point credit to your account in "celebration of the newly designed Reward Zone website, which launched 9 days ago."
For how I got the deal... I called into the Premier Silver people at 1-866-797-7367 because their website was advertising that I could get a $100.00 dollar gift certificate for having over 5,000 points banked. However, the redemption page only displayed $95 and wanted to give them the feedback to not advertise it if I couldn't get it.
The customer service rep asked me how I was enjoying Premier Silver status and I gave him my thoughts and he straight out offered the 1,000 points ($20 worth of points!) because of the new website.
I'm not entirely sure if this is ONLY for Premier Silver members or if regular members may only get 500 points but it seems like it's worth a shot at calling!

*TO CLARIFY* My use of the word "advertisement" may have caused a problem... apologies if so. I've got 5,110 points banked... however, the most you can redeem at one time is 4,750... the newly designed website keeps telling me how much I can get... not a general offer for something, but a "user targeted" message so to speak.
Hope everyone is able to get the free points too!
