can you cancel it?

Yes, All you need is an email address and credit card that's not used already with netflix. If you don't have a CC that's not used, create a paypal account with the new email address and use any CC.

What hits did you make that you expected to post so quickly? Buy, share, gift miles should post almost immediately, and some Points.com swaps post almost immediately. Most others probably run on weekly or monthly processes. It's only been 4.5 days since the promo started, and two of those are weekend days.

They're a merchant in the Choice Hotels Shopping Mall, which can be used to earn Choice Hotels points towards a convert hotel points to miles hit.

I have no points in choice program and i am targeting 40 hits. Its definitely cheaper than buying 2K choice points.

It doesn't give me a netflix hit.

Is there a special place where one can check whether hits post or not yet?

26 hits so far, 2 posted, $771 outlay for around 160,000 miles (inclusive of earned during getting hits and PQM). e-Rewards and e-Miles are sure hits for me as I am almost up to the required transfer limits. Planning to do the rest via stays and car rentals that will be free to me as my company pays.

Good luck everyone!

Where do you see "hits" being posted? Isn't September 28th the 1st sweep for "hits"?

20 hits so far with cash out lay $108.31.... Will hit another 12 via next 6 weeks work with hotel stays/car rentals..


Leaves me for 4 more and need to decide between:
BOA Debit Card $30
Marriott 10K Transfer $0
Hilton 10K Transfer $0
Buy Miles $30
Share Miles $43
FTD $45 or less
ING TBD
Nexflit TBD
Office Max TBD
TeleFlora $45 or less
One of the wine clubs TBD

Going to wait on these and see if deals pop and and what posts for people...I should be under $250 easy for 100K miles plus probably another 20K from transfer and buy/share.....not too shabby!!!!

That is correct. I saw them posted in the statement. My relatively large outlay, by the way, was a show I actually wanted to see with rather expensive tickets instead of going the poet slam route...

I don't think the cost for hotel transfers should be set as zero: you could put them to good use instead (say, hotel redemption)

I ordered a Supershuttle, but at DCA. I can actually use it and I'm paying the same rate as DFW. How about that -- actually using something bought from the GS

Still waiting on my US Airways MC + BofA debit card, don't know what's taking so long.

Sitting tight at 14 hits, but once those cards come in, I'll have 20 by the end of the week! But my outlay is already at $396 ($295 for 20K miles bought); wish I had a company I could charge hotel stays and rental cars to.
