You can check availability on United's website and call in to book. Yes you can book 2 persons at once.

no, they're speculating based on time passed since last promotion.

Just speculating here, and I hope I'm wrong, but I feel like AX has tended to give bonuses since their high fee cards made MRs relatively less valuable so the bonuses are like an enticement to keep us in the game. With the new amex everday cards, it would seem to me that there is no need for that, particularly with the (likely) millions of people that will join the MR world now.

Millions, you say? Hmm, got me thinking. Over time, definitely. The lower income level CC market is pretty well dominated by Visa and MasterCard. This is a brand new offering and supplemented with a big ad campaign. My guess is, with the economy, improving the way it is, exmike may be right...

I can't see most average credit card users taking advantage of transfer bonuses, or even getting that many MR. Most probably waste it on statement credits...

I agree. It sure looks like several airlines have increased the intervals between bonuses over the last year or two; it would be a pleasant surprise if something were to be announced in April (ie in a few hours).

I am hoping for 30% BA, but not expecting anything for a while.
