Passed 1MM May 22, '09 on CO 1087 (MCO-IAH). Currently at 1.6MM and anticipate 2MM March 2016 at the current pace. Keep in mind that I'm a 100% domestic US traveler, with an average of ~1K miles per leg, so I've got mine "the hard way". At my age (56), I'm not confident of hitting 3 (much less 4) million, but one can dream. Or nightmare, take your pick.

Replacement MM Tags?

I've searched, but have not been able to find an answer to whether there is any way to get replacement MM bag tags.

I received one when I got my MM lite last year, which I (without thinking) put on a bag that I checked on a UA flight. It, of course, disappeared.

I've since received two sets of credentials (Gold at the beginning of this year and recently platinum as I crossed 75K a few weeks back), but only the cheap tags accompanied those credentials.

Has anyone successfully asked UA to send them a replacement leather tag (especially if it was lost while checked on a UA flight)?

And yes, I know that there are many nicer luggage tags, and I have some (like my Glaser Designs tag), but I have put my butt in a seat for more than a million miles to earn that tag, and I wouldn't mind having one back. I'm vain that way...

Thanks,
Greg

The current 3MM Tumi bag is not like the one pictured at least according to the e-mail selection choice received last week from UA. We will see what arrives in a few weeks.

With regret I am not able to open the selection e-mail / window after making my choice. I know for sure-

Tumi carry on with 3MM logo with adaptor set.
iPod 64gb.

and believe that was Beats by Dre headphones.

There were once again I believe six different items with the last three being more "classy". My immediate attention was the Tumi set which I also think had the highest overall value.

Add me, currently at 1.2

I passed 1 MM in 2011. Currently at 1.2 MM. Currently doing mostly IAH to NRT routes so it builds up fast.

Hit 1 million on the redeye SFO to IAD last Friday night August 9, 1013 miles out from IAD. Flight was delayed, I ended up not clearing for upgrade (finished at #1), and with all that I forgot about the 1 million until I was about asleep -- and was asleep when it happened! But miles credited by Sunday, was able to make Mrs. my companion immediately, and she was 1K for her Sunday flight credit. And there is a benefit in not having to worry about her requalification every year. I had about 100K old CO miles included, but I was a CO elite a couple times in the 90s with too many CLE and EWR flights between DCA, so I don't feel too guilty about those -- those were lots of flights.

Yes, I know there are some 500 mile minimums in there but can't help that.
Well, my milestone is delayed by a day. Work had me stay here a day longer. Will pass the true 1MM tomorrow (8/15) IAH-SFO.

Does anyone have any recent experience on what, if anything a 2MM received? I will hit that lofty figure next month. Just curious.

I picked the Tumi leather passport holder with zipper which also came with Tumi adaptor over two years ago.

iTouch was one of the 2 MM gift option based on my memory.
