I will be over 35K by this week. We will see what happens but I am not holding my breath. Good for you guys. Hopefully the same will happen for me.

I qualified around October 15-17th and received my package yesterday (Nov 7) so around 3 weeks (not great but about what I expected).

Now I'm wondering if my landlord stole my package!!! I qualified on Oct 4th/5th, and my package was mailed on Oct 16th, and still haven't seen anything (aside from two threshold SWUs last week)...

Mine took a while too. I called but apparently something comes from US, blah, blah....but eventually got it fine.

To make matters worse, I have no scheduled flights before next March, meaning I may have to waste the SSWUs!

Is there any way for me to call AC or AP to get the SSWU cert serial numbers that are coming to me so that I could upgrade online? Or, am I SOL?

I have printed my online AP statement to show that I am E in order to get lounge access (as I've read here on FT). Hopefully this will work...? Thanks in advance!
Wont happen.

I was in South America while certs were mailed home. No chance for me to get upgrade on leg back home. I contacted via phone/email etc. No chance as coupon must be in-hand.

I could get in RCC before I got my card last January. The agent was able to see on her computer that I had Gold status on Star Alliance.

OK, I know there will be those that said "I told you so" but I'm really ticked right now at myself and at Air Canada. I purposely had my AP number removed on 2 trips which accounted for 9 segments in order not to cross the 75K threshold in early November (to delay getting new SSWU certs that expire in 09 instead of 08). Somehow AC managed to post my points for 1 of those segments (2078 miles) so I did cross the 75K threshold on Nov 2. Now I am sitting at 90 segments, which would have been 98 segments with the flights that I delayed posting on. I've got 4 segments coming up this week, which will bring me to 94, so still short of the magic 95. When I delayed posting my flights, I thought I needed 100 segments for SE hence no disadvantage in not getting my flights credited right away. Now it looks like I may not get my SE until next year because of my antics, plus I didn't delay crossing the 75K threshold at all!

Yeah, yeah, yeah .... I told you so ....

I crossed Nov 11th and got the email. I picked my benefits. Now we will see if the package comes in 3-4 weeks like described! How long after you pick your benefits does it say when it is mailed out? I picked mine Sunday and it is still blank in the area saying when mailed out.

Finally!

Qualified for Elite on October 4th, chose my options on the 5th, package was mailed on October 16th, arrived today November 15th.

That took a while.
