            You have the privilege of being poorer .

            As for the list "The Teach" put up, I believe some of those have changed -
            - Didn't get a Dedicated Customer Service phone number.
            - Don't recall being offered any Platinum exclusive items.
            - Not sure about RCCA VIP Events, couldn't afford any of them (per the aforementioned privilege).
            - Quarterly Gift Cert used to be 10%, latest one was $15 off an order of $100 or more.
            - Don't remember any Platinum Exclusive Sales.
            - They do have the monthly giveaway which you're entered into that (although I believe there is a similar thing for Gold Members).
            - You are eligible to get a door number for one of your orders.
            - I believe you get a free shipping code, but if I remember correctly it's for in stock items only.

                  As for the list "The Teach" put up, I believe some of those have changed -
                  - Didn't get a Dedicated Customer Service phone number. - there is a different number for platinum members
                  - Don't recall being offered any Platinum exclusive items. - this has pretty much gone away
                  - Not sure about RCCA VIP Events, couldn't afford any of them (per the aforementioned privilege). - these events have pretty much stopped also
                  - Quarterly Gift Cert used to be 10%, latest one was $15 off an order of $100 or more. - that was the quarterly sale on the next line down (they very rarely do these, definitely not one a quarter) - there is a coupon code that can be used once a quarter for 10% off an order, we used to have the codes that worked online but now it seems you have to call as the usual way for these codes no longer works
                  - Don't remember any Platinum Exclusive Sales. - The one mentioned above was one (finally)
                  - They do have the monthly giveaway which you're entered into that (although I believe there is a similar thing for Gold Members). - yes, similar but typically better prizes go to Platinum members, like a free ARC for Gold vs. a free Elite or Sample for Platinum
                  - You are eligible to get a door number for one of your orders. - this always holds true but some folks have waited a decade or more to finally have their number pulled
                  - I believe you get a free shipping code, but if I remember correctly it's for in stock items only. - correct, in stock items only but works real well for the end of year sales to grab a big order at a discount and then have it shipped for free

                      So this (uploaded image) wasn't the Platinum Quarterly Gift Cert E-mail? I had to cut the code, because they don't want sharing the code, but it follows the same pattern as the last 10% one for Q1.

                        It was an exclusive quarterly sale. Your usual quarterly discount code gets you 10%. That one offered $15 off $100 so it was really only good for a car or two where as your 10% one would have been good for 10% a total order no matter how many cars. So spend over $150 and you would have received more than $15 off. T-Money even pointed out on the forum to make sure you still took advantage of your regular quarterly discount as well, although you can't combine on the same order.

                        The regular quarterly 10% codes used to have a regular theme to them so that they could easily be used online but that has changed now and requires a call to CS. You will not receive an email for your usual quarterly discount. It's just a given thing per quarter. Those emails will be the exclusive sales in addition to

                            Not bad. 7 years for me. Just glad I got one when Elites were still actually Elites
