You first have to select the Award Accelerator offer. Not aware of a situation where the offer willn't be there.

Premier Accelerator does not apply to PQD.

You can get by Plat with CC spend, 1K is the first real PQD threshold

I am seeing 2 cpm and PQM at additional 10cpm for a total of 12cpm.
In the past i have seen totals of 9cpm, so I am not buying at 12cpm.

I'm not interested in buying Premier accelerator miles but was looking to buy some regular miles towards award travel. Know matter what itin I book the most it offers me is 10 or 15,000 RDM's ???? NY-LAX OR NY-SIN. doesn't matter. Still the max it's offering is 15,000 RDM's. what's going on??? Could it be cuz I didn't fly UA really at all last year? I was just downgraded from 1K to PLAT due to 2MM status. Why won't even a ticket to SIN offer me more then 15,000 extra RDM's. (should offer 50,000 if my memory is correct

There is a screenshot above from someone offered 50-75,000 RDM's on his itin

For an ITIN of ORD to SIN I was just offered 60,000 miles at 2CPM, but Award Accelerator was 12CPM. I am UA Plat, if that matters.
