    Just got an email on my US Air card. Spend $750 in May/June/July and get 15000 points. Not a terrible spend requirement, especially using VRs. Spend $2,250 and get 17,250 miles.

    I believe this has been an offer going around for at least a few months.

    Yes... was just about to post. I got this for my second card today that I "ordered" in January or February. Had received it for my first card, too, last year. Excellent deal!

    What type of spend are you initially putting on your card to get targeted for this offer?

    From what I have read, there is little or no pattern to the targeting. But it certainly seems that many people get this offer, sooner or later.

    I got the offer for Jan-Mar, but the miles still haven't posted. Anyone else have experience with this?

    Barclay just made the same offer on the Frontier card in the past two days. I have no way of knowing whether it's "targeted" or not, but my wife and I both got it.

    BTW, how long do they normally take to post the bonus? I completed the offer on my US Air card weeks ago and have yet to see the points.

    Thanks, all.

    Generally from what I've seen, this offer is given to anyone who gets the card and makes the initial purchase requirement but then lets the card sit for a few months w/out activity. After a couple months of inactivity the offer will just pop up. A nice way to sweeten the sign-up bonus!

    From memory, it was pretty much the 6-8 weeks they promised in the T&C.

    According to my records, I received my 2nd card shortly before Feb 22 (my first use of it).

    I was working on the same offer in jan, feb, and march.....I lost track of what I was doing...ugh!
    Literally last day I realized my mistake.....tried to purchase div miles to complete the spend requirement.
    They didn"t post for 2 days so I figured I screwed up and figured life goes on, lesson learned!
    Lo and behold got 15k div miles on the Apr statement!
    There is an Easter Bunny I guess!?
    Does anyone else have something similar?

    I have not gotten this one yet. I hope so. I never seem to get the sharp targeted deals ever!

    I got a postcard in the mail with the same offer. Got the card mid-Feb, put minimal spending on it.

    I got a postcard yesterday in addition to the email earlier. Time to dust off the US MC card as May starts in a few hours ;)

    Has anyone tried to call and ask for this offer without receiving the targeted mailer?
