How will I receive an Amazon gift card for using Firefox to book a hotel on booking.com?

Posted

In late December, on my Firefox home page, there was a promotion with a link in the footer, indicating that I would receive a $20 Amazon gift card for using booking.com and Firefox to reserve a hotel room.

I clicked that link, booked my stay, received a confirmation that clearly showed my reservation had been booked using Firefox, and have completed my hotel stay.

In contacting booking.com to inquire when and how I would receive my Amazon gift card, they indicated that they have no relationship with Firefox and agreed to no such promotion.

What is going on here? Was this a scam? Who is responsible in this scenario? I would not have used booking.com otherwise. And am now seriously questioning the integrity of Firefox, unless someone makes good on this offer.

Mozilla is the company as Firefox is the name of the web browsers that Mozilla makes for desktop Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile versions for Android and iOS.

The Booking site did have a promotion in December with some restrictions https://i.imgur.com/JK0VrHW.png
