I received an email for 40%, I’m assuming the 50% offer is targeted?

It did not appear to be targeted, t&c dont have any language to suggest that either. When you log into your AS account, does it only give you 40% bonus? What are the tiers? Also double check the promo dates in your email. Let me know..thanks!
