I told him that reports were saying that since April 11, the 50% rebate weren't posting as fast. So he asked me where I saw that. I sent him here, among other places.    He was like, "oh, I know DansDeals". He said he spoke to his supervisor and he said average turnaround is still 3 business days. But, then again, he doesn't work in that department.

Not to keep piling on, but for anyone reading, the #1 rule of travel hacking is never to call the airline, hotel, card company, etc when there's a deal. In almost every case (especially with a good deal such as this), there's just no practical reason to do so.

Thank you for that wonderful revelation.

Not to keep piling on, but for anyone reading, the #1 rule of travel hacking is to never post anything you want kept alive publicly, and rule #2 is to never to call the airline, hotel, card company, etc when there's a deal. In almost every case (especially with a good deal such as this), there's just no practical reason to do so.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Rule # 2: If you do contact them, dont admit it in Public or you will get flamed

Lol. TBH, while I agree that it was in bad judgement, in this case, I fail to see how this is damaging, A. because there's nothing in this thread that's news to anyone, B. Because they already did delay the posting of the points...

Don't worry about it.  People here are just overreacting.
