I love how its "earning" PQD. More like lining UA's pockets.

My milestones are different.

1 = 10K after $1,000 PQD
2 = 10K after $1,500 PQD
3 = 10K after $2,000 PQD

Total of 30,000 miles

Not eligible either. Not surprised though. I haven't received a single email from UA for or about anything since the merger with the exception of the mileage plus shopping portal and I didn't sign up for those emails.

I received one too:

Receive up to 120K bonus miles
Milestone 1: 30K bonus miles after earning $2K PQD
Milestone 2: 40K bonus miles after earning $3K PQD
Milestone 3: 50K bonus miles after earning $4K PQD

Pretty lucrative when you add in the normal miles earned as a 1K (4,000 x 11 = 44,000), so 166,000 miles in total for USD4000 (plus some taxes). That comes to roughly 2.5 cpm.

Seems like this one is targeted to 1K's? Silver here...and I am not eligible either.

1K here and not eligible. Shame because I'd easily hit those spend thresholds. Perhaps they take spend rates into account for the targeting.

1k and possibly an Intl. component (home airport? travel patterns?) as well?

I have no status with UA, have exactly 1 lifetime UA flight credited to UA and this is the offer I received:

30k miles for 1k PQD
40k miles for 2k PQD
50k miles for 3k PQD

so same miles as the poster I quoted but each for 1k PQD less.

Very tempting offer. The less you fly UA the better the offer maybe? ;)

Not completely .... I'm Gold and have 0 flights for this year and maybe 2-3 for last year.

cliburn Apr 19, 16 4:06 pm

I got 65,000 for $3500
85,000 for $6500
105,000 for $9500

BlissWorld Apr 19, 16 4:10 pm

UA Dirt

70K for $3.5k
Another 90K for $7k
Another 115K for $10.5k

So, 275K miles if I go for 1K...hmmm ;)

I didn't get any such email either; it stands to reason that UA is only sending these emails out to persons who HAVEN'T spent serious $$$ recently.

Not eligible...go figure.
