I received the following targeted email from United today. I logged into a website called United Map Your Dreams and received my offer. The deal basically offers bonus miles based on the number of round trips flown on United over the next couple months. In my case, 4 round trip flights earns 25,000 bonus miles in total. I did not read any restrictions on fare class in the T&C.

My offer details
I am a dedicated Southwest flyer and loathe going through O’hare for weekly travel. However I ran the numbers on this targeted promotion and I just can’t pass it up. I value United miles at approximately 2 cents per mile so for each round trip I fly (assuming I do 4), I am collecting 125 dollars in value. Even with my 100% bonus on Southwest as A-List Preferred, I get nowhere near that value per round trip.
Has anyone else received this offer? Are there variations of this offer out there?
