I think some of it has to do with getting people in the habit of reading the emails. If they can show a boost in email readership then they can charge more for the ad space on them. I read every single US email just in case there's a good promo buried in one.

It should be good for ALL travel booked and flown within that period. Last year they had the promo a little earlier in the year and I racked up about 60k EQM all told. Could have done more if I'd tried
