Refer Yourself for 1,000 Points?

By referring myself does it mean I can just click “DO IT WITH A FRIEND” and enter my own email address for both sender and recipient? Can the system record the sender correctly even though my address is not linked to an account yet? Thank you.


Has anyone who opened a new account in response to this promotion received their miles?!
