Couldn't get Gears 3 skins to unlock (on the 25th or 26th)

I was told through a support email that "I should post on the forum for 'further assistance' "  this seems like a waste of time, but so I can say I did it, here was my original email:

Gears of war 3 had a promotion going on that if you played online between Sept. 20 - 26 you'd get 2 unlockable game gun skins... I played on xbox live on the 25th and the 26th and did not get the unlockables... what gives... I rushed buying the game to get these. I thought maybe I get them unlocked today , but nope... so I'm a bit upset. Why do I NOT have them?
