I think what really bothered stamps.com wasn't the $50 referral (they only pay it if the customer sticks around after the trial period), but rather all the marketing materials and the free $5 postage they've sent out.

An account manager at the Chase UR Mall simply misunderstood the terms of the $50 referral and loaded the stamps.com campaign with a $25 signup bonus.

So my 2500 points posted quickly in July. I canceled a few weeks later in August, just as the free membership ended. I just realized that at that point I received a "-2500" points in my account, canceling out the bonus for trying stamps.com.

Anyone else have this happen after canceling?

mypoints offers 1000 points for signing up with stamps.com. If affiliates are not allowed to offer incentives, they don't seem to know about it.

no email form stamps.com for me yet. I did have to get Chase to credit me for it. Will call to cancel (just in case) and hope Chase doesn't retract the points.

at least I got a $5 mailing label - perfect for the small sized Priority box!

No, that doesn't make any sense because the offer was for making a new account and trying stamps.com, not for continuing to subscribe. Did you contact customer support?

Also let the pile-on of moralizing "you knew 2,500 UR points for no cash outlay HAD to be a mistake" posts begin....

Received the same email as everyone here. Today, I checked my Chase account and so far, I still see 2500 miles pending with activity date on sept 5th and posting date of sept 7th. My statement closes this Wednesday so i shall see whether I receive the points or not

Will report after statement closes.

I had the 2500 posted on my last statement. I also canceled my Stamps.com account the day I saw 2500 points pending on my UR-activity page. Hopefully they're not retracted later on this month. My gut tells me they won't though.

I have a feeling that Chase will not pull the 2,500 points out.

On what basis could they justify pulling out the pts? They just might even lose this one in their slanted arbitration never mind a real law suit. What is their defense, neither Chase nor Stamps.com know how to design a promotion? Are we to just assume that all contracts are to be voided at any time despite the written terms of the contract?

Ugh. Slanted arbitration, lawsuit?

Over...$25?

I could care less if they took back the 2500 points. Not like it cost me anything.
