Okay - when you consider that:
1. They clearly advertize the doubled-rewards for new customers.
2. They didn't explicitly extend the offer to older customers.
3. The promotion is definitely continuing for new customers, but not for old ones. The website does say it's only for new customers.
It's probably fair to treat it more as a signup bonus than a broad promo. Maybe any individual old customer could have gotten it by being one of the earlier people to ask, but they would probably have ended it long before a quarter of their old customers signed up. I agree it was apparently more by accident than intent.
I was dumb enough in my pre-CCF days to apply for a Discover without getting a signup bonus, so I have no qualms about squeezing a little "unearned" cash from them. I'll take this promo (and $10 before, and maybe another one later) as my bonus.
