    Dang it, I’m not one of the lucky ones.

    Need to book 12.8K more miles for 1K this year. Preferably cheaply…this would have helped. 🙁

    Not invited. Wouldn’t’ve helped anyway, already booked all my flights for the rest of the year.

    Neither my Million Miler BF or I are eligible.

    No dice either. No worries as I should hit 107-112K

    I wasn’t invited but it says this when I register:

    Registration Successful
    MileagePlus account HE3xxxxx is now registered for this offer (TB4M54).
    Registration Date: Fri., Sep. 14, 2012

    I guess that means I’m in?

    @Nat- if I got a message that said “Registration Successful”, I would assume the registration was successful. Make sure you print out the message.

    I wouldnt count on a Registration Successful message sticking, I recall back to the some of the DEQM promotions a few years back, that were targetted-eg by address etc, not working for people, tho they had the Registration Successful message.Just saying.

    Interesting. Well, I did take a screenshot and put it safely in my dropbox. I guess I’ll see what happens.

    What this does confirm along with PRASM results is that United is hurting to at least some degree from loss of elites, a direct consequence of their elite unfriendly changes.

    I suspect that we will see a full fledged AA double qualifying miles by the end of September. The question is then will UA match and will those who got this promo earn 250% qualifying miles.

    @Noelene – that was, as you say, a few years ago. More recently, the system will actually tell you if you are eligible or not. Most of us are getting the “AB123456 is not eligible for this promotion” messages. I’d say it’s a very safe bet that the “Registration successful” message means just that.

    To those of you who say “it didn’t work”, do you mean you were not targeted (did not receive the e-mail) and when trying to register on the page, it gives you an error?

    I did not get the e-mail and when I register on the page it says “now registered”, the same way as Nat Arem mentioned.
