TARGETED: 2X points and A-List

I only seem to get these after points bookings... The problem is I don't need A-List since I'm typically flying a 1X/day route so the standby doesn't really work in my favor and the advantage of a better boarding position for a single person isn't a huge deal...now if it was companion pass, I'd have my @$$ on a WN plane right now!

Bellow is the text of the e-mail:
Why? Because we miss seeing you onboard! | View in web browser.

I got the same. I have a handful of points bookings this summer but it's not going to be worth it to me to try to fly the requisite number of paid flights.

Thanks for posting. Is it also listed in your online WN account under "Promotions?"

Nothing here yet for wife, son, or myself.

I got this one, despite completing a challenge earlier this year. I'll probably do it, I'd been considering trying to work in enough paid segments to maintain it through next year anyway. Ten by September sounds better than nineteen by December, I'm just sitting on too many points.

It's in both my email box and my promotions tab - nothing for my SO, who has only flown on points or as a companion for... years?

I, who almost never get promotions, received this one.

I have exactly one WN flight booked through the end of the year, which I suspect is the reason.

I have 11 flights scheduled on other carriers though, so I don't think I'll have time to make this work.

I was also targeted for this and registered, but I have a handful of flights in the next 2 weeks already booked. I know the terms specify that flights must have been booked and flown in the promotional window to count, but I've heard that with previous challenges it's the "flown" part that matters within the window, not necessarily when it was booked. Since its Southwest I would just cancel/rebook the flights to be safe, but given the <2 week window, prices have increased dramatically from when I originally booked, so not really worth it. Anyone have a DP of this from previous status challenges? I'll add mine after flying this weekend if the flight actually needs to be booked within the window to count.

Southwest has recently updated the language on these promotions to make it clear that you must register, then book, then fly in order to qualify.

i was targeted but slightly annoyed because i already have 3 roundtrip flights booked for this time period which apparently won't count even though the travel is within this time frame...

Sweetlites, if it makes financial sense to do so, you could cancel your existing flights and rebook as new reservations to qualifying (of course, depending the difference in fares to see if it is worthwhile to you).

Revenue flights that I book and then add my companion to would still count for me, right?

I got this one, first possibly useful targeted promotion for me.

Of course I locked myself mostly into other airlines during the birthday sale due to better schedules so the 2017 offer is mostly a miss. 2018 would require some segment runs but could be worth it.

Total first world problem. Have a bunch of Southwest rez but they're all using points, and of course, they're all cheap sale fares that reprice substantially higher now. Tempted to maybe bang it out either on tier points on BS tickets (already have 15k from spend) or just do a marathon segment run intra-TX for maybe $600 after rebates. Either way it's far from "free."

I (also) got a rock.

Guess I can't complain though, I got the winter/spring promotion of 3 round trips to get A-List through the end of 2017. Gotta get 2018 the old fashioned way though.
