Current A+Rewards Elite benefits

Are membership cards/bag tags still being automatically sent to newly qualified Elites?

I have an associate who will soon qualify as Elite, and whom I told to expect the card and tags. Since it's been awhile since I went through this, I was not absolutely sure about the current scenario. If they will be sent, how long does it typically take?

The website does have a place to request membership cards.

They are supposed to be sent, but I haven't gotten them the last two years. My wife did get hers, although it takes a while. I don't think they are sending bag tags any longer.

I've gotten the packet the past three years - including drink tickets. So far, neither my husband nor I have received anything and since we're a day out from the new year, I'm guessing we won't. He did, however, receive a WN mailing with four drink tickets and was apparently downgraded to regular Rapid Rewards, despite taking 10 miserable trips on the flying bus in 2013.

The drink coupons are probably for the 10 flights on Southwest.

Each year when Southwest resets Rapid Rewards I have had to call Airtran and have it reinstated, even though I had re-qualified for Elite.

This year I am booking my flights through Southwest.com to get A-List, but will be taking as many Airtran flights as I can as long as they last.
