Hello
A friend of mine just got a random, completely non-expected "bonus" of 500,000 miles in her continental airlines frequent flier mileage account.
Another friend of hers got the same too.

Does anyone know what is going on? Is there a glitch in Continental's system? ? And if this does turn out to be a mistake, can she keep the miles?

500000 miles is a HUGE amount.

Why don't these things ever happen to me?  Laugh out loud

The right thing to do, of course, is to inform them of the error. I would be MIGHTY tempted not to though...

Someone on flyertalk.com asked just today about a "theoretical" 1,000,000 mile addition to their account. Sounds to me like their system is being played with (i.e. hacked) or has gone haywire.

The sad reality is, they will have long since corrected the problem before she could even find one standard award on CO J!  Sad  Insane
