Interesting Interpretation and Speculation….or not

This may mean absolutely nothing, but since so many of us are holding our collective breath waiting for any hint on whether or not there will be a 2012 US Airways Grand Slam, I thought this was interesting reading material on a Friday night.

Tonight I saw a tweet from Points to Point B to US Airways inquiring about a possible Grand Slam this year.  Many of us have been expressing our desire for this promotion to US Airways via Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.  So far none of the responses I have seen have been a “no”, but most are pretty vague, and just encourage us to keep checking back for any possible promotions.

However, this one could be interpreted a bit differently.  Or not.  You decide.

  1. Joe, you are totally right. GS has been over since November and I haven’t had a thing to talk about since then. 😉 Honestly, it will stink if there is no GS 2012, but there are plenty of other things in the miles and points world to keep me busy. That said, I hope for all of us that it does return!

    • @Stacey, you are probably right, though seeing at least a semi-official statement from US Airways (as much as social media is official…) that had the phrase” The Grand Slam 2012 Promotion” in it was enough to bring some hope. 😉

  2. Also, the work “still” gets my hopes up. Because it could possibly imply that they still don’t have info about THE Grand Slam, but they will?

  3. Putting a lot of weight into subtle grammatical choices by Social Media accounts is, well, one way to pass the time on a Friday. I’ll drink instead. 😉

    • @Val, I agree. Much better to have high hopes….well, most of the time.
      @Seth, who said they were mutually exclusive? Though my drug of choice for the evening is brownie. Mmmmmmm. 😉

  4. It is not just the miles… it is so much fun. I thought I was going to be prescribed an anti-psychotic med for a all the crazy stuff I did.

  5. I’m sorry but how does “we don’t have any information at this time” translate to “there is no promotion?”

    Did you check FT/MP to see the earliest thread create dates from 2011?

    Or just base today’s blog on someone else’s tweet and the most sensational interpretation of that?

  6. @Jorge, it really is fun. Couldn’t agree more…though I do want the miles, too. 😉
    @Gary, precisely!
    @Ram, you, me, and all of our friends are wanting that same thing.
    @mrpickles, mmmmmm
    @AK, ha ha!
    @Deirde, you should have and hopefully you will get your chance!
    @Turtles, huh? I don’t think their tweet translates to there is no promotion. In fact, I think it leans slightly the other way. Not sure this is at all sensational. In fact I purposefully left GS out of the post title to avoid building any hype one way or the other. Here is a more detailed post on when the GS started last year on thoughts on if it is returning.

  7. MP: I am sitting on 130000 US Airways mile and I haven’t booked anything waiting for the GS. Should I keep waiting or book the flights?
