Why do you ask?

I used a choice benefit for a SkyClub membership a few months ago so might as well wait as long as possible to get the 747 card because I already have the primary benefit.

This is exactly what I got..another purple replacement card.... after i had a 15 minute conversation with the agent and them confirming that I would get the 747 edition. Super disappointed.

Did the card icon change on your online account? It should go from purple to the 747 version.

Requesting a replacement card online allows you to choose the 747 special edition card. No agent involved who could make a mistake.

Received mine - it looks fine - the monochromatic nature of the color scheme makes the card look a bit flat, for lack of a better word. I think the purple card looks better. I will keep this for a bit then likely request the purple back.

It doesn't say Reserve card on the front. I'm imagining some clueless DL agent or SC dragon not believing that it's a Reserve card and denying benefits.

Same. Plus, I can't even remember the last time I had to physically produce my card to enter, since it's linked to my account.

I have seen on various occasions a laminated sheet with pictures of all the different AMEX cards that get you into the club, and the fee where required, so presumably they will update that with the new card image.

Speaking of which, I noticed in the app that the card holder name on the card representation is IVY LEE and not the usual C F FROST.

I am guessing this is not a reference to the Singaporean actress...: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivy_Lee_(actress)

... but rather the American businessman/entrepreneur? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivy_Lee

Google tells me he lent his name to a method for maintaining productivity, although Wikipedia also says "Lee is best known for his public relations work with the Rockefeller Family and the Nazi Regime."

Although I also turned up an MR points catalog targeted at Malaysia that has the same name on the card image on the first page so maybe it is the actress: https://www.americanexpress.com/cont...ue-Jan2022.pdf

having said that everyone, remember to update your card info in the Delta app. I could see that being an issue.

Why? Reserve cardmembership is tied to Delta systems via Skymiles account number. Whether you use the Reserve card as a form of payment makes no difference.

My goal in life is to keep my wallet LESS heavy, not more. Old Black reserve card is nice and light. Wish my platinum card could be plastic too
hahaha wow you dont sound secure with all the over compensating. It has nothing to do with other people. Its fun, and a great design. But if you are SO concerned about people thinking things about you that you actively avoid certain things like metal cards, I would say you are in fact concerned.

5 grams increased weight is nothing. Your wallet wont tell a difference.
