Likely it's a targeted offer. If you normally spend that much money each month anyway, I say go for it!
I've received some offers for my Discover More recently, but nothing quite as nice as yours. Mine are more like a 25% discount at Banana Republic or a $50 credit for buying $300 worth of gas at Chevron over the next 3 months. Stuff like that.

Pretty sure that it is a targeted offer as I have seen a few other members post about having been offered something similar.
The offer itself is pretty enticing -$500 cash back on 18k of spending works out to a 2.77% return. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that 2.77% would be on top of the cashback earned from the 1% and 5% rotating categories (which would push the total % cash back to something closer to 4%).
The only drawbacks ( aside from the fact that 3k is a fairly large amount for most people to run through one card fir six consecutive months) I can think of are the. 25 on the first 3k and the $1500 caps on the bonus categories each quarter, but the 2.77% more than makes up for those limitations.
