Email from UA - "It's not too late to reach Premier Silver (or Gold/Plat/1K) status"

No option to purchase for me or the Mrs. Got an "invitation only" error message. Not that I would be doing it anyway...

Me: dropping from 1k to Gold (50,526 PQM)

Yeah, I'm about to fall from 1K to Silver, and I can buy up to Gold for the low, low price of $2149!

I guess UA won't be doing any soft landings this year.

Ugh. I guess I should hurry up and do those 47,000 miles I need to get MM status.

Gold to Platinum table

I was able to login to an account to view this Gold to Platinum table. Not needed though due to a Copa flight not posting until Jan 5th. No email about this offer from United yet, which is a good thing, and RPUs posted so we know Platinum was achieved.

1,000 PQM/1 PQS - $349
2,000 PQM/2 PQS - $649
3,000 PQM/3 PQS - $849 *
4,000 PQM/4 PQS - $999
5,000 PQM/5 PQS - $1149
6,000 PQM/6 PQS - $1299
7,000 PQM/7 PQS - $1449
8,000 PQM/8 PQS - $1599
9,000 PQM/9 PQS - $1749
10,000 PQM/10 PQS - $1899
11,000 PQM/11 PQS - $2049
12,000 PQM/12 PQS - $2199
13,000 PQM/13 PQS - $2349
14,000 PQM/14 PQS - $2499

I need 15k PQM to reach Gold (was a gold previously, dropping to silver), and was offered to buy them for $2449.

Thanks, but no thanks. As much as I'll miss E+ at booking and club usage, that's not worth $2500 to me.

If you buy the PQM does that become existing PQM mileage for 2013?
