    I would sell them and make enough money to make a time machine, then go back in time and find the person that decided to have this stupid contest instead of the Grand Slam -- who is probably the same that argued against a Hop, Skip & Jump -- and I would punch them so hard in the throat that my first would hurt.

    Yeah, that sounds like a good use of the miles.

    I read Miles & More and automatically though of Luftie... I think that's a branding whoops there.

    This deserved a repeat and not just a click of the "like" button. I particularly like the throat punch part.

    So you get an entry for every dollar you charge (2 for travel). Nice way to encourage more spend. Not!

    Well, I am using my US MC at the moment anyway due to the 15,000 mile offer I got for three months of $750 spend, so I'll probably have around 3000 entries.

    By the way, why did they announce this now when the being of the promo was Aug 1?

    I actually got this offer around August 1, so not sure why travelpye got theirs so late.

    I got the email today as well.

    Interesting. I even posted to that thread, but totally don't recall that promo.

    I have to say that I am not feeling the love from US/Barclays. Not only did I get this email a month after Travelbear, at least a year after they began these offer, I STILL have not been targeted for one of the 15K after $750 spend offers HaveMilesWillTravel got and that have been bouncing around for better part of a year.

    Not to mention that every time I see a new marketing email from them, my heart skips a beat until I see it is not an announcement about Grand Slam.:(

    I got a snail mail postcard a couple weeks ago and then the email just couple days ago regarding the $750 spend promotion.

    Reverse order for me, but yeah, they see to be really interested in me using their card. Oh, I will, for the next three months. :)
