Seems like a snail mail version of the promotion that some received earlier via email.

Didn't qualify then, don't qualify now either.

[Targeted] Purchase/travel major $$$ ticket by 15 Nov 2017 and earn bonus miles

Nothing for me or my zero-status wife or our zero-status status child.

(To be clear, spouse and kid have the highest status possible with me.)

It is. Don't worry, if you had received an offer as a 1K it would be for spending something like $10,000 by November.

I just got the following:

Spend $1,000->5k bonus RDM; spend $1,900->26,500k additional bonus RDM

Interesting, although I don't think I've got enough travel to make the $1.9K

No snail mail for me, but I tried the link and got (xxx added for privacy):

"
This is the offer you’ve been waiting for. Simply make United your airline of choice when you’re on the go and rack up thousands of bonus award miles.

All you have to do is register for this offer and travel on qualifying flights through November 15, 2017. Take advantage of this fantastic offer today.

Fly your way to
183,xxx
bonus award miles
Spend
4,xxx
Arrow down
Earn
38,xxx
bonus award miles
Spend a total of
9,xxx
Arrow down
Earn
145,xxx

If the promotion ran till mid December they might have got a $4-6k spend on a NYC-SIN return from me, but since I already hit 1K I will probably try and go SQ.

Nothing for me. Kettle.

Could it be targeted based on area of residence?

Bolding mine: I don't think so as I live one mile door to door from goalie-parents (we share the same zip code) and neither goalie-dad (gold) or goalie-mom (plebe) received anything in the mail and the link doesn't work for either of them
