; for everyone as persistent as me, how many never even noticed the missing points?

    Got my GM packet today (again). Oddly, I got a GM packet late last year also, just after I crossed the GM threshold in late Dec. The packet from Dec. had the ugly white tags/card with gold stripes. I prefer the new solid gold tags/card I got today. Also don't mind the fact that I doubled up on drink chits as a result of the extra credentials packet :D.

    I see Delta abandoned their efforts to win the coveted "Ugliest Elite Card" award for a second year. (Though Mr. Robertson's letter is definitely in the running for "Worst Marketing Copy on an Elite Qualification Letter.")

    Got mine Friday as well. I am not sure I like the new card ... can they make PLATINUM even bigger?

    Luggage cards are exactly like the membership cards, but name, member number and expiration date are omitted. They are the same size but with a slot for the strap.
    Probably saved a lot on production costs to just stamp them all with the same die.

    I made PM for the first time last September. Will they send me a new welcome packet, or was that covered by the first welcome packet I received last year?

    My PM card got stolen when I was pick-pocked at Wat Pho, so I could use another card in case the SkyPriority queues are being guarded.

    Your boarding pass should show your status, so that works as well as a card.

    True, I was more talking the baggage check-in line where one doesn't necessarily have their boarding pass yet.

    maybe carry an old BP and flash it at them too fast for them to read the details?

    I made DM last September and got a packet with a card ("Charter Member" no less) and tags. The card had a 2/2012 expiration so I figured it would have to last me.

    Last week I got a new pack with a new card (same expiration but the new design). So my guess is probably will get one eventually.

    IIRC, you can either print out a new (paper) card or request one online.

    Metal luggage tags....I love them. My DM package came just before I took off on a weekend trip.
    The new ID cards are much better than last years...much better.
    Did anyone notice the mistake in the benefits list, it says we get 50% MQM bonus on all flights.

    Did anyone else notice that the drink chits have changed? Instead of 'drink or headset' it's now 'drink or food item'. They are more like those "have one on us" OLCI coupons. I wonder if they'll be good for the snack boxes or just for individual items.

    On that other site, DL claimed it is not a mistake -- we can earn a 50% MQM bonus on every flight --- just buy a F/P/J/I/Y/B/M class ticket and boom -- there is our bonus.

    I just opened my PM packet..

    How underwhelming. The tags again are enormous, but at least are black instead of the hideous scheme they used last year. [​IMG]

    You're getting jaded. A few years ago you would have been thrilled.
