Ok... you have to love emails like this. So the deal is that PNC Bank is randomly picking days that you get double points when you use your check card. Ideally, you want to spend the most money on those days because you get more points for free stuff. So yesterday I got an email saying that Saturday was a mystery day! I payed my rent and such on that day so I was pretty excited. But then, apparently when the accountants got in today (of course its a monday) they must have realized that a lot of people spent money on that day so they had to immediately send out the following email:

Dear Robert Mertz,


The email sent on Sunday, October 29, 2006, was not correct. It stated that November 28 was a Mystery Bonus Day. This is incorrect. NOVEMBER 28 WILL NOT BE A MYSTERY BONUS DAY.

There have been three randomly selected Mystery Bonus Days thus far:

October 19
October 23
October 25

The Mystery Bonus Days promotion runs through December 31. Use your enrolled PNC Bank Visa(R) Check Card every day for qualified purchases* to make sure you earned double bonus points. You can track and redeem your points at or by calling 1-800-960-8472.

So if it was an error it apparently was a big one because I can't see a company making themselves look like asses unless it was to save a substantial amount of money.
