Mine arrived today. Both the same color.

If you're not currently a DM, you should get a welcome packet as soon as you qualify.

Got mine as well earlier this week. I have mentioned this idea before, but will do so again: I think it would be really helpful to put the year of the status on them. For example, mine would say "Diamond Medallion 2019". This would solve the problem of 1) boot leg old tags being sold and 2) making the tags somewhat useful by indicating that you are currently a DM or PM or whatever and not someone who hasn't earned that status currently. Oh, and would love it if they put my 1MM back on it. The red tag is a touch too much for me.

I somewhat agree with you. The year and maybe your SM# in case bag it's lost. This cards have no porpuse at all but only advertise for DL. I think that people that really know what they have don't need a "tag" in the bag. What if DL was to do away with this tags altogether? There would be a revolt LOL.. I belive next year DL will bring back the tags for all Medallion levels. I keep my PM tag that I originally got 4 yrs ago in my back pack and keep the DM tags on my wife luggage, she has no status.

No.... it also advertise to your coworkers that you spent a lot of company money... and it also advertise to your dates that you have no life...

The day I left for a 2 week holiday, informed delivery showed my packer was being delivered. We will see as my MM packet showed the same thing a month and it never arrived. Maybe someone in my local post office has some fake tags on their bags.

I would guess that the budget for these didn't go up from last year, so if people want "metal" (if you can call it that) instead of plastic, some other corners will have to be cut.

If the brag tags were still personalized, you could look for yours on eBay.

DL has already been cutting corners and profits are high. I suspect that further cost cutting wouldn't result in any goodies being given back to us.

Received mine today and no million mile status on them. I wonder why Delta wasted all that money sending on those tacky million mile tags a few years ago instead of just putting the status on the brag tags
