WSJ reports on famed Match.com 150x Avios Offer
I have to admit that a smile swept across my face when I read the following article from Scott McCartney at the Wall Street Journal. He mentions a few different instances where point chasers will go great lengths to earn bundles of points and the latest Avios offer was a prime example. Such a prime example that an entire article was written in the WSJ regarding this passion that so many of us hold. Gary Leff was featured – I’d actually never heard the 16 million mile US Airways story, so maybe he’ll do a throwback post to enlighten us 😉 Anyways…the WSJ reports on famed Match.com 150x Avios Offer and it just makes me smile 🙂
Apparently Match.com didn’t even approve the promotion. No wonder they canceled some accounts.
Hmmmmmmmmm…Seems awfully coincidental 😉
Dallas-based Match, a unit of IAC/InterActiveCorp, says it can’t disclose the name of the affiliate marketing company that it says created the promotion without its approval. Normally Match pays marketers for new subscribers generated. In this case, Match says, it had no idea about the offer until sign-ups started flocking to its site.
And goes on to say…
Because it was an “unauthorized promotion,” Match issued refunds and a free seven-day trial to use the service, she says.
