Card Expiry Date

Hey,

I'am about to make Silver with FB but there is one thing which has left me questioning. Having looked for the relevant info it has left me nothing short of being puzzeled.

Is it correct that if I had made Silver or Gold say mid-December, March comes and I am downgraded technically making your elite-year four months?

Am I wrong or will you remain elite for almost two years if reaching the next level in April?

Any help much appreciated,

Regards,

Eric

When you qualify for an elite level you are qualifying for the next year.

The sooner you reach the status in the current year, the better it is for you.

So yes, if you reach any elite status today (or this year), it will remain valid through to the end of March 2008.

GVA,

Thanks - that is what I orginally thought. Would have been awful if it was not like that. The website is very unclear on this point and search did not reveal anything.

Anyone got a PE card with 03/2008 expiry date?

I just got my PE card (eventually) the other day and notice that it has a 2008 expiry.

Anyone else?

Just yesterday I received a new package from FB that obviously had a card in it. I was (briefly) excited, thinking that they had wised up and decided to bump me up to Plat again. Alas, it was another gold card along with a letter that said, "Here's your duplicate Gold card!". Of course I never requested any such thing.

Both the original and the duplicate expire 2007.

I got a second Plat card a few days ago... expiry in 03/2007 like my current one. Of course i haven't asked for anything. But i can compare both cards and they are not exactly the same:

- the new card is in french on the back, the older one was in english
- it was written "Kenya Airways" on the old one, it is not written anymore, just NWA Skyteam on the back side

i wonder if i can get at the same time 2 internet coupons in AMS lounge using the same FB account on 2 different yet identical Plat cards...

I noticed the Kenya Airways thing on the latest cards which arrived (from the rings of saturn) recently.

I did however find whilst looking at http://www.klm.com/travel/corporate_...m172-37601.pdf (page 47)

A picture, which shows that the Kenya Airways title may make its place to the front of the card right underneath flying blue and above your name.

Guess I've been lucky then with my card!

Wonder if it really will expire in 2008 though, if so then that will be almost 10 years (have to check) so wonder if they still do PE for life?

I presume that has to do with the fact that Kenya FB members are granted to the Simba lounge and non-Kenya members are not??

Could anyone confirm this?
