Cool Are you kidding me? My 2009 card came in?

So I got my new 1K card today for 2009???? UA can't be that efficient can they? I had to beg for a card last year - twice via fedex becuase the first one was lost by Fedex and then when I asked about drink chits last year - I got the " It's not part of the package sir" speech from several people.

Now I have a new card thru 2010 and I am happy to report 10 new shiny drink chits in the package.

Maybe if they put the superstar who is on time this year for this program in charge of more than UA might actually get something done on time.

Oh yeah - almost forgot - the same color card and print on it as last year. And the welcome kit was really weak. Glad they saved on the packaging.

got my 1p card today

I went from 3P to 2P back in September... then made 1P in Nov. Just got my 2P card in the mail today. It's actually the first card I have ever gotten from United (never got anything for GM or 3P) so I was rather pleased, though I would love the 1P card to show up so I could get that elusive *G lounge access abroad.

Looks like United is shipping out all the cards in the same time. I received my premier card for 2009 last night.

Actually, I've rarely had to use my 1P card to get *G lounge access. 1P is printed on your boarding pass so it's really not an issue.

If only all UA lounges could be like LH Senator Lounges...

Errr...no. Travel outside the US and try and enter non-UA *G lounges and no card will in most cases get you as far as the door and no further.

I hope they don't waste resources sending us 1P cards, as we'll requalify for 1K in two weeks.

That would seem to be the first ^ for UA in a while. Maybe they'll send me my card before April this time round.

called MP about 2 weeks ago and spoke to some indian agent whom seem like he wasnt keen in providing basic customer service courtesy...now the 2P card which if its coming...will be a waste...
