New GPUs/RPUs are good till 1/14?

Just crossed 1K earlier this week and my 6 GPUs and 2 RPUs popped into my account...and to my surprise they all expire 1/31/2014.
I thought they were suppose to expire 11/2013.
Is this a glitch? Anyone else get this?

And actually, since status doesn't expire until 2/1 of the following year, both 1K status and GPUs will expire simultaneously.

Then online I applied my husband's RPU to my res which cleared immediately.

I tried to do it all in 1 phone call but I thought the agent's head would explode, so I did it step by step and it took no time at all.
I thought that 2011 RPU was going out with the trash at the end of the year, so very happy about this!
Are these Regional Premier Upgrades or GLOBAL premier upgrades you're talking about? I thought they were extending only GPUs?

That's what I keep trying to tell everyone. It was a 2011 RPU that was exp 12/31. I extended it and already attached it to a new res.

The agent didn't even question it. It was at 7:30 this morning central time.

I spent one hour talking and on hold with UA MP and made no progress on extending my wife's RPUs earned in 2011 and expiring this month. Obviously the agents are all over the place on this.

All I can say is maybe I got an agent who didn't know any better? But weren't there some people earlier on in this thread who also got it yesterday?

Maybe set a reminder for yourself - 1 week out - letting all the dust/changes settle - and call back.

I would actually do the opposite and call back every 5 minutes until I get an agent who will do it -- and before they get new memos!
