2020 MP member kits discussion - contents, pics, actual delivery,... pls no "not yet"

I received my 2020 GS packet today. It includes the standard welcome literature and benefits summary; large and small luggage tags (Denver 2020), robin's egg blue United baggage handle, GS branded wireless charger, 9 employee service recognition cards, and 5 (only) drink vouchers. Didn't see a thread for this, but feel free to merge if appropriate.

Pleasantly surprised to see the return of the employee recognition cards, hopefully employees will get some kind of value from them upon receipt. Disappointed that they cut the number of drink chits in half. Enjoyed giving mine out as gifts to friends as well as fellow travelers.

Here is a photo of the GS branded charger that is coming with the 2020 kits for anyone who is curious. 1K may have a different logo or same.

As disappointing as a cut to the drink chits is, I must admit FAs rarely accept them even if I order a double and even with a companion.

With the first drink now being free I'm surprised they are still giving them out at all!

My experience is the same as yours. I think I'm still working my way through my 2016 ones...

As a Denver-ite, I'm looking forward to the Denver tags. I constantly get them ripped off (literally), stolen or otherwise disappear. The wireless charger is a nice touch and an interesting use of the GS marketing.

I might be actually looking forward to this recognition kit for once !

Are the tags specific to your "home" airport? Or just random?

Not that Iíd expect you to photograph it with your personal info, but is there no more physical membership card for any tier?

Might as as well just cut it across the board, now.

"Employee recognition cards": a shame they don't/didn't provide them to 1Ks; those look pretty cool! ^


I would have used them, although maybe only one-out-of-ten flights!
