    Their Facebook page promises 250 points for a 'like'
    http://www.facebook.com/AloftAustinDomain

    The offer has been running since July 11. They currently have 239 likes. That won't last. ;) They say the offer will run through July 31, I'm guessing they end it early. :p

    I've posted it on my blog, and hat tip to Mommy Points who actually stayed there :D

    Ha ha, first time in a while I have gotten in on one of the deals AND actually stayed at the hotel. ;) I was just shaking my head when I found the deal saying this poor little hotel has no idea what is about to hit them. They said they wanted fans though!

    I click on that link and it takes me to my homepage. Is something wrong with my Facebook or has their FB webpage changed or been taken down?

    Only way to view it through cached Google. They probably put country restrictions on who can view their page. I've seen other companies do this before but i cannot understand why they wouldn't want the wide exposure.

    I had no problems clicking the link and being directed to the FB page. They're up to 731 "Likes" now.

    Looks like this promo was aimed at spreading the word about their new Business Page. The 250 points was supposed to be for the people who were "friends" of the old (non-business) page.

    Despite that, they will still honor the promo for anyone who "Liked" and emailed before 10AM.

    Here's the note they posted on their page (edited for the relevant info):

    They said the points would appear in 5-7 Business days and it has been 8 days. Any comments left on their wall about it get deleted. Seems like they are heading toward getting a lot of the wrong kind of attention.

    I just sent Krista Langley and e-mail asking about this. I received an e-mail that that was not a valid address, so I wasn't going to pursue it, but then she responded and said that she was sending the points into corporate.
