I'm torn. Would I prefer that the MileagePlus team spend its resources during the 2012 holiday season trying to figure out a way to make their 2013 program changes more palatable for customers? Or would I prefer that they give up and send an e-card?
Perhaps he has segmented customers into those they want to keep and those they want to fire, and you're in the former category.
Given my spend, I definitely don't think they want to fire me - but I'm probably on the bubble for GS renewal this year. New baby meant no travel in Q4, though no shortage of FF intl C in Q1-3. We'll see.
Either way, the card was a nice touch and gave me some hope that I might yet get renewed for 2013.

I like the DL card.
DL sees the holiday as an opportunity to do something like this. And all while creating a positive impression, their customers are spending 60 seconds watching a video plastered with DL logos all over the place -- from the uniforms to the baggage claim area, to the gate area, to the plane, to the baggage trucks, and ultimately the DL logo in lights at the end. Win-win.
Maybe we should do our own disgruntled UA FFers video card showing images of delayed flight boards, SHARES, long upgrade lists, long CS lines, and Jeff Smisek himself, all to the tune of You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.

Those FTers who say this is telling of United would be the first to post here noting "Jeff wasted all this on a silly greeting and he should use it for meals in F" - we already saw proof of this in the past - this does belong in the "least substant" thread
