Domestic buy-ups like this even exist on UA (see the ToD thread), but not on international flights. Apples and oranges.

Since you land back the same day, Sunday arrivals mean back to work on Monday. I imagine then the carrier thinks they can sell more seats, and won't make awards as available this far out.

It should work the same way.

If you're within the Platinum window, you should be, by all rights, first in line. Before the windows, UA.com doesn't talk about Y/Bs having upgrade priority.

A GPU, based on CC, is worth about $300 to $350**. 50K RDM is worth about $1000. So spending $1200 to get $1600 of value.

**Some never get to use them. Some use them to save thousands.

In your case, you're three years from LT 1K and till then LT Platinum, even if your PQD is $1. I'd do it if I were you. But then again, I don't know how long you intend to be a road warrior for.
