OK, where is "Have One On Us"?

As someone who flies CR2s every week I've received one of these every time I print out my boarding pass twice a week for many months now. Tonight I'm getting a lame "Introducing Sky Priority". Ummmm, I'm a Diamond with you guys Delta. I think I already know about that. I've tried it on two different computers, neither with ....... software. Anyone else getting them as of late afternoon 12/21?

It looks like the "Have one on Us" is either gone or going away.
On two recent multi-segment trips - I was able tp print out a "Have one on Us" voucher for mrs dd (Gold Medallion)- on every segment, but did not see any "Have one on Us" voucher for myself - even after changing computers.
The same thing has happened on a straight round trip too.

Is it supposed to come up every time? I only saw the drink coupon on flights where I did not get an upgrade.

Maybe they think you've been drinking too much and want to give your lover a break over the holidays??

Dear xxxx,

We are sorry but the "Have One On Us" coupon was supposed to be a random offering. It was simply a glitch that allowed you to receive one for each of your past trips. We have now fixed this glitch but you will be happy to know that we do not intend to take back the previous drinks you already had on us.

Love,
Delta

It is a lottery. I've never been so excited about OLCI!

Delta is turning into a flying casino:

BE upgrades are the jackpot and then we have domestic upgrades; preflight drink; snack basket/second drink service; HOOU coupons; working satellite channels/wi-fi; front-to-back/back-to-front meal selection; "your bag doesn't fit the overhead bin" at check-in; and if you check in luggage there is the final bag on the carousel grand lottery, I still remember the day mine came out first.
Who needs Vegas ?

I got one just now for my MSN-MSP-AMS connection on Dec. 19th. The MSN-MSP portion on the 19th was on a CRJ, but the coupon was dated to allow use only from Dec. 20th to 22nd (i.e., after the trip).

But I got an op-up MSP-AMS, and the pinot noir was the best I've ever had (I looked it up just now, and it retails at $42).

ALL IS FORGIVEN DL Please keep sending coupons I can't use, combined with op-ups!

Another illusory DL benefit.

A possible explanation... they may not give them for RJ flights that are so short that you don't get any service in coach?

Anyway, the last time mine did not print, I received multiple copies from a customer service agent at the airport.

I don't think that is true since once I could print such a coupon when my only Y flight was on a plane with just Y cabin, just 30 minutes from take-off to touchdown. My connecting flight was in F.

I was just searching for the most charitable explanation, based upon a few data points

Did you have a connecting flight that was upgraded?

I'm couponless today, too. In my case - yes, my first segment is upgraded and my second is a CR2.

But a few days ago, I was upgraded on my first segment and waitlisted for the second, and I got a coupon, so I figure it's more random odds than a correlation with whether there is at least one upgraded segment...

I was getting the coupons regularly, but they stopped about 6 - 8 weeks ago, now just destination highlights - ugh. I often fly rj's, so couldn't use them, but nice when I could - great snack boxes!

Why? Does this person get mean when they drink?

I am on the LGA-ATL this morning and did not get upgraded...and like the others I received no drink coupon...just the "introducing sky priority" thingy...I have no flight after this one.

Is Delta getting cheap on the free drink coupons or something?
