Premier status duration

I recently qualified for Premier Platinum with my last trip. My account reflects my new status, but the virtual card in the UA App shows "valid thru 1/2018." I was under the impression that whatever qualifications achieved in 2017, would be applicable for the 2018 status year. Am I mistaken? And did I just go out of my way to qualify for plat for merely a few months with no more travel plans for the year?

It will be valid through 2018-JAN, but it will not show you that until 2017-FEB. A confusing quirk!

fumje meant 2019-JAN and 2018-FEB, respectively.

Great! I was hoping it was a glitch like this. Crisis over.

No a glitch, very standard. You get the January 2019 card in January 2018, like the rest of us.

To supplement - the card's validity always runs through from February to January next year.

Your status's validity can potentially run longer than the card's validity.

FWIW, the other programs I belong to reflect the duration of the status more logically. Like DL. Poor choice of words with glitch. Should have used quirk, as the first reply indicated.

Thanks. I never get the year right.
