TK Sending RFID Baggage Tags

Yesterday I received an envelope from TK with 2 RFID Baggage Tags. I think this is the gift TK was telling about since the start of 2017.

Anyone else got it?

I imagine, like Qantas, they will roll it out on domestic routes only and therefor might only send it out to members with a Turkish address

You are probably right. I have not received them, but I am not based in TR and I never fly on Turkish domestic itineraries.

Canada - had them in the mail today.

Nice idea, but boy was that horrible English in the enclosed letter. Seriously, TK, how can you fly to 250+ destinations but not find a decent English copywriter / translator? It just makes you look amateurish and silly.
gilbertaue and starflyergold like this.

Yet another thread filling up with "I got them, too" It'd be more helpful if it's indicated which statuses are receiving the tags. Based on the ones that responded, it seems it's for Elite and above. I'm personally Classic Plus and have not received anything thus far - not located in Turkey.

Sweden - got them last week. Only the Elites got it - Mr. doesn't get any as he is only a classic plus.

They are basically plastic cards and you need to activate it before using it for the first time.
