With any other company I would say it was a misplaced decimal point. With Cartera, I suspect it is the actual offer.

I'm sure the local, state, and federal governments will appreciate the bailout.

I think I just figured out their strategy:

Anyone who ate $50 worth of Domino's pizza wouldn't live to complain about the miles not posting/posting incorrectly, so they can make any offer they like!

What do u you figure the 144 miles are worth in pizza equity? I'm thinking one-quarter of a pepperocini.

This makes me just roll my eyes, toss my hands up and sigh. Cartera grabbed up all the airlines and what's really strange is that the other day when I got the email stating they now have the Div Miles one, I was like huh?

So I went ON the US Air and the mall shown there was still the version that FreeCause managed!! BOTH malls existed for at least a day there!!

Not that FC are any saints, but at least for piddly mall transactions between 1 and 1,500 miles per purchase, they post your mileage with relative ease and timing, AND they did well during the entire GS promo.

Now Cartera comes in, grabs this and you just KNOW that anyone who bought anything from the mall for GS promo at the last minute will be screwed for a hit. It just somehow wont work out, I know it!

As well, next year's GS will be a freakin' mess! Mark my words on that one, mates! They'll revamp the mall site like mid-GS promo or something.

These people are jokers. They say they are overwhelmed and yet they get more and more malls from all the airlines. It IS a virtual monopoly! Both in terms of 'almost having everyone' and in terms of being only reachable online and not live!

I am so going to the AGs office with everything I have already in terms of missing and messed up mileage across the board. Now that it IS all in one company, my case will be more clear. I will try to cite these fools for taking over the gamut and not even being able to handle it. And they have no intent on paying out. They can just act too busy to help!

In the mean time I think I need to buy a boat load of pizza JUST to see if they pay out the mileage! haha

Based on the tax rate, I should be able to write off the whole purchase, right?

Somebody with a lot of time on their hands and lots of disposable income please do something to put these jokers out of business.

Cartera is everything one shouldn't do to be a trustworthy business. The amount of "errors" they make is amazing. I think they play some sort of a sick and twisted lunatic "insert random #'s here" game with random offers and get amusement out of the chaos it generates.

Cartera never seizes to amaze me. If you look at their executive team you have the impression that they are a capable, educated company.

Then you see the reality of how they operate and you wonder why any VC angel every gave them a penny.

Many we should contact the VCs and tell them about all this. I can promise you Cartera is doing everything they can to hide the truth from the investors...
