Will Million Milers get PlusPoints?


Yes. Members eligible to receive upgrades with their Million Miler status will receive PlusPoints in place of Regional Premier Upgrades and Global Premier Upgrades.

United years back promised in writing all Million Milers would get "2 x Regional Upgrades a year for life" on the UA website, and later reneged on that promise. So not sure what exactly they refer to above? Does anyone know?

2MM flyers who do not otherwise qualify for Platinum will receive 40 PlusPoints.
3MM+ flyers who do not otherwise qualify for 1K will receive 280 PlusPoints.

This is the same as it's been in the past, applying the UA conversion factor of 1 RPU = 20 PlusPoints and 1 GPU = 40 PlusPoints.
