Interesting. I can't decide if this is tone-deaf or just wishful thinking.

I too am wondering what they are thinking by running this promotion at the previously planned time, if that is what they do. Buying travel service provider currency of any sort using real money seems to be something that is more of a gamble now than it has been in prior years — more than it’s ever been before for this promotion.

Wishful thinking, I’d say.

It is neither. At the time when essentially no one is flying, staying in hotels, or renting cars, why not sell some points/free night certificates/etc. even at discount prices to put some $$ in the bank? From what I remember, the last year deal were not that stellar
especially when considering the rapid devaluation of hotel programs.

So it's grasping at straws.

Unless they up the value in the deals. Based on the previous trajectory, these deals will be sitting. There won't be a "click right at 10 AM" issue this time around.

Personally, I don't think the deals will be great even in this situation, specifically because I think most of the deals have already been finalized prior to this COVID-19 situation in the US.

Not working for me now. Maybe I was getting a cached version.

Their terms are just a little out of date.
