    My second 2500 miles finally posted from the August 10 Verizon 83,000 mile "error" to my AA account. I still need to mail back both of the bricks that I had purchased. I guess 5000 AA miles for a few e-mails is not too bad, although the 83000+ would've been a bit nicer!

    You can't really complain when you get a decent reward from something you knew damn well was not legit to being with...my opinion at least. I think everyone should be happy with that.

    Why would anyone think the 83,000 mile offer was not legit? The shopping mall posted the offer and people bought items based on it? I don't see anything wrong with that!

    I got my 2500. Unfortunately my 3mm Platinum status was only a pipe dream, and all 40 of my orders were canceled.

    On the bright side, I didn't have to send anything back!

    Just got my second 2500 miles yesterday. Not bad for such a potential mess.

    I hadn't gotten the initial response from them so I waited out the 45 days and then questioned the cartel about where my miles were. They sent along the form response about how it was an obvious error and that it was known about, that I'd get 2500 miles + 2500 after a purchase before 10/31. I responded that I bought those headphones since the deal looked good, that I would have purchased different headphones if the bonus offer were the same as others. They responded with the same message as before. Conspiracy theorists might say that they and Verizon had a plan to funnel business to Verizon...is a complaint to the BBB in order?

    And no, I'm not looking for blood like those over on FT. It's just all very fishy how only the Verizon products were incorrectly labeled.

    Do you have cartel contact info to contact regarding missing miles? Thanks

    Did you need to mail back the purchased items? When I asked about a refund they said to mail the items back which I did. I am still waiting for the refund for the items + shipping.

    Yup, that's exactly what I did and promptly got a check in the mail a few weeks later.

    I never got the emails and have been busy traveling: Can somebody please tell me where to write for the first 2500 miles? I guess we have given up on anything approaching 80K. :)

    Just go to the AA eShopping portal and at the bottom there is a contact us tab. You really waited a long time to follow up on this! I hope they give you the miles...

    Anything useful (I know that's relative) that I could buy for my second batch of 2500?

    Just buy some free after rebate software from newegg. If you don't have an account with them you can even earn $10 by using the coupon NEWCUSTOMER10.

    You can find a Groupon that interests you or a Restaurant.com certificate.
