Of course my PC membership expires at the end of this month and I fly to Alaska 1st week of November, then 2 trips after that. I don't know what the best thing to do is- renew CO's PC where I pay a bit less as a Plat, or buy United's Club membership. I recall someone telling me that one was better than the other but can't for the life of me recall why. (Either early senility or I'm just tired as the mom of a 2 year old who is away a week a month.)
Aren't all PCs and UA Clubs going to be the same anyway? Isn't it best to renew my PC membership as a Plat and let that become a UA club membership? Is anyone else in this position? As I recently got 2 completely different answers about upgrades on Hawaiian Flights on CO vs. UA (and still don't know which rep was right) I thought I'd let the real travel warriors handle this one.
There is no real difference between the two - go by lowest price. (there are currently a number of posts about coupon codes from various lounges for 1st year fee waiver for pres plat card you may also want to consider)
Upgrades vary based on airline, but club is indeed the same.
