I've shredded plastic cards with no problem. It probably depends on the shredder (and mine my no means is some industrial strength beast), but my shredder takes them no problem.
I recently added an AU on CSP, and saw that the new card has "Contains metal - Do not shred" on it. That's a change since 1/2015. They also included an envelope for sending back any expired metal cards (even though the original primary and AU cards are still valid).

Citi is notoriously slow and won't expedite. It's annoying. There was a time last year where they were taking 2 or 3 entire weeks to ship cards.
Barclaycard is especially bad. Even on AF cards, unless you pay an extra shipping fee, they can take 3 weeks. Some people get in over their heads with Arrival+ when they realize they have more like 2 months than 3 to spend $3k.
One nice thing about Citi cards is that the minimum spend window is extended a bit so the customer gets a full three months. My beef is mostly with the competence of customer service.
