Neither does being an over-entitled elite! Already booked to 119K this year.

Why is it so many people being upset about the short timing of this promo or not elgibile and not complaining about fare class restriction instead ?

Do everyone that write in this thread realize the lowest fare class that qualify for the promo need to be V and or above ?

For many routes if you buy 2 tickets that are S/T/L/K/G/N, it would cost less than 1 ticket in V or above, and you are already earning 200% PQM normally instead of 150% PQM with the promo.

V-fare min even with 50% bonus and mileage run really don't go in the same thought. V-fares are probably >2x typical MR fares.

GS here, about 10K EQM so far (about 1/5 of where I usually am)

not offer.. I do have a sense of curiosity if UA will ever reach out to me and say "hey, after $50K+ of travel each of the last few years, we notice your flying fell of a cliff, anything we can do to fix it."

Alas saying sorry is not the Houston (but is the Dallas) way...

I've had only 3 last minute trips this year on UA and was able to register. Sitting at 60k EQMs. Will probably be able to fit 2 more trips in instead of taking AA.

I'm really not sure why this was targeted and for such a small time frame though !!

I forgot all about that debacle.

I guess there have been so many issues since 03 March that some are just falling out of my memory - perhaps that's COdbaUA's strategy?

Keep up with the bad news and some of the old bad news is forgotten?

I remember my account being subtracted thousands of RDMs for that promo last year after they had already been rewarded!

I'm Prem. Plat. with only one UA. flt this year. As a lifetime Prem. Gold who's been flying US Air because of the current UA schedule PHX/ORD/PHX, it probably won't make any difference, but I was targeted and did register.

My wife (1K from MM'er match) always seems to be eligible for these offers... I never am. Kinda funny, cuz her EQMs aren't usually too valuable to us.

I can start anywhere in the US , although I live in Grand Rapids Mi.( GRR). Can fly April 29 thru May 7. I would also like to use systemwide upgrades for the trip, even if the fare is higher to do so. any ideas?
If the fare is so high that already discounted to consider as mileage run material.

No mileage run would use V class to begin with, it often use K or G class for international.

I suggest you should check out how much is a G class ticket first, as V class ticket maybe more than double a G class ticket cost.

1K. I haven't flown United in over 2 months.

They wouldn't let me register.

Apparently United REALLY doesn't want my business.

not eligible, can't register 1k for years, 65pqm's already in the bank for this year. I wonder if the target is geographic - i'm in NYC. doesn't seem from the responses that it's targeted at any particular mileage or status demographic.
