My first checkin was on Dec 5 according to this thread.
Haven't yet received any of mine either, and I think I never got any email confirmations after the first 2 or 3 check-ins.
Does anyone know how if I can make the checkins private on Facebook but still earn the points? I'd hate for my boss to think I'm at Newark Airport every day when I should be workin'!
You could use Foursquare to check-in. I use it for all my "point gathering".
I appreciate the suggestions but I really don't want to sign up for yet another social media site. Any idea if can be done with just Facebook?
me too .... I like foursquare. Very useful when I travel.
I believe it can be done using any of Topguest checkin tools.
Step 1: Defriend boss. Good idea for lots of other reasons too.
You can set privacy settings whenever you make a post on facebook -- but if you don't let anyone see, then Topguest might not see either. Best to just exclude the people you don't want knowing.
It's really not very "social media"-ish and requires very little information to sign up. Basically, an email address. I basically have that FS account solely for the purpose of Topguest and nothing else. I definitely don't want to intermingle this stuff into my FB account.
Nevermind! It was a dining check-in bonus that I got, not an airport check-in bonus. Oh well.
Good advice....thanks everyone.
Yes, use Facebook touch
I use this with my laptop logins.
I just got United miles from December:
Dec. 23, 2011TOPGUEST BONUS MILES 700
Dec. 27, 2011TOPGUEST BONUS MILES 150
Dec. 28, 2011TOPGUEST BONUS MILES 50
Dec. 30, 2011TOPGUEST BONUS MILES 50
Yes. We are finally getting miles. Still nothing from Continental.
I just got mine deposited in UA, in one giant batch.
Yup - me too (in UA MP). Backdated to three batches in December with miles for a total of 11 check-ins. This was from ~19 Dec to end of month. Sounds about right.
Saw three batches come in as well - one big catchup dated Dec 23 and then a couple of other single entries. Still way more than I got confirm emails for, but I'll take it.
I got 900 all up in the same format.
nice, I had 300 post last night, hoping the missing 1,050 will be in the next batch(s)!
Hopefully, they'll start posting on a regular basis from now on
I just got 50 miles for feb 1st, and two days in January. I checked in a lot more than that in January, but it sure looks like this promotion is starting to flow.
Hmm. Nothing yet on my account. I'll call in today. I'm also missing the 2500 RDM bonus, and the DEQM bonus for LAX-ORD-LAX.
Is it just me, or are the emails confirming the checkin and offering special mileage earning deals with certain airport merchants now arrive with several hours delay? Kind of defeats the purpose as the traveler would likely not be anywhere near the airport anymore (if they ever were).
I seem to get my emails anywhere from instantly to about 12 hours later. I would understand if different properties have different delays, but this variation comes when checking in to the same two places every day. At this point, none of the offers have been useful to me, but I can see how the delay could be a problem with a property specific offer. For example, I usually get a bonus miles offer for a car rental at the airport I check in to. If I were really renting a car, that offer would be useless 6 hours later as I would already be far away.
I just take the delays and lack of useful offers with a grain of salt though, since they are still giving me 50 miles or points a day just for pushing a couple of buttons on my phone. It only takes a couple of seconds and when it comes to accruing miles and points, it's pretty hard to beat free.
Can't do this for various reasons, but one of the things I do is that my foursquare checkins don't feed to either Twitter or Facebook. It's an island unto itself with significantly different friends.
Do you want to be friends with my foursquare account? I promise that I will only broadcast travel related crap.
