anyone got 5k miles from mci promo for callingcard only

hi guys...

i signed up for mci-callingcard 5000 miles promotion using http://www.mciworldcom.com/united . i never received any of the 1000 miles per month, but the regular miles (5 per $ spend) post fine.

i called mci cs at least 10 times already. it is just a mess. csr keep telling me

1. "there is no promo like that..."
2. you only get 5k miles promo when you sign up for long distance..."
3. "this offer is for non-us-residents only..."

as i read the rules, terms and conditions there is nothing in that promo where you have to sign up for long distance or be a non-us-resident. btw... how can a non-us-resident sign up for long distance????

anyway... did anyone get 5k miles for just signing up for the calling card or anyone have any idea what to do?

thx...

I had the same experience with the American Airlines version of this scam.

I signed up with the Delta version. It took foreverrrrr...but the first 1000-mile bonus came through last month. Good look with your bonus.

I signed up for 'scam' last year and also had loads of problems with MCI. They pulled stuff like.....a month is our billing system month, not a normal calendar month (their offer states...earn 1000 per month in each of the first 5 months you have the card by using the card that month). I never received all 5000 miles (maybe just 4000)...but it took a lot of fighting with disinterested, unfriendly MCI agents.

THEN they have the #%$!'s to start charging me $1.00/month to OWN the card. That has since stopped, I think.

I met Bill McGowan (MCI's original founder) years ago. He would be rolling over in his grave if he knew that MCI has become AT&T.

I signed up for the AA version of the card. I received my first 1000 bonus miles about one month after I got the card. So far, so good, I hope I get the other 4K.
