No pts yet for me. Did you receive an email from Mike Buddy saying that he would give you the points? He hasn't responded to my emails.

Still no love for me after repeated emails.

But I'm still hopeful. I really want this for the US Airways Grand Slam.

Got this from Mike today:
thank you for verifying your number. I will submit your points to your account. I do make the submissions in a batch and I will make that submission on Tuesday of next week and the points should process in a few business days following that submittal.

I'm sure I'll get yelled at for this, but this is just disingenuous of him. For those of us to whom he promised points weeks ago now, if he hasn't submitted for them yet, and needs us to continue to pester him, that's pathetic.

But I'll keep pestering. That seems to be the key.

I did receive the initial email on March the 1st saying I would get the points, but nothing after it. I also emailed Hilton numerous times, because they were not as responsive as they said they would be. I'm sure they were overwhelmed, but just stay vigilante. The points were promised and should be delivered as the hotel said.

Having received no response to my emails, I was surprised to see the 10k points in my account.

Got my points after one night at the Hampton Inn Providence and one night at the Hampton Inn Raynham this week.

Cancelled rooms at Hilton Providence to give them a try. Loved the Hampton Inn PVD, great little hotel. Spoke with Mike, wonderful guy. Basically their "social media guy" told them to "put it everywhere." That guy is an idiot, and I hope they aren't using him anymore. Talked to another employee who said he had to come in at midnight to help field calls from around the world, mostly India, during the thick of it. Pointchasers FTL.

They'll continue to earn my business.

If they are no longer giving out points to new "texters" can we close this thread?
