Strange Mailing from UA

Arriving in the mail y'day was a Global Services membership packet--but upon closer inspection it was not for 2011 but rather for 2010. This is not a replacement card-but rather a full membership packet (like I have received before for GS) but this time it was for 2010. I called Milage Plus and GS and they have no idea what is going on.

On top of this, I have been told that I did not make GS status for 2011. Hum..not sure what is going on.

Typical postal delay?

A new program whereby they send you a memento of status gone by??

Seriously, though, did your '10 fly/spend lead you to expect 2011 GS? If so, I would remain at least hopeful that this is just some sort of mixup. And if you're headed to an airport w/ a GS rep anytime soon (like before the end of Jan, when presumably your GS status would expire if this hasn't been sorted out by then), you might want to seek one of them out and ask them to look into matters for you. I haven't been GS for a handful of years now but there were two of them sitting next to me at IAD a month or so back, so I guess they still exist. And back in my GS days, they could be pretty darned helpful (their very job depends on your needing them for something at least from time to time). A thought, anyway...

Good luck!

Perhaps it fell behind a conveyor belt at the post office, and was just found?
