Changes announced per Updates to MP Premier Program -1K PQD $15K, P fare 150%, fewer RPU, Bag waiver & more

GPUs , RPUs
Effective January 1, 2019:
  • Premier members will earn six Global Premier Upgrades upon meeting all qualification requirements of Premier 1K status.
  • An additional one Global Premier Upgrade will be awarded for each 25,000 Premier qualifying miles or 30 Premier qualifying segments earned thereafter during the same calendar year that Premier 1K was reached.
  • While you’ll still earn Regional Premier Upgrades when you qualify for Premier Platinum and 1K status, you’ll no longer receive additional Regional Premier Upgrades for your activity beyond reaching Premier 1K status. Learn more
Global Premier Upgrades will be deposited at the time they are earned, and will be valid through the end of the following Premier program year.

Once 1K requirements are met (100K PQMs/120 PQSs, $15K PQDs, 4 UA segments if required)
100K PQMs/120 PQSs .. 2 RPUs (in addition to 2 RPUs for Plat) plus 6 GPUs
125K PQMs/150 PQSs .. 1 GPU ...... Total 4 RPUs + 7 GPUs
150K PQMs/180 PQSs .. 1 GPU ...... Total 4 RPUs + 8 GPUs
175K PQMs/210 PQSs .. 1 GPU ...... Total 4 RPUs + 9 GPUs
200K PQMs/240 PQSs .. 1 GPU ...... Total 4 RPUs + 10 GPUs
etc

If you earn a level with PQMs or PQSs, you can earn the next level with either. But if you earn a level with one, you can not re-earn that level with the other. So if you earn 150 PQS before 125 PQMs, you will not earn anything once achieving 125 PQMs, But upon earning either 150K PQMs or 180 PQSs, you will earn another GPU.

If you passed a threshold without meeting all the requires, such as PQDs, once you make all the requirements, all the deferred instruments will be earned.

Question: If I get to 150 PQS but not 125,000 PQM, will I get any additional instruments under the new system?

To get anything beyond the 2 RPUs for Plat, you need to make 1K. In making 1K, you will get 2 RPUs, 6 GPUs. After making 1K, every 25K PQMs or 30 PQS, you get 1 2 GPUs. No more RPUs

if I remember correctly, you get an additional GPU for PQMs/PQS exceeding 1K requirements at every 25K PQMs/30 PQSs. That is, you will get 7 GPUs and 4 RPUs at 125K PQMs and 15K PQDs.

1 2 GPUs and no additional RPUs (starting in 2019) after getting the 1K allotment at 100K PQMs/120 PQS and 15PQDs

Yes, I think your interpretation is correct, 7 GPU and 4 RPU total if reaching 150 PQS and 15k PQD, even if not reaching 125k PQM.

At 120 PQS and 15k PQD, 6 GPU will be given. At 150 PQS or 125k PQM (whichever first), 1 more GPU will be given. I do know at 125k PQM a GPU is given, but I can only assume an additional one would not be given if also reaching 150 PQS without reaching 150k PQM.

The have been two items of confusion in recent postings
first, I mistakenly wrote 2 GPUs per 25K PQMs/30 PQS, that is wrong, it is just 1 -- my error
Second, the OP has already received 2 RPUs for passing the Plat threshold, so there will on be 2 additional RPUs for making 1K.

It was unclear if the OP would make 1K (with 100K PQMs/130PQS and $15K PQD) prior to achieving 150PQS, so the question was unclear if the query was achieving 150 PQS already as a 1K or of that was the point they would make 1K.

This lead to multiple confusing answers.

Trying to summarize
Making / requalifying as Plat -- 2 RPUs
Making / requalifying as 1K -- 2 RPUs and 6 GPUs
Ater making / requalifying 1K -- 1 GPU per 25K PQM / 30 PQS (these threshold are joint 125K/150. 150K/180, ... either works)

If 1K is delayed, such as due to PQDs, once you meet ALL the 1K requirements any delayed instruments will be posted even the individual is well beyond various PQM.PQS thresholds

If someone makes 125K PQM prior to achieving $15K PQD, would they get the 1 extra GPU retroactive for the 125K milestone once they make 1K?

For example if PQD is met while at 130K PQM, would 7 GPUs be awarded? Or 6 and then 1 additional at 150K?

you will get the extra GPU when you meet all the criteria ... so yes, 7 in your scenario
