Anyone have issues with getting the 25% discount recently... I selected the 25% discount code, over 140 hours ago, and still nothing.

I got mine about a week after requesting it (that would be about 170 hours or so).

Thanks. I'll wait my 168-170 hours.

Just under 190 hours for the promo code

Data point: I received my promo code 190 hours (7d 22h) after selecting the discount gift.

Nice little perk, but this wait is a joke.
At the very least, the promo code gift booking deadline is a full month from the day you receive the code, and not a month from your birthday (which the T&C's state).

Maybe AC has applied the inverse-square law to the timing as a function of status level.

"Happy Birthday" banner went up, got the email 3 days later and received my code within 24 hours for 25% off. I honestly didn't think I was getting anything, since I didn't last year.

From confetti to receiving discount code by email was less than 24 hours here.

I wonder why mine took over a week. Oh well.

... I didn't see it upthread, but was anyone able to apply eups to their offer? Or not, since it technically comes with a "Preferred Seat"? We're planning a short getaway YYC-YVR in June, and I have a stock of eups I can burn still.
