New cards

Hi,
Have you received your new cards for the year? I was reconfirmed platinum but so far no new physical card, no in the app. Usually I always have them in early Jan. Based in Italy, BTW.

Thanks!

Physical cards often arrive end March. But you should have the digital one in the app.

...or your current physical card, which should be valid to 31/03 (assuming your membership year ends on 31/12, as appears to be the case), and which means they don't need to send out replacement cards as early as January. In my experience, replacement cards are sent out closer to the expiry date of the old card, and you would only receive a new card in January if you have gone up in status, and therefore immediately "need" a new card, rather than just maintaining the same level, whereby there are still 3 months' validity left on the existing card.

Despite maintaining Silver, I got a new Silver card within a few weeks of my account anniversary- which was in October (received in mail around mid Nov; along with another bag tag.)

Just another data point for your info: requalified for Platinum halfway May just before it would expire, but didn't receive my card until the end of July. The card in the app didn't update until September 1st with the new validity, but the XP counter did reset at June 1st.

I received my new card yesterday.

Just wondering if I have been short changed: I received the attached letter and 2 luggage tags. Just checking if others received any discount vouchers / upgrade vouchers for rental or status with Hertz or Avis?

I haven't received vouchers for Hertz or Avis, but I am only gold.
However, I can pair my Hertz account with FB, and then I become eligible for discounted rates. Perhaps this is the replacement for individual vouchers?

Haven't received my new card, but last week was surprised to get an email from Hertz congratulating me for re- qualifying for President's Circle, having taken 0 rentals with them last year (I signed up lat year and asked for status match with FB with the expectation of using them on a trip that got cancelled).

Well I received the opposite email from Hertz saying that I've been downgraded to Fiver Star because I did not make enough rentals last year (I also got a status upgrade last year because I emailed them saying I am FB plat)

Hmm, just realized that they downgraded me to Gold from 5* sometime before February. Damn! Could have gotten an upgrade in the US after all...
