August 2018 Mile Play promo -

Is there a new thread for the August 2018 Mile Play promo (if so, can a mod merge this into that thread)? I haven't received an email about it, but I just checked the link today and found my current offer:

Book and take a trip 1 time by August 12, 2018 to get 20,000 bonus award miles. Each purchased fare must be a minimum of $500 to qualify.

For reference, my previous offers were as follows (both of which I completed):
* March promo: Book and take a trip 2 times by March 11, 2018 to get 21,000 bonus award miles. Minimum fare $400.
* May promo: Book and take a trip 1 time by May 13, 2018 to get 8,600 bonus award miles. Minimum fare $275.

4 Premium Cabin trips, $800 each, for 20K miles.

I admire their persistence in continuing to waste my time. I've never flown four paid premium cabin trips in a year, let alone paid and flown within 46 days.

Wow, and I thought my offer was bad at 1 trip for 6,000 miles. That is dreadful at $2k min per trip!

I should have added the dollar requirement per trip; $200 each. I will likely hit it, but what an insult.

Take 2 trips ($225 each) for 2,500 miles.

I'll make it, but only because I haven't booked trips for August yet.

Take 2 trips ($225 each) for 18,000 miles.

No trips planned (beyond what I have already booked on AS), unfortunately.

And for the wife:

Thanks for your interest

Unfortunately, the account number you entered is not eligible for this offer.
It's strange that she has never even once been eligible for one of these offers.

Buy economy plus for 800 miles

Book and take 1 trip by Aug 12 for 2500 miles. (min $300) I already have Jul and Aug booked out and 2500 isn't worth chasing.
