I've made another little GreaseMonkey script to show it.

Or, if you don't do the GreaseMonkey thing, go to your account page, view source and search for QualifyDollarPopout. It is right there. If you're over $10K it won't give you more detail than that but below $10K you get a specific number.

Hmm. Your screenshot shows that your ctl00_ContentInfo_AccountSummary_spanCardSpendWaiv erPopout is "Not Eligible". Mine is "Not met".

Do you not hold a UA credit card associated with your frequent-flyer account?!

I would assume that "not eligible" means no UA-branded chase credit card, while "not met" means UA-branded chase cc, but have not met the $25k spend threshold.

Answer: these are not included
And it's an incredibly stupid move by UA to not count the cost of PQMs/RDMs purchased when using the premier / award accelerator. Unless one knows at the beginning of the year that their flying will result in $10,000 of acceptable PQD spend, there is no incentive to purchase PQM.

This year I puchased 18,000 PQM. Had I not purchased those miles, I would have 84,048 PQM. Given that my PQM spend is $8260.00, I'm just a fraction under what UA wants me to spend per mile in order to reach a given elite level. Next year, there is NFW I will spend a dime on premier accelerator unless I find myself in situation where I meet the PQD requirement but not the PQM requirement. Since the chances of that are slim and none, once I reach 50,000 next year, it makes no sense at all to fly UA, at least for status purposes. I'll reach gold and be done with UA.

Great way to motivate your customers, UA.

That is my assumption as well.

From what I am seeing in my totals, the certs count.

If you are not a US-domiciled account that line is apparently not shown in the qualification report.

Thanks - works great! Disappointing that UA just provides "over $10,000" and not the actual figure.

Anyway, looking forward to 2014 to see what is counted..

I would be over $10k, but since CA, SN and NH had better schedules and better service than UA, I found it to be easier to just book with them.
