Thread Details

I'm sure this is going to get major thumbs down but I was compelled to post this as I would have missed it completely. I recieved no email about it and they only just appeared today. They also expire Dec 26th. They aren't "surprise points" and there is no explanation for them in my account. But I log in and there are 15,000 mysterious points in addition to my regular balance. YMMV

Sure enough man, had $15 in my account. Thank you very much. Wouldn't have known if it wasn't for this post.

I had 10.00 surprise points that suddenly appeared during checkout. Previous to checkout I had the normal points and 4.00 surprise points for clothing items.

Bizarre promotion... no email notification, no way to see it unless you go all the way to checkout.... it's sort of counterproductive to how promotions are supposed to work.

I've made plenty of purchases lately. But this isn't attached to them... at least not overtly. I've no knowledge of any promotions where secret unannounced points are available for just a couple days.

Anyway I'm glad some people also have it.

That would make sense then. They had that $15 back on $50 (or $75) promo going, on, I think? It's just sort of a delayed payout then.

That $15 went into accounts on the 21st so that's probably what it was

Thanks for the heads up - had $16 in surprise points. Random, but I'll take it!

Edited to add - clicked on "learn more" and see that there are requirements and exclusions.
