Yeah; if it was a bit longer or given more in advance... I'd actually consider it for a P fare to go on vacation. I found 1 or 2 itins that would net 40k PQMs and ~115k RDMs. Not too shabby.

Of course I didn't get an email, found out via FT.

Mine is =

Up to 160,000 award miles

$5,000 PQD = 40,000 award bonus miles
$6,500 PQD = 55,000 award miles
$7,500 PQD = 65,000 award miles

Very good deal since I have to earn the PDQs to retain status

I agree. It's too bad for me, already spent "serious $$$."
Gee UA, what are you gonna do for me?

I didn't get the email, but I am targeted. I've already booked most of my travel until Labor Day unfortunately, and the offer isn't all that impressive anyway.

20,000 @ $2,500
25,000 @ $3,000
30,000 @ $3,500

I haven't flown a flight this year that has cost less than $3,500 so i'm pretty surprised by this offer. Platinum right now and nearly 1K.

Up to 300k

I am a returning 1k who had defected to AA and is in the middle of a challenge. I received the following offer:

$3,000 = 75,000 RDM
$5,500 = 100,000 RDM
$8,000 = 125,000 RDM

Wow. My offer was:

$4K --> 10K miles
$5K --> additional 15K miles
$6K --> additional 20K miles

So 45,000 miles if I spend another $6K. Since I've already got 95K PQM and $11K PQD ticketed or flown, this is actually a pretty poor offer. I'll sign up, but there's definitely no incentive here.

Int'l 1K, not eligible.

Too bad for me- I would easily spend $5K+ in a couple of monts. Any UA biz class that I purchase is $5K. Would've been nice to do a couple of those for 125,000 RDM + 110,000 for the actual flights!

UA Silver earned so far this year, no prior/lapsed UA Elite status.

Not eligible.
