4 million miler question

i just reached that level and got an email today

i'm surei'll be getting a new card, 4 evip's and probably some new luggage tags--but i was just curious about what was meant by "some other gifts we think you'll enjoy." -- did they recently add some additional goodies?


"Congratulations on reaching the next Million Miler level!

As the millions of miles add up, there are fewer members who earn this special designation. In just a few weeks you'll receive a new elite membership card that acknowledges your multi-Million Miler status - plus some other gifts we think you'll enjoy.

We are gratified by your dedication and confidence in us. Thanks for your commitment to American Airlines and the AAdvantage program.


Yours truly,


Kurt Stache
President
AAdvantage Marketing Programs"

does anyone know?
thanks

They actually used to have other gifts - but now it's the same 4 VIPs, two luggage tags and new status card with 4 million logo. Congratulations! You will now be Platinum for two consecutive life sentences...

It would be interesting to post if there is something "special" in the package, but if it is the same old stuff, we don't care.

When I crossed this mark I noticed that as I walked down the jet way, someone in front of me would vacum the carpet and the lead FA would sprinkle rose petals. . . . . .

the sarcastic posters on this thread (and there were many) were indeed correct

i apologize for wasting everyone's time

all i got (as predicted) were the evip's, a shiny new exp card and 2 luggage tags, despite the letter about "other gifts we think you'll enjoy."

perhaps the rose petals come at the 5 million mark?

How is that "despite"? The letter does not reference the luggage tags and the VIPs-- those are common knowledge here on FT, but not globally-- so those are your "other gifts."

It's not really that complicated.

Perhaps the FT mantra 'call again .. call again' will work in this case.

A note to the department that sent the original e-mail asking WHERE my additional gifts are?? Maybe that will get them to fix the bogus e-mail!
