I have 1-3 possible trips for the remainder of the year, so it's unlikely I'll get to 125k PQM for the extra RPUs. I wasn't able to use my entire RPU/GPU allotment from qualifying for 1K last year, so it's no big deal.
I ended up taking three more trips after re-qualifying for 1K, so I finished the year with:
Route: RSW-CLE
PQM: 111,855
PQD: $24,781
PQS: 64

​​​​​​I am guessing a good chunk of non-016 tickets and non-UA flights credited to UA MP.

I average about 100K BIS a year for the past 8 years on non-016 and non-UA *A flights. I could easily make 1k using my foreign address and just fly four segments of short-haul fights costing less than $300 in total PQD.

It is certainly doable for many oversea’s based M+ members.

Squeezed in 1K for 2018. Had about 15k PQM in other flights not credited to UA. Not sure I'll hit $15k PQD in 2019 though.

I could do that, but prefer flying UA due to free Eco+

Approximately 90% of my PQM have been achieved with United-tickets, the other 10% short-haul in Europe and Brazil.

UA-bookings:
- CPH - SAN: 14k PQM / 350 PQD
- AMS-KOA: 17.5k PQM / 608 PQD
- AMS-GRU: 19k PQM / 474 PQD
- TXL-SCL: 21k PQM / 531 PQD
- TXL-LAX: 14k PQM / 229 PQD
- LAX-CLT: 5k PQM / 382 PQD (quite expensive in comparison)

So cheap TATL + 2x South America did the trick for me. SCL was mostly a mileage run as I figured out Upgrade vouchers should be worth it for me.

2019 is going to be a bit more expensive at least, as I will have to buy-up from Basic Eco for each US-booking.

Thankful for Platinum 2018

Easily Qualified and Thankful for PLATINUM in 2018.
PQM: 116,277
PQD: $5,765
Chase spend waiver.
(nonprofit sector it's hard to reach 1K PQD; always economizing. 2 trips were *A non-016 tickets.)
