This thread is about the deposit / posting of PlusPoints ( previously RPUs/GPUs) upon meeting the criteria for earning these certs.
- You will need to have earned and have had posted the needed PQMs
- You will need to have 4 UA operated segments or have a waiver (MP PresPlus or MP Club primary credit cardholders) -
- You will need to have met the required PQD levels or have a waiver ( Non-USA MP account address or credit spend waiver {only for Plat or lower}

NOTE in 2020 UA will be using a different set of elite qualification criteria -- PQF / PQP -- see New Premier Qualification Requirements for 2020: Only Spend or Spend + Flight Sectors

Then it will take hours or a few days (generally 2-3 but occasionally to a week)
There have been occasionally longer delays at the very end / beginning of the year.
Posting of MMer certs can take a week or two after the beginning of the year.

Questions about PlusPoints ( was GPU/RPU ) deposit / posting

I've been 1P on UA for the past two years, so the Plat thing is new to me. First, let me make sure I understand how RPUs work. I flew 75k in 2011. Now that I have flown over 25K in 2012, I earn 2 RPUs, right?

When will I receive them? Has anyone gotten them after 3/3?

You don't earn any RPUs in a given year until you hit 75k in that year. Then you earn 2. And you keep earning 2 for each 25k above 75k in that year. Then the next year you start back at zero and don't earn any until you hit 75k for that year.

And, even if you've hit 75,000+ in 2012, they won't post until the current conversion difficulties are ironed out. My guess is mid April.

As others have said, you'll get 2 after you fly 75k PQM in 2012. You'll then get 2 more every 25k PQM after that... subject of course to integration issues being worked out first.

I'd have already earned 2 on PMUA and have my next 2 by mid-April; sigh to that change.

Thanks for the feedback. I guess I won't have to worry about RPUs posting any time soon. Although with my work travel this year, it may be April for me

And if you hit 75,000 you'll definitely be lucky because just getting your "ON" flights to post in 2012 or 2013 will be a miracle! I'm at about 86K with only 68K posted as of the last 3 weeks.

My guess is the second Tuesday after the 3rd equinox in 2014 @ 2:33 a.m. CDT!

Nope..these are your 6...there won't be any more unless you hit 150k PQMs..and you'll get 2 more at that time.

RPU and GPU with 1k?

I just received the miles from my MNL trip.

I am finally 1k level.

It posted on the united site, but no additional RPU/GPU posted???

When I reached platinum, the 2 RPU appeared right away.
Nothing appeared with the 1k? is there delay before receiving them?

also, do I receive two more RPU, as well as 6 GPU with 1k? or just the 6 GPU?

also what is this new "PQM/PQS Toward Additional Upgrades" bar???
It says I need 125k in miles to received an additional 2 RPU?

Can take up to 6 weeks. Call them if you need one to be deposited earlier...
Just my experience here...

Strange??!!, when i hit 75k this year, the two RPU hit right away.

Does the clock start now? or when they finally hit my account?
