Well, that's lame. The "supervisor" should've been aware of the promo. And if they were aware, then this would be a pure bait and switch... a la AC styles.

Got is as a 25k used it to change my award flight for a family of 4 to Florida in February. I live in a small town in Quebec with an airport with 1 to 3 flights a day. Therefore flights are expensive so I normally book with points.

So instead of 93k points and 283 in taxes for family assigned seats in the last rows of the plane, it now cost me 1884.xx with bulkhead seats think this was worth it with two small children 3 and 5.

Used my code to fly my folks out to visit later this month, and cut $300 off their Comfort fares in the process.

Birthday has come and gone with nothing. Feeling slighted.

Has anyone tried to use one of the birthday promo codes on AE? Or, are they only applicable to revenue tx?

Promo codes are only valid for cash bookings. As soon as you switch the website to looking for a points booking, the promo code box disappears.

I assumed the code wasnt transferable, but this seems to confirm that I am wrong. Were you flying with them per chance?

Happy birthday! Our household is doubly slighted. Wonder if it is the American addresses.
