Bloomingdale's Accidentally Gave Shoppers Up to $25,000 in Store Credit
Some Bloomingdale’s Loyallists, aka the department store's loyalty program shoppers, got a major surprise in their inbox when a computer glitch gave them thousands of dollars of store credit. BuzzFeed reports that emails to shoppers seemed to have accidentally added dollar signs to their Loyallist points. For example, 5,000 points usually gets you a $25 gift card. But shoppers were instead informed they had $5,000 in store credit. So of course people spent that money.
