2023 Medallion Status Bag Tags

I earned Diamond status for the first time this September. Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get new bag tags? I've been Platinum for a couple of years so I haven't cared much when new Platinum tags arrive, but I am definitely excited about getting Diamond tags!

Takes a few months for the new tags. For those that don't care to walk around with brag tags, they fetch a decent sum on eBay. I always sell mine and take my daughter out to a nice lunch with that $50-60.

It boggles my mind that people pay for these tags - for all practical purposes, they're useless - except the SS cable, which I use on my "real" luggage tags.

I have found that I need to use Loctite to prevent the SS cable connector from unscrewing. I lost several cables and tags before I learned my lesson.

Its seemed to me lately that each level of status comes quicker than the last. Silver took months, Gold took around 6 weeks, and Platinum barely took a month. Maybe I just hit them at the right times? Who knows.

I am floored anybody would pay that much. Do they think the tags really matter?

Can I sell my 1MM plexiglass brick for anything?

Each and every year I sell them. I'd guess I'm close to $1K throughout the years selling all these PM and DM tags. Dunno about the 1MM brick but the red MM brag tags DL sent me for hitting Million Miler brought over $100 for the pair. Takes all of about 15 minutes total to snap photos of the tags, write the listing, print a shipping tag and seal up an envelope. Surprised more people dont do it too.

I'm thankful for fake people and their egos. I'd guess this is why there's such a huge market for counterfeit designer handbags, watches, etc.

Whoa! Wait a minute....SS cables? Received my Diamond tags for the last 2 years both with cheap clear plastic loops for attaching!

The SS cables can be had pretty cheap on Amazon.

I haven’t been Diamond for a long time but I was. “Charter Diamond” What do those tags go for? Asking for a friend.

I never got the silver tags. My Gold tags were supposed to come in the mail, but they either got lost or stolen (I have USPS Informed Delivery and clearly saw the envelopt in the email, but it never made it to me). Hopefully the Platinum tags make it!
