I'm posting this outside of the long running thread on this "debacle" as I don't want to get wrapped up in some pointless debate. Whatever your opinion is, go with it. However, the more and more I read people's responses in the Verizon AAdvantage shopping mall mistake thread, the more upset I get. Obviously, and as evidenced by the responses on multiple forums, this was a mistake (come on...buy a $3 to $6 item, get over 80k AA miles?). Opportunistically / greedily, I thought, what the heck, and placed an order just in case something beneficial came of it. I seem to be one of the few who received the email apologizing and offering the 2500 miles and another 2500 miles for making a purchase at the AA mall (even if you return the item). More than fair enough, I thought, for something I knew was not intended. But now there is this storm of indignation about the whole ordeal, and a lot of members seem to what to make this a major issue with whomever will listen. In my opinion, it seems unfortunate to me that our greed has come to this point. Obviously, I'm not blameless in the whole situation as I was one of the folks taking advantage of an offer I knew was an error. Perhaps I'm rambling now because I feel bad for hopping on the bandwagon of folks trying to take advantage of this mistake...but I just don't like where this is going. Am I alone in this?
