That's not the reason I offered. I have BAF points that I haven't used and won't use. I hate to see them wasted. I really don't like the BAF program this year. Why is it that the invite is only good for one 50% off ticket. Last year each invite was good up to a multi day ticket of 4 days (I think). It was up to the person redeeming to decide how many days to use the invite for based on their needs.

Yeah I don't like that change either.

We should all meet up for some skiing and drink a toast to our generous benefactor.

Wait, what? Gave my buddy a BAF a few weeks ago and he was able to use it for two days (I got docked two BAF points)

This is what I thought, too. Here's what it says on the BAF invite once it is received by the redeemer: (RED bolded highlight by me.)

Quote:
SIERRA LADY wants to share an awesome deal with you - Discounted Mammoth lift tickets! You can use this invite for a one, two or three day lift ticket.
• Ticket must be used on consecutive days.
A BAF point will be deducted from the pass holder for each day redeemed.
• Non-transferable. Not refundable.
• Must purchase at least one day in advance.
• Must select date at time of purchase and date may not be changed.
Buying this Lift ticket is easy, just redeem my ticket, following the easy directions and pat yourself on the back for having a friend who's well connected, like SIERRA LADY at ______@gmail.com.

So you still have a limited number of "days" to give away. You could give away all your days just using two invites rather than 5. I guess it just makes it a bit easier for the recipient.

Yes, I just looked at my BAF. I sent 3 seperate invites out to the same person to use. One of the three invites was used and 3 BAF points deducted from my pass. Which is what I expected to be used. I am assuming that the person used 3 days from one invite.

So you do not have to send a seperate invite out for each day that a person wants to use. They purchase the amount of days they want and the BAF points are deducted for each day from your pass.

I have no problem with this as long as I know how many a person plans on using so that I don't promise BAF discount to someone and then they try and use them and can't because someone else did.

^ That is what I am concerned about now and feel badly because one of my friends is going to get stiffed! I sent three separate invites to one person and two to another. They are both going to be here next week for multiple days so the first person to redeem their invite is going to get the most days. :!:

I don't think the creators of this revised system thought this out! :fubar:
