Double A+ credit birthday promotion

Has anyone received double A+ credits for booking a flight during their birthday month?

I booked during my birthday month (July) and took the trip the first week of August. I've yet to receive the extra credits and have emailed AirTran a couple times through the website but haven't heard back a word.

If anyone received them, how long did they take to post?

I never heard of this benefit. For the last few years, though, on my birthday they sent me 4 credits.

I just went back and looked at the original email, it says bonus credits will take 8-10 weeks to post. Seems like an eternity in this day and age!

Was this targeted? I'm virtually certain I received no such e-mail.

I have no idea. Here's what I received:

In celebration of your birthday this July, enjoy double A+ Rewards credits on your next AirTran Airways flight. To earn double A+ Rewards credits simply:

Go to AirTran.com between July 1, 2011, and July 31, 2011,
and book your AirTran flight for travel by September 30, 2011.

Enjoy the flight! Once you complete your travel, double A+ Rewards credits
will be posted to your account within 8-10 weeks.

On behalf of all the Crew Members at AirTran Airways I wish you a very happy birthday.

Warm regards,
Tad Hutcheson
Vice President of Marketing and Sales
AirTran Airways, Inc.

As a data point, my June birthday credits came through on 9/2.

FWIW, I did get this offer, but didn't need to purchase any FL tickets while the offer was valid.

Hope you have a happy birthday, plagwate!

It's in April. Of course I won't be taking advantage of the offer. My last FL flight is an award trip that is scheduled for June.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

I was not even aware of this promotion, and was pleasantly flabbergasted when the 2 points from the (AirTran) sky posted in my account.

Did book 2 flights right on my birthday Aug 23: One completed Sept 25, the other Oct 9, and got the 2A+ yesterday Nov 8. It could have been the 10 weeks.

...... Ah! Just checked my email, did get a promotion happy birthday email, still unopened till now, from Airtran. Now I am going to be greedy, and wonder if that promotion is per flight, and I am going to receive another 2A+. Too bad my birthday was not between Sep 13 and Nov 14, otherwise I would have received 6 A+ for booking and completing one roundtrip economy during that time of double A+ promotion... he!he!
