How to get miles from Austin, TX AUS

Hello. I am very new to this.
I've been a Continental OnePass member since 2007, and now it merged into MilagePlus. I've never been able to get Elite Status, but this year I want to make it.

I make multiple trips per year to Mexico City, and it would be nice to get the Elite perks.
So in general, what is easier/better... to get Elite status by the total number of miles, or the Premier Qualifying Segments?

At this very moment, I have 3,720 year-to-date Premier Miles, and 8 year-to-date Premier Segments.
Lifetime Flight Miles: 9,054.

My home airport is AUS, but I can drive and fly out of SAT too. What would be the best way to get Premier status fastest?? Thanks!!

EDIT: It should be obvious, but I'll state it. My frequent flyer program is currently with United Airlines.
