Wow, for a second I thought it was April 1. No, not because someone was playing a bad joke on me, but rather because that’s when my 1K kit from the previous year usually arrives in my mailbox. 😉
Anyway, if my calendar isn’t lying to me December just started, and I already have my 1K card good through 2011! While it’s not an extravagant kit, I’m just happy to have my card this early. As usual it came with ten drink chits, a few “Going the Extra Mile” certificates, and some advertisements. I wish United would just have “currency coupons” instead of drink chits which could be used for snackboxes, sandwiches, etc., but at the same time I usually get sandwiches and snacks for free anyway.
Now you wanna know what really hurts? The mileage meter (in the picture above)! Notice how it stops at “1K status.” Now I realize my balance is so big that it would go off the page, but seriously, how about stroking my ego just a bit and making my jumbo jet go off the page? 😉
