Wonder if it will stack with the accidental promos that were honored. That would be interesting since some people got triple miles, and if these would stack, trips would be about free with BS fares during this period.

I am curious about this too; I'll get to find this out in five days because I have an anytime fare and a promo that (may) stack with the 2x pts.

Did you cancel and rebook the flight today?

Instead of doing a cancel today, I did a change itinerary, but booked the exact same BS flight. I should still get the bonus points right?

The general wisdom here is no, you need to cancel and rebook in order to receive the bonus. Since your flight is BS, there should be no barriers to doing so (losing EBCI, fare increase, etc.).

Stack this with the SJU tripple points for 4x or 5x for A+. My math says 5x = 100% rebate. LAX-SJU BS r/t for $1476.40 ($1448.40 base fare) will net an A+ 86905 points. That's $1448.42 base fare @ 60 points per $.

Amazing free trip for me and my CP!

You absolutely will not receive the bonus for a changed itinerary - it must be cancelled and rebooked.

My friend who got the accidental 3X points offer, is A+, and could book a trip to SJU would most likely get 6X points for a trip correct? Maybe 7X if this new nationwide promo stacks as well. That just doesn't make any sense to me, but a lot of things that WN does don't make sense to me.

This could be a case of where an inept IT department errors in our favor.

But I'll wait until Friday and see if this does in fact stack.

Blah so I have to rebook all my flights

Of course - if nothing else, I've learned to read those T&C's carefully. I cancelled and rebooked as opposed to changing it.

Perfect. Please do let us know if the promos stack.

The flights I have booked during the promo are all on super cheap WGA fares.. if I change I will pay a lot more.. might be worth it if they were TQP=/
