Post FOUR SWUs for E threshold at 40k?

Searching through the posts, and checking the AP website, it states that Es get 2 SWUs for passing 20k and then 2 more for passing 40k, so imagine my surprise when I recieved FOUR today, even though I am just above 40k and had already recieved my 2 for 20k. The letter states: "You have now reached the next Air Canada Status Mile threshold and, in appreciation of your continued loyalty, I am pleased to enclose four Air Canada Top Tier System-Wide Upgrade Certificates".

Not that I'm complaining, but am I missing something here?

Sounds like an error to me -- but one I'd love to have!

Maybe the printing contractor is sticking it to AC/AP by going Electronic and taking away the business. Or maybe just clearing out house. In any case it's great if you can put them to use by end of Feb.

How long did it take from crossing 40K 'til the certs came? I have been waiting for approx 3 weeks for my 40K's but am not sure how things work this close to year end.

Ha ha @ angry print contractor. Sadly I don't think I'll be able to use the blue certs before Feb. based on current fares. But who knows, maybe now that I have so many I'll just have to try harder!

A little over a month since crossing 40k in my case!

Why couldn't they have stuck it to AC/AP on my 75k SSWU certs that came this week
