Promo: 3 PQMs and 3 RDMs / $ for E+ Upgrades [TARGETED]

This probably won't help anyone on this forum, but thought I would share just in case (you never know). Apologies in advance if this has already been posted, but I wasn't able to find a thread.

One of my readers forwarded me a email he received from United offering 3 RDMs and 3 PQMs per $ spent on E+ Upgrades purchased by 4/17 for travel through 4/26 (promotion is currently underway)

Screenshot:


I'm not entirely sure what the targeting criteria are - maybe GMs who are past E+ upgrade purchasers?

Fascinating. $80 per E+ seat translates to 240 extra PQM/RDM. Which we can argue is worth $4.80 + $24.00 (10cPQM/2cRDM). But if it were opened up to all, even Premiers, would be a cheap way to bump to the next level.

PQM is only "worth" something if a small buy tips you into the next bracket.

In other words, I am being offered 35K PQMS for $3,500 (transpac). 10c/PQM. No thanks.

RDM is minimum 1c and of course goal is to get 2c+ on award redemption.

If it were to happen, the only snag is that Silvers would be the only ones to cash in since the rest of the Premiers get E+ free anyways at booking.

Golds only get 1 companion. They could try as well.

But I agree - this is probably only targeted for GMs.
