Talking May 2018 Mile Play promo -- targeted book/travel X trips by 13 May, get Y miles, ....

Received new email offer today: "Book and take a trip in a premium cabin 2 times by May 13, 2018 to get 55,000 bonus award miles." Each trip must be a min of $700. All travel for Trip must be in Business or First class (fare classes: A, C, D, F, J, P and Z).

Offer back in January was measly compared to this one...and did not complete - take 1 premium cabin trip and get 6,800 bonus award miles (over $600).

I'm guessing a moderator will move this to a new thread, but my offer for this latest promotion is "Book and take a trip 1 time by May 13, 2018 to get 8,600 bonus award miles." Minimum fare is $275. I didn't get an email about it (yet), but just went to the website to see if I was eligible. I'm not sure I'll complete this one...

My March offer: 4 premium trips >$350 = 26,000 (which I completed, with incremental spend ~$350).
My May offer: 4 premium trips >$700 = 8,400! I won't be pursuing this one...

I got:

- Book and Take a Flight in a Premium Cabin: 1,000 Miles
- Shop Through Mileage Plus Shopping: 400 Miles
- Complete Both Activities: 1,900 Miles

Glad to get a free 400 miles, doubt I'll book the required $550 minimum Premium Cabin flight.

I got 3 trips (min $200 each) for 3400 miles.

Slightly annoying that I have two possibly qualifying trips coming up (assuming work travel gets confirmed), but two more trips are already booked (and thus outside the qualifying range for this promotion).

Everyone is getting such interesting offers. Meanwhile I get "Check one bag online one time" for 250.

1 trip for 8700 miles. Does a re-issue of an existing ticket count? I've just come back to UA from AA this year with a match and on AA a re-issue(Same day change, SWU clearing) would count for promotions as If booked fresh.

My best offer ever. $0 for 0 miles. Now just have to wait 6-8 weeks. kidding....got the thanks for trying message.

Family member got the "pay for luggage" bonus of 200 miles along with 1,000 miles for $250 ticket.. He is a silver so already gets 1st bag free. Unsure why UA is barking up that tree about bonus miles for paid luggage.

So all family members registered at my address did not qualify, but other family members (not my address) qualified. Just trying to piece it what this latest round is trying to do.
