My offer was to turn the $ into travel credit, which I can't redeem it for nearly a year, if I read it correctly. My bonus was 10%. No biting here.

I was offered a 50% bonus on my $360 wallet funds if I take the certificate I can't use for a year. I have QR and AFKL vouchers that would be take priority once it's safer to travel, so I think I will take AS up on its offer.

Its a targeted offer, that went to a relatively small audience via email.

I've got a $500 wallet balance but haven't received an email. I wish I could use it to pay for my lounge membership.

... and I was about to ask how, in the UK I could suddenly build a wallet balance, to take advantage of this!

I got an offer to convert at 40 miles per dollar. Not unattractive, but would like it better if it were EQM.

Received identical offer that Mauibaby received. Same amount of wallet funds. There is an option to choose a percentage of "cash out" on this. If not confident with 100% , may choose a percentage, ie; 50% , of wallet funds to miles.

I got the offer to exchange for a Credit Certificate with 50% more value (like nerdbirdsjc), good only between July 1 '21-22 for travel through May 27 '23. Giving it serious thought... Based on what Missy said, I'm guessing they are testing to see which offers get the most takers before they offer something to a broader set of jetters.

What is the difference between a credit certificate and wallet funds?

I see I can spend wallet funds immediately, but the credit certificate cannot be spent until July 1, 2021 and expires a year later.
