Benefits unique to the Chase MP Presidential Plus card (closed and not available for new cardholders)
- 1000 FPQM per $5,000 spend (or 0.2 / $1)
- FPQMs are only valid for Premier Silver / Gold / Platinum status, expire 3 years after earning
- FPQMs can only be used to increase PQMs to a max of 75,000. They are not counted once 75K is reached. (example 80K PQMs +10 FPQMs is still 80K total)
- FPQMs cannot be used to earn GPUs or RPUs past 75K PQMs
- FPQMs are held separately and are only used when the owner requests them to be applied to their MP account
FPQMs can be applied for a given year as late as March 31 of the next year

Only you can find out the exact dates and amounts of spend and can tell us

Yes, the PQPs post as soon as you hit the $12k threshold for the next 500 PQP.

FPQMs are now listed as FPQPs in My Account. It still differentiates between pre-2012 and others.

Expiring Flex PQPs for those who already have lifetime Platinum

What about expiring flex PQPs when you are already platinum? I earned them, but apparently with UA, there's no way to use them at all. Can they be applied toward 1K if they will otherwise be lost? I'd like to get some benefit since I have been a Presidential Plus cardholder for more than ten years.

Put the car aside in 2022 - no use of PQP that expire
keep the 100 PQP for 2023 as this will be the last boost you get from Flex PQM/PQP; spend in 2023 - Restart spend on card in 2023 Jan 1

Welcome to my world. Those PQP seem to be ttally useless to those in our situation and UA is not at all flexible about it.

It would be a good thing if expiring FPQPs could be extended or used for something else such as 1K status or PlusPoints or even RDMs.

Well, if anyone else has any ideas, please share. Thanks.

Even a conversion of 1 FQP to 1 RDM will be better than the nothing that is offered today
or just make the fPQP non-expiring
UA needs credit card spend now more than before; these card holders are high spenders = 10 PQP = 240k spend a yr
Any moron who runs loyalty programs will know this pool is valuable

While most FPQPs will expire by 3/2023, some of us still have pre-2012 non-expiring FPQPs, so it could be in UA's best interest to let you convert them to something else so they can actually be done with the program once and for all in 2023. I would be happy if I could apply mine at the old FEQM rate to lifetime status like I think we used to be able to do.

The Continental MM program included pretty much everything that counted towards Elite status as applicable towards the MM mile counter. FPQMs did get included in my lifetime number whenever I used them in OnePass. Not so in MP. It would certainly be better than simply having FPQPs simply disappear on their expiration dates.

From United.com, after logging in navigate to your account and it is listed in the Your Premier Progress table, underneath your lifetime miles.

Maybe I don't have any left (according to UA)?? I can't see any mention of FlexPQM anywhere. Odd.

is it possible that the 5000 puts you past the number of PQPs that you need for Platinum?
