    I got a promo offer from the Barclays card for 20% bonus earned miles across the board plus a foreign transaction fee rebate, both for July-August.

    I smell market research in action.

    Interestingly, no deliberate signup was needed.

    Has been posted already in the credit card forum.

    Are you sure it is targeted? Consensus was that it was not.

    Thanks for the pointer; sorry for overlooking it. No, I'm not certain that it's targeted.

    I don't think that's a problem over here. Better to put the information out where people are likely to see it, even if it does mean it's posted in more than one forum (is my understanding, at least).

    To my knowledge it was targeted. Some folks got different offers than others. Everyone may ultimately have been targeted with something, but I have heard from folks who got different offers.
