Did anyone else lose all their points over the weekend?

After I got the email announcing TRIPLE weekend points late Friday, I checked and had like 16000 points.

When I logged in again on Saturday, my points balance was ZILCH!

I logged on yesterday (8-24-14) and when I came on just now all my days are gone. Please fix this again for me. You can see the sites I was on. Five letter lingo, 3 letter lingo, etc. Plus I posted gas prices. Please fix this for me. It's discouraging as hell.

The bonus was supposed to double points for Friday, Saturday and Sunday on only the first 5 posted prices, for up to a total of 1,000 bonus points per day, 3,000 grand total.

There was some kind of glitch that found what appeared to be no limits on the bonus for some members. I was told it had to do with mobile app users only. Late Saturday afternoon, JT posted in the Bonus Points thread in this forum that they had fixed the glitch and were reversing the mistakenly awarded points.

As I understand the promo, if you posted 5 or more prices on each of the 3 days, you should have ended up with 6,000 points being added to your a/c, not 16,000.

This appears to be a good example of a member who rec'd the extra points innocently, not because they were intending to "exploit" an obvious programing error, as has been improvidently alleged in the bonus points thread.
