I just got this as well. Just finished a tpac trip on Wednesday bumping me over 50k pqm for the year. Edit, interestingly it still says silver member, despite being gold on united.com.

Targeted Email: 50% bonus on PQM's through Dec 7

Just got an email from United. I was silver last year, but switched my flying to DL late last year and have only one UA flight so far this year. It's offering an extra 50% bonus on PQMs for all flights. So full fare, first, or business would earn 100%, while discount economy will earn a 50% bonus.

Not sure if I'll take it, I do have some flights coming up that would probably requalify me for Silver again. But I'm considering doing a status match back to UA once they sort out their merger issues, and premier members can't status match (would be matching from DL Platinum).

Looks like it is targeted for premier members who haven't been traveling much:

Typical. Just booked another two trips last week which will take me to Plat again - so naturally these won't count

Thanks UA, piss me off even more...

Got this too. Note that it's only valid on tickets purchased after yesterday, not on tickets already purchased for travel within the promotion period. Thanks UA...I've got five trips in the next few months, all purchased before yesterday. While I got the offer, it means SFA to me! Not the best way to convince me to come back...

More evidence that Elites are jumping ship from UA. OOPS, time to get back some of our loyal customers we royally crapped on this year!

LOL, I've flown 4 flights over the past 2 weeks, and I got the same "Dear Halls120, we noticed you haven't flown much lately." Oh, and I'm booked for another R/T next weekend, and a R/T in November.

My guess is that all 1Ks got the same e-mail.

I consider this a good sign, however, that they recognize that some FFs have gone elsewhere, and are doing something to keep us happy.

Could someone advise what is the promo code and/or email link for registering for this? I never seem to get any e-mails from UA so don't know if I qualify or not for this. Definitely flying UA a lot less this year due to the various problems.

Thanks

I haven't received this (yet), but I suspect they're sending them out in batches so as to not overload their e-mail servers. Bummer about not being valid for previously booked travel though

EQM Offer

Mr JHV got this offer. He is a 1K MM and has flown about 70K this year. I am a 1K MM and have flown about 90K so far. I didn't get the offer.

OK, a little confused here, 50% additional PQM in First, then another additional 50% PQM in discounted. So 100% bonus if in first and 50% in coach?

Just received this and signed up. Haven't flown that much this year on UA but already had some MR's booked. Will all the MR's I have booked for the next couple of months receive this bonus credit? Also, appears it has to be RT and wont apply to OW.
