No, its not my job actually. I have a full time position like I’ve talked about before, and I write this blog for the love of miles & points, and to help readers in a relatively new market to the game, like India, realise the potential of travel with loyalty benefits, and tips and tricks of the game.
Now, from time to time I have giveaways when an arrangement is made with various companies, and I really want all of you to have fun out there with these promos. I’ve had one reader in the past who did not receive something I promised, and I am trying to source the same thing again to be able to send it to him. Another reader, who participated in a recent points giveaway, today sends me an email which reads like this:
It has been a month and no sign of points in my account.
It would be easier/ helpful if you would specify in your give away that it would take over a month to post the points. I have been postponing one of holiday trip for almost 4 weeks now….
That is the email quoted verbatim, and I can’t be very happy about the fact that a reader is not being able to take a vacation which he should have gotten, but at the same time the tone of the email has put me off.
Like I said above, all this is a thankless job really!
