Another promo on.

My email says....
Until July 31, 2014, buy or gift Dividend Miles, and earn up to 100% bonus miles – up to 50,000 bonus miles. For example, if you buy 20,000 miles, you could add 40,000 miles to your total Dividend Miles balance.

However when I click through, 20,000-29,000 only pays 75% bonus (with 50% below that range and 100% above). As I needed another 50k, 25+25 would have been perfect. Maybe I'll give it a few days to see if it sorts itself out....

Received this morning

50+50 comes out at us1.88c/mile.

given our friend Glenn Stevens wants to keep pushing the dollar down, this might be a worthwhile promo.

Re: US Dividend Miles - Award Booking Questions and General Discussion

Might top off my account so I've got enough for a Europe next year.

My wife and I were talking about it last week... she asked me why we weren't flying F like last time... I had no valid answer. :confused:

Maybe not ... but you do have to log in I note.

Previous targeted version have required this.

Otherwise, if it's general, sometimes it can take a day or two for all the emails to be sent out ... family have received one of several possible so far and this is not unusual.

I got this, but may need to be a masochist given how they've treated my booking so far :eek:.

I've still got 30,000 miles. Is it feasible to share/buy more to make enough to look for J to SYD-HKG in about 4 weeks time?

After logging in I am not seeing a bonus, unless they don't like iPads.

This is a buy/gift promotion - not a share.

i.e. You buy the miles outright and get a bonus.

I'll skip - it's over 2¢ per point (US$1,881.25 or AUD2050 for 100K).

Haven't received an email. Targetted?

Isn't this the same as previous promotions?

I'll be buying near to the full complement. Will give me 4 x 180K accounts. Perfect for 4 x USA/EUR F tix + 4 x SWP J tix :)

Add that to 406K AA, 400K QF, 300K SQ & 100K LM mua ha ha ha...

Not that easy with OW ex AUS, unless you are VERY flexible with dates.
If they had only kept TG as a partner airline...

I'm still annoyed that the e-mail indicates buy 20k, end up with 40k .. but the reality is it's a tiered bonus!

No email received as yet & no mention of the special when logged into my USDM account. Could be targeted...

It is definitely targeted. that's what the e-mail sent to me from USDM said. Often though it'll open up to all towards the end of the month, but no guarantees.

Re: US Dividend Miles - Award Booking Questions and General Discussion

As others have already confirmed, its targeted so no luck if you haven't received the email for your account.

Email says: This offer is exclusive to you and is non‑transferrable.

It does say buy or 'gift' though so there is nothing stopping you from using an account that receive the offer and buying it for other accounts.
