    I've even had a few through the years ask me for enough points to buy $30 of Bitcoin as that's what they make in a month (not sure if it's true or not).

    You'll still get perks but again, no, I don't think they expected so many to jump on board right from the start
    We can agree to disagree it's been down for a year you had to know all people that were holding on to 1000's of points would use them as soon as the store opened up. I no you have nothing to do with it but it was pretty obvious this would happen.

    Nothing to defend here

    People badmouthing free rooms? Yet you can’t even use your points now

    Funny how people get possessive.

    It’s like a girl stops giving out but you still think she is ok.

    If I can recall correctly when I enrolled at SBR there was a t-shirt,pen, coffee mug and $50.00 cash perk. I was fortunate to be invited and attend three different bashes on their company dime. I received many gift cards which I used as birthday,wedding and even baby shower party gifts over the years. Whatever the future holds at sbr I will always be thankful for this site.

    Most of us never pretended to be big shots, you're just talking about the loud few. And I don't see what's ridiculous about wanting SBR to honor their promises to us, call it a matter of principle if you wish

    so you would be OK if you had $500 worth of credit card rewards... that turned into $250, and then when you went to spend the 250 you only got 100?

    fair is fair, whether it's $5, $500, or $5 million

    people are only "crying" because after 9 months, the store reopened, only to be more irritating than when it was closed

    Guess we’ll have to wait another year before the store opens again.

    As glad as I am that the store reopened, it really jinxed me I fear! Decided to start betting in the SBR Book again (now that points clearly have value once more), and I've lost like one third or close of my total points in two days (would have been even worse if I didn't get a miracle win in the Arizona vs Las Vegas game on the Over 51.5). But that's gambling as they say!

    Do we have any updates when will we get the purchased gift cards? It is already past the "middle of the month". And by the way, sportsbook is not working, the "sign in" button is inactive.

    Communication works. It stops people from endless guessing. Also, goes a long way toward people not getting pissed off.

    It takes all of 10 seconds to update everyone. Try it.

    The order list was sent to our accounts team at the end of last week for fulfilment. May take a few business days to process, we will follow up with email confirmation when gift cards are sent out.

    Once there is a confirmed date for items being back in stock - I will update this thread.

    Also, issue with the sportsbook login has been reported - devs are looking into that.

    Thanks guys.

    that's debatable... store couldn't even fulfill a day worth of orders without cancelling them and closing again, and just the main contest is giving out another 50,000 points/week that might never be usable
