So I got an offer (that I can refuse): Try AOL 9.0 blah blah blah and get a free 3-day, 2-night "getaway" at a Fairfield Inn by Marriott. Right-o. I think I can see a few problems with this:
- It's not really 3 days, it's 2 nights. Nobody stays in the hotel during the day.
- The closest Fairfield Inns to me are... over 2,000 miles away. No, it doesn't include airfare.
- This presumes that they expect me to at least try AOL, and they're not indicating that they'll pay my usual (very reasonable, I might add) hourly rate for putting up with things that suck horribly.
So. All AOL needs to do is throw in airfare and a steamer trunk full of cash, and... I'll think about it.
