You have been invited ...
Given that wording, I would guess that it is targeted, but so that we can be sure (and dissect it to death ), any chance you can post the full T&C (including the promotion code)?

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't read into "You're invited" as being targeting... United has invited us into many untargeting promos over the years, especially Ameniti!

I also got this and my impression was it's targetted.

Checking fares, the best I've found so far is a $158 o/w M TUS-PHX.

UA did this last year. It was targeted to former UAMP elites who had lost their status by not flying enough that year.

UA probably figured their C11 filing scared off a lot of folks to AA and other airlines, and wanted them "back in the fold".

I got the new offer, and I've only ever been a GM.

I'm a 2P with enough booked travel to lock in next year's 2P too, and I got the email.

For what it's worth.

2/4 $50

Mr ME1st received this offer - he has never been more than a GM and flies average of 3 paid flights a year. I agree with Randomman - 1K will be worth more in 2005.

No doubt UA is offering elite status to occasional fliers in an attempt to get them to fly UA more in 2005 with the benefits of being an elite - especially with the access restrictions being tightened for Economy Plus.
