Avios emailsBack to Forum
Yesterday I received 2 emails from avios.
Both said similar things – namely that I had successfully converted other currencies into avios.
These currencies were Absa Cash Rewards and UCount Rewards.
Today I received an email saying they had been sent in error and were intended for South African members of Avios.
I wonder how many of them there are?26 Apr 2017
I suppose they didn’t want to send a third email saying the first two were in error – tough on those who don’t follow avios on Twitter, though
@Eddie_Plum We're sorry for the emails about UCount and Absa. We sent these in error. No data was shared. Sorry if this caused concern. CB
