My wife had an offer, I didn't; we have a DPO address (counts as foreign address for PQ purposes, no PQD required). Still, your address in Canada may have something to do with.

For us, I think it's that she flies United 2-3 times/yr, I haven't flown them since summer 2016.

Will probably require a new PNR, otherwise you're just changing an existing reservation.

While happy to be eligible again, I continue to be stumped by United's rationale for these. Bonus miles aren't high enough to sway any purchase decisions...so this is just an extra bump if I happen to hit the requirements organically.
Similar here.

4 trips,
275 per trip,
3,300 miles.

I can get the same amount of miles for <$50 with hertz rentals.

I guess I don't understand how you are making that point by telling us how many points you could buy for those fares. It's a simple bonus. We all have out own rough value of 2500 points - for me it would be maybe $50. I'd gladly take those $50 as a bonus for travel I would buy anyway, but I wouldn't spend any amount of money to book an extra (unnecessary) trip or book a less convenient flight or book a fare significantly more expensive than offered by a competitor...

My offer (1 trip, $200, 8k points) is a lot more attractive, perhaps because I ignored the previous MilePlay offer. Unfortunately I don't currently have any plans for air travel during the promo period, but if something comes up, I will factor it into my choice of carriers.

I would like to thank the OP ( jsloan ) for informing me of this promotion.

2 trips, 28,000 bonus miles, minimum $350.

Seemingly a generous offer. But yet again, not one I can take advantage of. I have 2 UA trips planned in April, but they are of course already booked. I can't make last minute bookings, at higher prices and no upgrade availability.

Really lucrative one for me, 4 trips at $200 for 24k, which is basically assured. I'm surprised by this.

Usually mine have been something like 4 trips at $300 for 4k miles.

4 trips, $400 per trip, 28K miles. I think I may get there, although it will be close. I definitely have 3 trips to book, but I have a 2 week vacation in the middle of this that was booked long ago. So I need one more, we'll see...

Seriously, the day after I book travel?

Well, my offer is garbage, anyway: 3x trips $275 or more in any fare class for 2600 RDM.

They at least used to seem to try to target these things, asking me for things like 2x $1000+ front cabin fares for 30k RDM which would actually go a bit closer to my normal travel patterns.
