    I guess someone needs to ask, and I for one have no clue.

    There are a mass of new threads here from LoyaltyMatch - who are what is he or them?

  2. A quick search brought me to this video. It pretty much explains what they do towards the ends.

    If they are still in Beta, they must be copying Google. I recall reading a thread about them back in 2008 or 2009 on some other frequent traveler site (who's name currently escapes me) that debated whether this service or use of it is in violation of the T&Cs of most loyalty programs.

    That has to be an old video when the guy said it's so cheap to buy a ticket - so not the case these days.

    I'd be leary of the transfer, how does the loyaltymatch program ensure the product is actually purchased and sent to the person? You have to send the paypal money first and can so easily lose out on this deal.

    Well seeing some called LoyaltyMatch ran around here and started a page full of threads hyping their stuff and seems rather disinclined to tell me themselves, who started this thread WHAT they are and HOW it works.

    Something smells in Denmark to me.

    You realize its a weekend and this is in beta, right? You're a bit impatient to be calling anything foul, IMO, especially in a vendor area where the vendor has posted threads (may not make sense to us, but they've posted information). Take a deep breath and give them a chance to get in here -- they are as new to the software and this particular community, as any of us.

    Have a look at the user account LoyaltyMatch. It's of "type" News Feed. In other words, TPTB picked the Loyalty Match blog as a source for automatically generated posts. I believe there is a post from Randy somewhere that explains that the selection of forums in ConcourseZ is fairly random and not final (my recollection of what I think read, so could be wrong).

    That's so cool. I never knew about this. I wonder if this is in other parts of the world other than the US.

    This is a classic example of a bad use of 2 dot 0 tools. These Loyalty match guys aren't even monitoring a channel to which they are posting. It's a pure one-way communication. I wonder how MilePoint was pitched to them and how much it is costing them to not have full duplex communication with their target audience.
