Looks like these are going to be all over the place, as usual.

Is that a typo, or really $25 minimum fare?

Two trips for 22,000 miles. Value of ticket $275*

* Value of ticket must be $275 I just booked a reservation for $261, the day before I saw the mile play. Is it the total value of the ticket (what I paid United) or just the value of the airfare minus the taxes. It didn’t seem clear in the fine print

Same status but I got 3 trips over $125 for 5,000 miles.

As my most recent bookings have been approx. $80-$90/trip, 5,000 miles is unlikely to entice me to book a higher fare.

Not a typo. I was a bit surprised too.

Recently I was looking at EWR-FLL flights that were $41 return all in. I wonder if they factor your searches into the algorithm...

My offer is 21K miles with $175 min/trip for three trips.

Added:

Wife’s offer is 30K miles, with $250 min/trip x 3. She won’t do this.

Wow. Absolutely nothing. I usually get an offer, even if it's ridiculous...

I've one trip booked later this month and am planning another the week before Thanksgiving, so it would have been perfect for me, but oh well.

2 trips, minimum fare $750, 5000 miles

I probably will be able to do one of these, but not two.
