"Technology- The pilot of a Mexican airliner pushed the wrong button, radioed an air-piracy alert. The false alarm dis-con-boob-i-rated a lot of people and passengers. And that's not all, the Kellogg company had informed thousands of employees that they had one 25,000 airline miles. "

Kellogg's has been running a contest where one winner a day gets 25,000 miles.
It appears they had some issues and notified oodles and oodles of people that they had won. They've since been notifying the "not winners" of the computer error and awarding them 500 miles as a "sorry" bonus.
