are these expirations hard coded or a nice manager can over ride that? or customer service can issue a replacement as a "one time courtesy"?
I'll buy them :)
Not as bad as it sounds. I should be able to get more.
I just found a new supply of forks!

In may case it was never a store to begin with. Google maps sent me over to their corporate office. I never thought to check the store locator on their site before driving a few miles.

I booked Sheraton Tel Aviv for 2 nights - 28k SPG and completely forgot about it and wasn't emailed any confirmations before my stay. I ended up staying the Ritz.

The hotel charged me $280 and says they could only waive the $280 fee if they redeposit the points.
Is it possible to get everything back? Any tips?

I was charged $280 for missing my hotel stay (booked with points). 
Any chance I get it back?

See if they'll rebook you for a different night. Then cancel... Alot easier to get a hotel to rebook a missed stay for free than actually waiving the no show free ime.

Seems like they refunded the points. And they offered to waive the $280 charge if they get to keep the points.

Not really playing much of a game, but forgot to take my EZ-Pass along with me in a rented car. Expecting a bill with service charges on NYS cashless tolls from Enterprise.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
