Same thing happened to me.
Oct 2, EWR-MSY
Purchased 2:30am for 7:50am departure.
Didn't even bother checking upgrade list after purchase as list was 25+ long, IIRC, and no seats in F available.

Sat down at window, exit row.
A passenger stops at my row and hands me a boarding pass with my name and issued for 3A.
TYVM.

Premier Gold here. Was on IAD-TPA flight on 10/8, and upgrade did not clear. But today, TPA-IAD flight cleared right at T-24. Just another two datapoints.

SFO-SEA and then SEA-ORD Saturday night as a Gold. I know upgrades out of SFO are elusive but I'm batting 1.000* on United.

J9 PN9 PZ0 and booked 2/12 on an E75 with 26 hours to go. No CPU yet for this 1K... this new random "no upgrades" inventory management is just silly

(And I am shocked, shocked to report that I cleared at the T-24 sweep - now J5 PN5 PZ0 )

Got cleared for the 2.5 hr flight to IAH last week at T-24. Got cleared for the 30 min flight to DEN tomorrow morning at T-96. Just got notified of my confirmation for the 2.5 flight back from IAH next Monday at about T-144.

Saw this on PHX-SFO last week . . . booked 9/20 in F and no upgrades until T-24. Which is when I cleared. While it's frustrating to watch UA hold back on the sweeps, I've had pretty good luck on these.

Yeah, I don't mind it that much, it's just kind of silly when I know they would outrageously lucky to sell even two more of the 10 empty seats

Cleared on award ticket EWR to IAH but my final destination is SCL. Of course no CPU for that leg. Charter about 8 hours after check in as I wasn't in the upgrade list before that.

Lowly Silver

I just got silver recently. Told my wife not to expect much. Flew on Thanksgiving day IAH-DSM and returned early Saturday. got upgraded both times. Not too many frequent travelers on a holiday I guess.
