My Q-Class in Dec SIN-NRT-SIN got the bonus PQM and was posted yesterday.

This was unexpected. But I am not complaining.

If I would have known, a few flight segments would have been credited to another program as to maximize PQMs.

Anyway, any idea what was this promotion all about?

The promotion was all about providing an extra incentive for MP members to take PS flights.

My December 3rd RT SFO/EWR just posted as 10,000 bonus PQMs. I guess that they got a bit overwhelmed with people calling to worry about the 6 to 8 week advertised posting delay and chose today to cleanup the early adopter's accounts.

No luck yet for PS flights on December 18th and 26th. I'm hoping my PQM just post a little later because my flight happened so recently. Also I'm obviously still missing my 2 RPU and 6 GPU, so am going to get nervous if they don't post soon. Why does it take so long for these to post?

Have to finally hand it to UA - was worried about the 10,000PQM I am owed (figured i would go a month without 1K (had 93,243 PQM on 12/30 but UA came thru and as of mid night 1/31 my bonus PQM's were added and my 22nd year as a 1K is secure (the fewest miles flown by me on UA since 1994 but the most miles flown on EK since 2000 so it equals out)

Now I wonder when I will get the credit for the D class tkt i flew on 12/31 from EWR-LAX??? still not credited so will it go to 2016 or go back to 2015???

I flew 12/26 and am sitting on 49K PQM, with the 1500 from the promotion expected to put me over. Was only silver in 2015, so timing makes a difference for me.

I just called agent and was told that the bonus will post by the end of February.

For those of us awaiting 1K renewal, if we get the GPUs in February, I wonder if we will get an extra month before expiration.

Question checking enrollment status?

I signed up for this promo, and when I try to sign up again, it says that I'm already registered for the promo. However, on the offers page (https://www.united.com/web/en-US/app...s/default.aspx) I don't see the promotion or my registration status. Is there any way to confirm that I'm actually signed up for this promo on their system?

I tried calling the 1k desk but the person didn't know what I was talking aobut.

Call the MileagePlus Service Center. They'll be able to confirm it for you. Give them the promotion code if they don't know what you're talking about.

I just got off the phone w/ the service center. My bonus PQMs haven't posted yet and they said there's no way to expedite it, so I'll just have to wait the full 8 weeks for my Nov 17th flight to credit. I'm sitting at 48,xxx PQM for 2015 and need these 3k PQMs.

This is a bit annoying since I have 3 r/t flight starting the 3rd wk of Jan that I'm booking and I would like to confirm the E+ upgrades now.

Makes no sense how UA is posting these bonuses. My 2 PS flights were 12/3 & 12/10. I needed 6,400 PQMs To hit 1K & was surprised to see UA credited the 10,000 bonus PQMs at midnight 12/31 and added the 6 GPUs & 2 extra RPUs at the same time.

I'm certainly not special but during a call to Mileage Plus a few weeks ago asking about when I would see these credits I lucked out w a great agent who looked at my account history back to 1994 & remarked "wow, you've been a 1K every year since you joined" she then asked why so few PQMs earned this year since my average over 21 years is 167,000 PQM's. I explained that I'm based in Dubai & most of my flights in 2015 were to Asia or L.A. (Both are non stop destinations on EK). I have a feeling this agent watched my account and did me a favor. Too bad it was unexpected or I would have asked her name and wrote a letter
