Oliver just sent me an email containing a screen capture on the W Hotel online store. The message reads:
Thank you for shopping W Hotels The Store
Your order has been placed
Your confirmation number is XDEBTF
You will receive a confirmation number soon.
I’ll be very curious to see if this works out, maybe we can exploit this loophole in their online ordering system to our advantage. Most US websites use the same standard system, leaving every country in the world in the pull-down menu, never expecting someone outside the country to try and use it. Countless times I’ve gone all the way to confirming the order to find the last button doesn’t work.
Maybe someone didn’t deactivate the button.
Maybe they just started shipping internationally. Fingers crossed…
