    I think you'll find it does work just fine now. Thank you. We had a redirect left on a pre-launch page that was the culprit. Thanks for heads up and thanks for your vote during the Freddies.

    My guess is that you now have the old page in cache. And actually it doesn't matter, the link simply drops you here in Milepoint, there is nothing unique. All registered members of Milepoint are eligible for the ipad drawings (nice that you don't need to re-register, register another account or do hoops and barrels). We're just promoting our support of the Freddie Awards which give all frequent flyers a chance to have their voice heard regarding frequent flyer programs.

    You don't see the promo page if you're already registered at Milepoint, but note the following from the linked page:

    A random drawing will be held weekly at noon (MST) from all registered members of milepoint.
    To earn your chance at an iPad, just register an account on milepoint — the smart, friendly, and fun forum for frequent travelers. The only rule — only one member registration on milepoint allowed during the iPad-A-Week Giveaway promotional period.

    So, it looks like:
    1. All registered milepointers will be included in all six drawings. No need to register separately for the iPad.
    2. You should either not create an additional registration for the iPad drawing, or maybe you're allowed one new registration during the promotional period, but not more.

    Also the American Express link doesn't work. It brings you to their site to log in. I log in and it just goes to my account. No mention of the Freddies.

    You've done it. You just have to be a registered milepointer.

    Yes, you are good to go just for being a member here and good luck to you next Wednesday when we draw the first winner. You'll see notice of that starting on Tuesday. We usually do secondary giveaways with Starbucks and Amazon gift cards for active members so enjoy MilePoint.

    Formatting problems on the page, Firefox 3.6.26 on WinXP
    Yes, I know it's prehistoric browser, I'll try on FF 8 when I get back to the studio.
