promotional spam of the moment

Dear b1-66er,

It's been almost a year since you signed up for Road Rewards. Feels like it was yesterday,doesn't it? Besides being your one-year anniversary, the end of your first year also means that your Destination Points will expire. Even though your membership is always valid, the points you accumulate during each year, or 12-month period, expire at the end of each period.

Don't worry, there's still plenty of time to reward yourself. All you need to do is book 6 more trips (one-way) before 5/10/2013, to earn your next reward.

It's easy. Besides, you've come too far to let it go to waste.

See you on the road,

Your Friends at Greyhound


sounds easy enough to me.
