Bizarre 500,000 Mile Bonus On Continental?

Wed Sep 10, 2003 5:52 am


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.

Here is the post - apparently a problem with the Mastercard Spin & Win game

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
