Maybe you might want to check to notice that three or four other threads on this subject exists and the question is asked every day, so why another one just for yourself? If you made your selections just before Christmas, consider the logistics: maybe one-third of all elites (totalling 200K+) will have made their selection at that time. Christmas holidays started and most businesses have been shut down for almost half the days of the past week. The post office is still clearing Christmas backlog and will only be back to normal this week. So give AC's processor a break and realize it will take a couple of weeks to clear this backlog and get it into the postal system, then start on the batch that will get their notices later this week or early next.

Normally when one crosses an instant elite threshold it takes a week to get the invite to select and a week to process the package, and depending upon where you live in the country between three and seven days to arrive in the mail. Since the cards and certs are technically for the benefit year that starts on March 1st, AC still have almost two months to get the stuff to you.

Since you are using a UK mailing address, expect an additional week or two to get there. But at this time of year you are not going to get the same turnaround as for instant elite qualification so dcotton's experience cannot be used as a measure of what to expect. In past years its been between three and four weeks from making the selections, so in your case it may not be until late January. So I know you're in Africa and it may be harder than back here where the weather is -10C, but chill out man!
