2018 welcome packets?

Just wondering when (or if) welcome packets will be sent out for Platinum/Diamond medallion members in 2018? Just curious since the 2017 cards expire in a few days.

Thanks.

Yeah nothing here yet as a DM. What's funny is i actually needed a few drink coupons and I didn't have any in my app wallet for 2018. I thought I got them by this time last year.

I actually have a somewhat related question;
if I receive my diamond welcome packet say, this month and I cross the MM threshold a couple weeks later, will they send me new tags?

IME, yes you will receive new tags with the MM level printed on them.

They did that for me when I requalified for DM in about November and then hit 2MM in December of the same year.

Been DM for 5 years now and have never received new tags at the time of requalifying (including this year). The only time I got new tags mid-year was when I hit MM status.

NO, I don't mean getting a new kit when requalifying. That year, my first kit was sent out as usual in the first batch of new DM kits and received in January. About six weeks later, I received the second kit with additional job well done certs and drink coupons IIRC, plus a card and b(r)ag tags that said 2MM rather than 1MM. (Both were DM kits with DM level card and tags.)

Yes. Jan last year I hit MM. Around a month later I got my regular Diamond tag package for renewing, and a few weeks after that got a second package with 1MM tags

I am a PM for 2018 and I have never received any welcome kit. I was a GM 3 years straight and I never received any lit then either.

I've been a DM since the beginning, and have always received my annual packet in February each year. This year.......I'm still waiting! Slightly off-topic I know, as the thread title refers to the "2018 welcome packets"! Just venting!

I had never received my 2018 packet, even after requesting it be re-sent (and allowing 6 - 8 weeks for processing). Well, all it took was making 1MM! Packet arrived today, along with a separate hand-addressed and hand-signed card congratulating me on my 13(!) years with SkyMiles. The first few of those were mostly spent with jetBlue

I just want more JWDs. Gave my last one out a few days ago, and that was one I was holding onto. It was beginning to get pretty torn up in my pack.

Requalified in March/April for 2019 DM.

As-of today, I have yet to receive a packet.

I donít really care, aside from the fact that Iím out of JWDs and, therefore, wasnít able to burn one on what was easily one of the top 2-3 DL crews Iíve ever experienced on last weekís SYD>LAX flight ó which is a real shame (although I did mention them by name to @Delta).
