Well, received package today. Not bad, 3 months late. First, glad they are metal. I dont think the finish will hold up long. They will go on my checked bags (which is almost never). I think I will keep my 2017 tags on my carry ons. Same color, raised logo, really good finish, just coming apart on one edge. I will "body work" it a bit and fuse it with epoxy. Qualified last year, but got no new tags. Qualified for Diamond next year last month. I hope whoever's in charge of these tags can get some helping hints from 2017 person in charge of same. I fly mostly intl. Tags DO help! Agents DO notice them. Attendants DO notice them. It's not for "Hey this guy is SOMEBODY!" acknowledgement. Its them realizing that I live out of my carry ons. I usually have snug, but proven doable connections. I usually have several (5-6+) flights in a row...flew 10,000 miles yesterday, 5 flights, 12 time zones...and if I miss a flight or lose my bags the consequences are a MAJOR problem! Gate check doesn't work out. Even when I have to fly non Skyteam(rarely), other airlines with different requirements notice the tags and have let me slide. Thank you Delta for the metal tags for these reasons above. Have only seen a few of the red MM tags. They're noticeable, but would still rather have those funds allocated to better DM tags and MMs put back on, with SM # on back...just in case. Just my thoughts...

So what's the point of these packets without membership cards? I tossed the (somehow even cheaper looking) tags.

Assume you're joking, but the United States Postal Service has a free service called "Informed Delivery". I get an email each day with scanned images of the mail that will be delivered that day.

Or about half the time a generic graphic with the message we don't have a scan of the item.

Lengthy time (6+ mo) to ship Medallion welcome kit / bag tag?

Realize it's a little thing / first-world problem - but after flying enough to make DL PM in 2018, I requested a welcome kit / bag tag. Multiple times now it's been 'delayed' per the Twitter team - at first to mid-Feb; checked in mid-Feb and was told via Twitter DM it would be mid-April; checked again today (as I have *still* not received) and was told mid-late June. Seems kinda crazy that the 'beginning of year' kit would be mailed out halfway through the year

Has anyone else experienced delays of a sizable proportion like this?

Dont throw them away, people pay a lot of money for them on eBay (for some reason?)
