Some readers have noted that the miles they purchased and/or transferred today are not showing up in their accounts. Icelandair is aware of this problem (it’s tied in with the 10-day hold that was mistakenly reinstated). They are working on fixing it as we speak.
In the meantime, Icelandair has requested that people hold off on purchases and transfers until they fix the underlying issue (they hope by tomorrow). If you’ve purchased or transferred, don’t worry – you will not be charged if the transaction did not go through.
I know this is frustrating, but I promise – they have been incredibly swamped while, by all accounts, being incredibly helpful to those who have called.
The 20% transfer/purchase bonus deal goes through September 28th – don’t worry you have time.
I’ll post when they give me an update. Feel free to post questions, etc, in comments or email me (I’m trying to answer all the questions that are coming in via comments and email — it’s been crazy, but I promise I’m getting to everything as soon as I can). Somehow I feel personally responsible for this offer :)
