2017 AAdvantage Kit - Received one yet?

Has anyone received their 2017 program year EP kits yet? My current card expired 2/28/17. Got a trip to Asia coming up and I hate showing up to the lounge with just Emerald on the BP. I guess I'm still paranoid from the US *A days and having to slay the LH Sen. lounge dragons in FRA...

P.S.: usual FT boilerplate language disclosure regarding the good faith but fruitless search for an existing thread etc

But in all seriousness, couldn't find an existing thread so started this one.

When I requalified for EXP (back in August 2016) a few weeks later I got my new card with an expiration date of 1/31/2018, should I expect another mailing?

I qualified end of December and haven't gotten one yet. I've reached out via Twitter and they said give it until end of Feb (last month). Didn't come. I called AAdvantage Customer Service and they said they'd send the whole pack (maybe 10 days ago), still hasn't come. Addresses on profile are all good. Not sure what's up.

I requalified June 2016, and haven't received anything yet. It might be that I live overseas.

Interesting, my experience has always been that they get sent out en masse in Feb or March. But that may have just been with US however I feel like my last two AA cards have been sent around that time as well.

Don't recall when I got it but I just checked and the card I have in my wallet says 3/18 expiration so I guess I did already get mine.

I requalified for EXP last year in November (I think), and I got the kit in December with exp. date of 02/27/2018 (same design with the EXP card exp. in 02/27/2017). However, interesting thing was...I thought I lost the card with the 2018 exp so I called to requested a replacement card, took about 3 weeks to arrive. When I opened the card, the exp. date is the same (02/27/2018) however the card design is definitely different (nicer looking imo). Just a case point, so 3 weeks for the card to arrived at my house.

I live overseas as well (the cards/kits are sent from the UK for European members).
This is hit-and-miss. Here's my last few years:
2011 - qualified Dec.30, got the package in Feb 2012 (qualified for Plat in November, that card came in March....)
2012 - qualified in November, never got a kit
2013 - qualified in April, kit came around October
2014 - qualified in November, got an email in April '15 that the package was returned (I moved, my bad) and asked for updated shipping address. Never received the reship.
2015: qualified in April, no kit
2016: qualified in October, kit came in early December

Really? AFAIK the new expiration for all status (except perhaps CK) is the end of January - that is 1/31/xx (beginning 2018) rather than the end of February. So I'm fascinated you are seeing a (1) March and (2) Feb (and not even the last day) expiration for 2018...?

whoops not sure how I mis-read that, guess I just looked quickly at it and saw the 3 and 18 upon checking again you're right its 1/31/18

Yeah - different from my 1/31/2018 tags - and yes, I think these look cooler than what I have. Pity I'll probably not get the 2019 EXP tags.....
