US Bank-Taca/Avianca Lifemiles up to 40K miles

Hi everybody, longtime lurker, first-time poster. I recently received, and was approved for, a 40K mile bonus after first purchase with the Lifemiles card offered by US Bank. Since this is a decent-sized bonus and it's offered by a bank that's not Chase/Citi/B of A/Barclays/Amex, I thought it was worth a mention here. Has anybody else received this? I hadn't flown Taca in years when I received the solicitation.

I looked around a bit and the best non-targeted offer I could find was 20K miles:

Sounds like a great offer! I, too, have only seen a 20K offer for Lifemiles.

Please post a link for the 40K if you have it!

A friend of mine recently got one of these offers. The code was tied to his name. I wish I had some idea of how to get targeted for one of these; I suppose signing up for a LifeMiles account was a good first step just now.

I was targeted for this as well. I'm on my way to research the particulars of applying for a US Bank card now.

Easily changed to English version:

Note: If you get Visa Platinum instead of Visa Signature your bonus goes down.

Got it too and doesn't look targeted: http://www.lifemilesvisa.com/credit/...ard.do?lang=en

Looks like a nice deal-- if you end up getting approved for the Signature Card and not one of the others.

This promotion is valid only for members that get the LifeMiles Visa Signature Card. We will first consider you for the LifeMiles Visa Signature card but if you do not qualify you can still earn LifeMiles! You’ll automatically be considered for the LifeMiles VisaŽ [Platinum] card which earns 15,000 Bonus LifeMiles when the first purchase is made, 3,000 Bonus LifeMiles with your annual credit card renewal and 1 LifeMile for every $1 in net purchases everywhere Visa cards are accepted. If you are not eligible for the LifeMiles Visa [Platinum] card, you will be considered for the LifeMiles VisaŽ Secured card which earns 5,000 Bonus LifeMiles when the first purchase is made and 1 LifeMile for every $1 in net purchases everywhere Visa cards are accepted. The LifeMiles Visa and Secured cards do not earn double miles on Avianca purchases or an additional 20,000 Bonus LifeMiles after making $3,000 in net purchases within 120 days of account opening. The Secured card does not earn Annual Renewal Bonus LifeMiles. The Secured card requires a minimum deposit of $300 provided by the cardmember that will be held in a security deposit account. Full details of the Secured card will be provided upon qualified status.

Do they have an award chart to see what you can do with those 40k miles? I tried looking around at lifemiles.com but couldn't find it.

U.S. Bank Avianca LifeMiles CC 46.000 miles

Will they apply the same policy - no recent applications in the last 6 months for this card? I'd assume so?!
