Booked Corp Code, 3rd Party

I booked a stay at a BW code under a random corp code I found online and had no issues with the stay, however, no points posted. So I called up BW who said that my booking had to have been made on Orbitz. It does seem a bit strange to me that the Orbitz rate would be available to be booked on Bestwestern.com.

Didn't you get an e-mail confirm. from BW when you booked online?

I did. The rep claimed on the phone that 3rd party stays get these too, which I know to be BS.

Good luck with this.

Unless you know the details of the corporate code you used and whether you have stepped on some land mine, I would drop this.

Maybe it is b.s. and maybe it is some very big deal if somebody bothers to follow up. Since you have zero control and don't know, the risks are yours. Sort of like breaking into a house and having the owner point a gun at you and taking your wallet. Sure, he has robbed you, but you can't quite call the police to complain.
