Did I receive an "extremely" soft landing?

Was Premier in 2011 and expected to lose status post-consolidation as I only flew a few thousand miles with UA last year. Logged into my account today which shows Silver Premier status. Is this a glitch, or can I expect to maintain status for 2012? Don't want to call for obvious reasons just in case......

My brother is in the same situation, as he is also dropping from 2P to GM. He was 2K short of reaching 2P again, but given how low 2P is now with perks, there wasn't a valid reason to chase it. He is still showing Silver, but I expect reality to set in within the coming days....

Happy for you both but boy, if this is indicative then the 2P ranks are going to be 1000's deep

Yes. I saw that too..

Been not flying as much.. came very close...
Looked on and saw as Premier Silver. Also, saw print you instant card and the expiration date was 1/1/2013.

So, if you see that, print your card now

This has to be some sort of an integration glitch. I was gold last year, but was 13k EQM short of requalifying for gold this year. Got my silver elite packet with new card in the mail last week, as expected.

But the new website shows me as gold, and just let me print one of the instant cards showing I'm gold through 1/31/13.

If it's real, it's a change I like!

Haha... just when I tried to print out the temporary membership card online, they disabled the function. My status still shows as Premier Platinum online. (I should be a base member) sigh

I think it is a glitch considering they have now blocked replacement card printing.

I dropped to silver but online kindly shows gold.

gave me hope,oh well

time to switch to A3 :-P

Umm, Did they let me stay Elite?

So, my status now shows as Premier Gold. I certainly didn't fly that much in 2011, but in previous years was a frequent flyer and had a decent amount of full fare J tickets. Are they just taking a long time to downgrade us? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Same issue for my wife/mom - looks like you can no longer print a duplicate card (which shows the lapsed higher status for many). They both still show at the higher level too.

Bet this gets fixed imminently.

I'm in the same boat. I'm kicking myself for not printing the card on Sunday when it was available...

Can we get an official statement from UA Insider on this? Is it a glitch or not? I "fled" United last year in anticipation of terrible upgrades with the merger and looking back I think it was a great decision to make EXP.

Anyway, I could still use Star Gold status and free redeposits on awards if they are willing to give it for free, but if not, then I hate to teased be like this! Just take it away already if I don't qualify!!!
