His offer is $500 PQD -> 9,700 or $1,000 ->21,800 (total, not incremental)

Book and travel by July 31st

I'm wondering what I did that UA has apparently promo-blacklisted me.

Pretty sure they just block everyone who posts on FT. How else do you get to 300?

honestly they probably realize they don't have to target us. recently i booked a ticket away from UA (on LH stock) and came to regret it as they gave me no leeway whatsoever on some changes I wanted to make. price was cheaper yes, but UA has by far the best customer service i've experienced with airlines, and often bend the rules when it makes sense, the 1k line is just great and has always helped me out with rebookings, IRROPS etc for both me, my spouse, parents and siblings
next time i'll just pay up the few dollars

Interestingly, both Mrs Cricketer and the Cricketer Jr's were targeted with $350 for 6,000 miles and $800 for 19,300 miles.

Didn't expect any of us to be targeted - I'll comfortably hit 1K yet again so it would be silly to target me. Each of them has about $1,500+ of travel booked for this year, though they haven't flown in 9/10 months which might be the trigger.

...i managed to get an offer for the first time. and its good...too easy?

Spend 100, get 2400 miles. Spend 350, get 9900...

I wish I had seen this before booking my older trips. But That's pretty much 10k bonus miles for a roundtrip flight.

It's base fare only (not surprising), and has to be UA or UAx flights (also not surprising); basic economy does not count (mildly surprising).

We should really just have a poll for all of these. "Did you qualify?"
