Alas, for me, the issue isn't a lack of miles or segments, but qualifying dollars.

Mine were up to 15k @ $2025. Of course, I am already booked to within 15k of retaining 1K (and with hardly any summer or fall travel booked), so UA probably could tell this wasn't going anywhere fast for me and priced accordingly.

I see you two are Gold and Silver. Reminder, you can get a UA MP card and 25K spend will waive the PQD requirement. That may be easier for you. My parents "save" thousands of dollars doing this because they are typically able to buy bulk fares ($0 PQD) for less than half the cost of UA's non-bulk fares.

I received the same offer. But I'm not even booked back to this year's Gold yet, let alone last year's Platinum. At 13.5 CPQM, it's 1.6 CPQM higher than the Awards Accelerator rates I had been consistently getting this year (11.9 CPQM). Emphasis on had -- went in to check and those have all jumped to 15 CPQM. So yeah, somewhere the UA Premier Sponging Machine continues to fail at guessing my interest level.

Thanks for this. Interesting. My max is 15k but roughly 2k for that. I just bought some and this looks like the same pricing.

Link works but I'm pretty sure I didn't get the email.

Same offer here... I've "only" got 35k PQM traveled already this year... not much booked out in advance yet, but I'm sure it's coming; my schedule is way too dynamic for that. Being a DRW (domestic road warrior) really is no fun ...

It offered me 15K for $1575. I've only flown 13K PQM so far this year.

Something about buying PQM doesnt sit right with me. I pay them but I'm not really getting anything where I could buy a F seat and at least I get some snacks and a bigger seat where I get more PQM PLUS PQD PLUS RDM

Considering I'm a segment guy I might bite on this...my spend will be there to reach 1K....just a question if I hit the segments or not

I find it interesting that they are pushing this offer out so early in the calendar year. Any thoughts on the driver other than a revenue generation effort? Being so early, folks may buy up their PQMs/PQSs and then end up hitting it with pure travel.

My offer is 15K PQM / 15 PQS for $1,575.

Mine was also 15K @ $2025 - I'm at >60K PQM YTD (although nothing currently booked) and have already cleared the PQD threshold for the year.

I'll pass.
