Free Drink Coupons?

I'm a platinum transitioning to gold. But was curious. Do they still give the 4 free drink coupons every year?

Yes, I got 4 again this year. Never use them, I give them away to coworkers.

Do you still have 2018 coupons? If you do, you may to use the dots to scroll left to see the ones for 2019 (I had to do this for the ones in my wallet).

I have gotten 4 each year for the past few years. Haven't seen the new ones yet, but expect them to arrive before the current batch expires on 2/1/18.

I don't use mine either. I still have two from last year. The other two I gave to an unknown seatmate in December.

Yes.
They showed up in my DL App
Kinda miss the “old school” Tags, Drink Certificates & “JWD” that were snail-mailed a bazillion years ago.

I still haven't received any for 2018. Used my 2017 ones. My rollover didn't appear yet. Wonder if they happen at the same time?

I gave away my four 2/1/18 ones here last month in a different thread as I recall, and I had a new set of four expiring 1/31/19 already, but I don't recall if they appeared when I hit GM or PM.

I never did learn how to use my phone to use the coupons in my "wallet" so I asked the attendants in the SkyClub and they had no idea either. However they were nice and gave me a free coupon from their desk, My wife used it on her next flight and the FAs served the drink after seeing it and then handed it back to her. So my wife tried again to use the coupon on her next days flight and once again got her drink in coach and the coupon handed back to her. I didn't realize this was like a lifetime card but I'll report back if it doesn't work in the future

I've found that when I print my drink chits and hand them to the FAs, about 50% of the time they don't actually get scanned.
