Don't forget to use your Funcash by today 12/31

Just a reminder to anyone who still has funcash left to not forget to use it by midnight tonight.

Even though I've been cycling memberships for eight years, I didn't realize that FC expired, FOR GOOD, on 12/31 of a given year. I just assumed that you couldn't use it until the next redemption period.

So, turns out I lost $115 in FC. Ah well.

Don't suppose anyone has had luck requesting reinstatement?

I got them to put back $5 last year that I "lost" due to the way CH handles FC when placing a FC order. I attempted to use it the last day but it was unavailable due to a previous FC order. It was put back in a "good will" gesture. It never hurts to ask. Worse case scenario is they will not reinstate any of it so you really don't have anything to lose by asking.

I tried today, and was quickly and firmly shot down by a CSR. So much for that account, and I'll be more careful next time.

That really sucks. Well, you aren't alone. I forgot about the 12/31 rule and didn't use mine either. But I only had like $20... Well, the "value" of the $115 wasn't that much, anyway. Think of it as five $22.99 enrollment titles that you could have had for free. And since the net cost of enrollment titles is under five bucks usually, you really only lost $25 in actual money. That doesn't sound as bad...

Couldn't hurt to try again a few more times.

Different CSR's = different results. I got a CSR to let me combine funcash from different accounts a while back.
