Is it possible to earn status on revenue only ?

Previously, UA would review accounts and grant new status or upgrade a traveler's status based on his/her spend with UA. Often, the traveler had nowhere near the required flight mileage to obtain the status but had purchased expensive fares such as full fare international J/F. I am not referring to GS status, which we know is revenue influenced/based. Has anyone recently gotten status or had status upgraded due to spend and without meeting the published mileage criteria ? I haven't seen evidence of this in some time ? Any info is appreciated !
