FWIW, I also missed the 2MM gift email and wondered if I had been missed. A quick search revealed that I had, in fact, received it but had missed seeing it. The link above is the same ne I was sent.

It worked for me.

I made 4 Million about two years ago. I completely spaced out on choosing a gift. So I went to the link and there was a spot where you could get a 30- day extension to choose a gift. I selected one and filled out all the information. They said it would be sent out soon.

(I now remember why I didn't do it immediately. Pretty much all the gifts sucked. Nothing stood out so I pretty much forgot about it.)

While I was told my gift would take up to (IIRC) 6 weeks, it arrived in just over ne, nicely gift-wrapped.

For my 3MM gift, I selected a very nice Tumi roll-aboard with a 3MM badge on front. It's traveled nearly 1MM in the past four years, and showing a lot of wear. I'm hoping for a similar gift next summer when I hope to claim one!

I also selected the same roll-aboard as my 3 MM gift. Unfortunately it was not available when I made 4 MM 12 months ago. Hope it is available when you cross the magic milestone in early 2019.

The current MM bag is a Thule Subterra ... I chse that and it's pretty nice. It does not have a badge of any kind on it. I doubt it will last me 1MM.

The Thule looks nicer, more practical and better quality than the Tumi.

Crossed 1MM today. Well I’m not surprised to say NADA. Zilch. Bupkus. Here’s a good tidbit to make y’all 🤨. I was on my first segment FLL-EWR and mentioned to the flight attendant I had 999,100 miles. ‘Guess what this makes?’ I say. He says ‘what?’ Oh yeah a million miles. We got a note about you, congratulations” said half jokingly with a pat on the shoulder. Then proceeds to say ‘I wonder if I could figure how many miles I’ve flown”.

Glad he got “the note” and then made it about him. Thought that was cute.

The nice FA on the EWR-FRA on the next flight shook my hand and said thank you —but only after My wife bragged to him about my million mile achievement or he never would know. LOL.

My disappointment was “pre” diffused by reading here and expecting nothing. So I just had fun w it. Me and Mrs Sacco had a fun time and now we begin our endulgent three days in Paris with no kids “business trip”

Oh well. On to the next million.

Has anyone made Lifetime GS (4MM) without ever having made GS on a yearly basis. I suspect it happens, but might be a rare occurrence?
