Does anyone have a copy of the T&C? I need it to fight against my denial. I used this site and they said it's not valid since they need to call to get the rate (it's not printed on their website):

Thats correct. It had to be a publicly posted rate.

I got a free night in the Helmsley. Thanks Dan.
If I book the night in my name, can I give it to a friend? or Does the person checking in have to be the same person who booked it?

If they are sold out of the room that they emailed about, is there anything to do about that? Is there a contact to call? I thought i saw one early but cant find it now.

I submitted after the deadline so I don't know if she is denying me the free room or the rate match. But I am definitely disputing this...

Can anyone guess why?

Seems like they're bad at math.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I'm hoping this will distract them from the fact that I sent in my application after the official deadline....crazier things have happened.
