    Appears to be targeted (rejected my MP acount). "Account XXxxxxxx is not eligible for this offer (TB4M50)."

    Yes, the T&C page says that. Nice to see they actually check on the front end.

    Based on my small sampling of three accounts they sent it to the two accounts that actually alread have trips to HKG booked for that period. I am not going to book another one, so it's a bit frustrating. I registered anyway, just in case they screwed up the purchase date validation.

    I got this offer. Perhaps because I went to HKG earlier this year?

    Both accounts I manage rejected. No big deal as I'm not going to HKG anyways, even with the bonus.

    I would have gone, if UA hasn't canceled my ticket...

    No go for me. I just took a trip to Hong Kong in early September.

    I've taken three trips so far this year to HKG, and no invite for me either. I wonder what the target group really was?

    Do you already have a flight booked during that promo period? As I said earlier, my theory is that the target group is those who have already booked a flight, with the clear goal to annoy them :D (based on two of the three accounts I manage having received the promo, and they are the ones who have that flight booked).

    Not me, but I got the offer (but not planning any trips to HKG, at this point).

    Didn't work for me either, and I am just about to book one. I'm thinking of RDU -> EWR -> HKG.

    Nada for me, and I flew to HKG in April. Says its only good originating from SFO/EWR/ORD -- wonder if you have to live in those cities as a prerequisite.

    Just a wide guess but my guess is your trip wouldn't been eligble for the bonus anyways :)
