Ameritrade special offer: extra 10k bonus

Happened to be looking at the Ameritrade offers and happened to notice what they're offering for HP for July and August:
http://www.ameritrade.com/americawest
"Limited time only! Open your account in July or August and earn 10,000 additional bonus miles!"

They don't seem to discuss T&C much (except for one line: "Special bonus miles will appear in the FlightFund account approximately 6 weeks from initial funding."), but if true, this would be 13k miles to deposit $1k, 18k miles to deposit $5k, and 35k miles to deposit $50k. Anyone have any experience with getting the extra 10k bonus miles?

Anyone have experience opening a second Ameritrade account for miles not with the same airline (and account is still open)? I opened an ameritrade account for delta miles in 02 and still have the account; do you think I could get these miles for opening a second account? The fine print wording is a little vague. Thx.

Be sure to read the fine print ... accounts with balances below $2000 are subject to a "quarterly $15 maintenance fee."

Just got my 10K bonus miles today. Only deposited $1k, and got the 1,500 ordinary miles so far per terms/conditions. Will deposit another $1k before 9/30 to avoid any fees.

Cool, got my first 4k miles today after only 8 days since my partial asset transfer went through. krj9999, how long was it between the time you got your 1.5k and the 10k?

Probably was about 7-10 days between the 1.5k and 10k postings.
