Let's use this thread to report actual delivery of the packets and comments about the kit contents.
Please no "nothing yet" posts , at least until we get to 31 Jan 2019, when that may mean there is an issue. UA just states you should get the kit in January.

In the past, UA has used mystatus.united.com to report shipment status of the kits.
Not confirmed yet, the link on mystatus.united.com for requesting luggage tags suggests there may be no physical Silver or Gold membership kits for 2019. Appears confirmed no Gold / Silver cards are requestable
Also new this year is the "welcome letter" on mystatus.united.com

Past years

Similar question as some above. Basically got my 1K package the day I got the GS invite, should I still expect a GS package? Nothing yet of course.

Received my 1K packet today Picton NZL (top of the South). Same as last year. Like the coasters. We have a lot of house guests. Keeps the coffee table free of beer bottle rings.

Received my GS package yesterday. Luggage tags are New York. Drink coasters have Auckland case and coasters themselves are Amsterdam, Auckland, Rio de Janeiro and Singapore. I wonder if anyone collects the - kind of like Pokémon "gotta catch 'em all."

GS kit as others have described received in SFO yesterday, including MM companion card. Earliest I’ve received the kit ... the MM companion card always seemed to delay things.

Exact same thing - Platinum packet arrived 2 days ago, made 1K in mid-Dec. Hopefully the 1K packet comes and we just end up with some extra drink tickets that we won't use?

For those who received the packages, does your status say “pending” or “shipped” in your account? Do they actually update it to shipped once it’s mailed out?

Noticed the same thing - Can't post pics because of the 5 post rule but mine broke just by tightening the strap. Why, oh why did they decide to redesign it?

As previously posted, got !K kit basically the day I got the GS invite. I am told I will get my "kit" still, what is in it. I already got the drink coupons and luggage tags for 1K and drink coasters. Also, for GS are they still giving out 2 GPU's just for the invite or has that been dropped? Of course I have all that I got for 1K and PQMs.

I got both my Platinum and 1K packets today. Qualified for Platinum early December and 1K on December 30. Website still says pending.
