United, before the merger with Continental, used to offer Lifetime membership of the Red Carpet Club (now rebranded United Club) when you passed 2 Million Miles.
United handled this by sending qualifying members a membership card on an annual basis. Often this took time to come, or the trigger to send it didn’t work for some reason. A very long time ago United sold Lifetime Membership of RCC and these were good value (in retrospect), but I failed to appreciate that back then. The Lifetime Memberships have been gone for several years.
So imagine my surprise when I received in the post yesterday a new card for United Club which has Lifetime Member printed on the front.
I need to take VERY good care of this card!
