Talking New promotion - Mile Play -- targeted book/travel X trips by 12 Jan 2018, get Y miles

Received an email from United today with a new promotion, "Mile Play."

"Book and take a trip in United Economy® 1 time by January 12, 2018 to get 11,000 bonus award miles." The fare minimum is $275. Anyone receiving this compelling offer?

Thanks for posting, but this is what I got. It's the thanks I get for booking so many trips on United.

Thanks for your interest

As usual, no love for me either. I don’t think I’ve been eligible for a targeted offer since the merger.

Mine is 1 premium cabin flight by Jan 12 in return for 68,000 miles. I do plan on booking a ski trip around new years, and I would book 1st for this many miles, but the minimum price for me is $1,700, so I doubt I'll spend that much. but it's tempting.

just checked and I may be able to buy an expensive enough ticket to Sun Valley to spend $1,700. It would be about double what I'd spend otherwise, but $850 for 68,000 miles isn't too bad a rate, 1.25 cents per mile.

Check a bag online 1 time by January 12, 2018 to get 500 bonus award miles.
i wasn’t planning on checking a bag on an upcoming vacation, but maybe i’ll check a small cooler of beer for the beach now?

I'm not targeted.. a shame too since I might actually be about to book $3k of UA tickets this month.
