Note, for those who don't do math well (like me).
Assuming $2k fare = 8446 PQD in total, then that's 1.5GPU, not 3 at 1GPU per 6000PQD.

Every time I speak with UA or Chase, I give them similar feedback. Chase United cards aren't worth having for this 1K, and I'd happily get a card if it made sense.

Controversial prediciton for 2021: 1K upgrades will clear into PN

Agree or disagree?

At a GS-lite, it sure would be nice. And it would hearken back to the PMUA days of two waitlists: one for 1K/GS and one for the rest, so the history is there. I personally am...

I fly between 150 and 200k BIS. I spend about 24k. That's 12-16cpm. Last year was probably closer to 16, but certainly not 20. I make 1k this year on volume, not cpm, but...
