Default Collection of Return Guests Pins

Hey im just wondering if anyone has returning guests carnival pins they dont want any longer? If so i would love to pay shipping to get them to me. I am growing my collection of carnival items and love these pins. Shipping in a normal envelope costs $.64 generally a little more than a stamp at USPS. Let me know and ill get with you either on paypal or another way to ship it to me. THANKS EVERYONE..

Will you be turning around and selling these otherwise FREE pins on Ebay for an incredible profit?

According to John Heald's blog, they are supposed to resume giving them to Platinum cruisers only and also selling them in every ship's gift shop.

So you could just wait and get someone sailing on each ship to pick one up for you.

Just got back from Conquest yesterday. They still had the pin for all gold and platinum guests. They gave it out the next to last night along with invitation to past guests reception.

We spotted the pin on the cabin steward's cart as we were heading out to dinner. However, when we got back after dinner, none was in our room and neither was invitation considering this is our 3rd Carnival cruise. I assumed that they had limited these to platinum members. We found out the next day that the gold members at our dinner table got the pin and reception. We enquired with the cabin steward and he said 7 of the cabins in his area were gold members but the management staff didn't give him anything to give to us. He then went to get the pins for us and suggested that we complain with Guest Services Desk. We did, and got a weak apology along with 1 free drink coupon for each person.

So at least on our Aug 16-23rd cruise, all gold and platinum still got pins. I also didn't see that same pin in any of the gift shops.

There is no exact science to this though I think. Because last year I was on the Legend and I did not get a pin, but I had already gotten one in 2003. I have been Platinum for a while now so who knows. I will be on the Valor in a month, so I should get one then no matter what the rules are.
