Hi - I been eyeing the iPhone 5S offered in the latest Populr catalog for several weeks and waiting for my points to reach 205,000 points. So on Friday I bought the last few thousand points needed, saw it on the website but the points had not been cleared nor applied to the website yet. Ok I checked back Saturday and the points still had not been applied. Checked Sunday yesterday and yeah! Points applied. I went into the populr website to finally purchase it....only to find that the iPhone 5s was nowhere to be found. Only saw an older iPhone5 "bundle" for over 300k points.
Called the 877-292-7347 help number and they tell me "without a item number they can't look the product up." I threw mine away a few weeks ago thinking that the website was good enough. Does anyone happen to have the old Populr paper catalog so that I use it to call in an order perhaps?
Thanks a million!

Thanks ssindc. I tried the link and got the session timeout error. Then stuck and can't get past the account login screen...sometimes takes the acct # and prompts for my last name (which then errors out afterwards), or doesn't take my acct # anyways and dumps me into the contact customer svc screen.
any ideas? or if you see the iphone 5s can you give me the Item Code and i'll tell the svc rep.
Thanks to everyone so far. It seems like folks have confirmed that the 5S at 205,000 points is no longer showing on the website ... and not just for me. I guess I'll just have to wait it out and see when it reappears again...the iPhone5 has gotta go old and drop off their offerings at some point soon.
