Post Seat Coupon Challenge ("Earn a free Main Cabin Extra seat coupon")

As foretold by JonNYC and amplified by gleff, seat coupons are here and so are seat coupon challenges. I was targeted for the following promotion. Must register by May 15th and fly two qualifying flights by August 31st to earn one coupon.

Earn a free Main Cabin Extra seat coupon
Register by May 15, 2019
You’ve been exclusively selected to earn 1 free Main Cabin Extra seat coupon after you fly.

Here’s how:
  • Register before you travel and no later than May 15, 2019
  • Complete at least 2 flights on American Airlines or other eligible airlines
  • Once you’ve completed your flights, you’ll earn 1 free Main Cabin Extra seat coupon, valid for 180 days after it shows up in your account
Rules:
Qualification for seat coupon only applies to eligible flights that are both marketed by American and operated by American, American Eagle®, British Airways, Iberia, Finnair or Japan Airlines.

Terms and conditions
Promotion code: S249M
This exclusive offer is only for members who receive an email directly from American Airlines
Travel flown before you register for this promotion isn’t eligible for the seat coupon offer
Once you meet promotion requirements, the seat coupon will be deposited in your account within 24 hours
Seat coupon is valid for 1 seat on 1 flight operated by American Airlines or American Eagle® and must be used for a flight within 180 days from when the coupon appears in your account
You must apply the seat coupon when you pay for your seat; it can’t be applied after or to reservations on hold
Travel must begin on or before the expiration date
Seat coupon is non-transferable, but any passenger booked in the same reservation as the coupon owner can use and redeem the owner’s seat coupon
Seat coupon can be redeemed on aa.com, through our mobile app or by calling AA Reservations and must be redeemed before check-in
Main Cabin Extra seats may not be available on all flights
Can’t be used if booked in Basic Economy
Void if bartered or sold
We may eliminate or restrict seat coupons on certain flights, or make other changes without notice
Use of seat coupons for future American destinations is subject to approval
If a flight is canceled, we’ll try to honor your seat coupon on another flight
We’ll redeposit seat coupons into your account if we’re unable to give you a comparable seat
Check the seats terms and conditions for more details
Did anyone else receive one?

I'm not targeted, but I'm EXP. I checked my mom's account (no status, two upcoming trips, but in 2020), she did not have the offer. I checked a friend's account, who has no status, but six upcoming trips this summer, he also did not have the offer. 0/3

Gold with one trip. Nada other than a 20K bonus for flying to Tokyo from Seattle. Quite strange considering I live on the East Coast.

Got the same offer, based out of Chicago, thought it was odd too.

From the limited number of posts here so far it looks like that if you already have travel booked then you won't get the coupon??
