Match.com canceling memberships booked at 150x through the BA portal without request
ICYMI, Match and Eharmony had absolutely insane promotions over the weekend through the British Airways Avios portal. If you used the portal to start up a Match.com membership you could earn 150 Avios for every dollar you spent on a membership. Eharmony was 130 Avios for every dollar. SAY WHAT?!?! Yes, that happened. A lot of people earned around 82k Avios for about $550. Everything seemed great until OMAAT revealed that the bonuses were only processing on the basic membership, not all of the added features. UH OH! Well, things have gotten even shadier…Two friends that I sent the deal to have received the same exact email today. Match.com is refunding their membership and claiming that they canceled the membership. Except they didn’t. So is anyone else experiencing this: Match.com canceling memberships booked at 150x through the BA portal without request?
Here is the email they both received
I didn’t do the deal myself. Now I’m kinda glad
It just seemed too good to be true, even though it was very publicly advertised, and a lot of people took advantage of the deal, I just didn’t pull the trigger. After the post that OMAAT put up notifying readers that the full amount wasn’t posting I kind of let out a sigh of relief that I hadn’t done the deal, but felt bad for sending it to so many friends. I forwarded them his post so they could get prepared to potentially fight the good fight and get their due points. NOW, with their memberships just being canceled it looks like it’s going to be much more of a battle than I’d even suspected after OMAAT’s post. Neither of my friends are going to cause much issue with the cancelation, nor are they really that bothered by it. To them…it’s just not worth all of the effort.
Any of you experience the same result?
