I had just over 10k and I'm in the same boat. I THINK I applied for the extension, but IIRC there was no confirmation of any kind, nor anything displayed in your account, so how the hell would you...

"hey" is the language of the youths, seems Nectar got some feedback from a survey or a brilliant executive who thought Hey appealed more to a younger demo.
