Earning Premier qualifying credit with your co-branded MileagePlus credit card
For the 2021 program year, MileagePlus members who are also primary UnitedSM MileagePlus Chase Cardmembers are eligible to earn Premier qualifying points (PQP) based on their annual credit card spend.
  • New in 2021 Earn toward Premier 1K status: Members can now apply PQP earned through co-branded MileagePlus credit cards toward Premier 1K status. Cardmembers must meet the Premier qualifying flight (PQF) requirement for 1K status. Cardmembers with the UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Card and UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Business Card will continue to be able to apply the card-earned PQP to Premier 1K status without having to meet the PQF requirement.
  • Earn up to 1,000 PQP: The UnitedSM Explorer Card, UnitedSM Explorer Business Card, United ClubSM Business Card, United MileagePlus Awards Card, United MileagePlus Card with annual fee, UnitedSM Business Card, and United MileagePlus Business Card earn 500 PQP for every $12,000 in card spend, up to 1,000 PQP in a calendar year.
  • Earn up to 3,000 PQP: The United MileagePlus Select Card, United ClubSM Infinite Card, United ClubSM Card, and United QuestSM Card earn 500 PQP for every $12,000 in card spend, up to 3,000 PQP in a calendar year.
  • Earn up to 10,000 PQP: The UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Card and UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Business Card earn 500 PQP for every $12,000 in card spend, up to 10,000 PQP in a calendar year.
  • Maximum of 5,000 PQP: The maximum number of PQP that can be earned on eligible card spend in a calendar year is 5,000 PQP per MileagePlus account. PQP earned from the UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Card and UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Business Card are excluded from this cap.
  • The United GatewaySM Card and United MileagePlus Card with no annual fee do not earn PQP for card spend.
  • All eligible Cardmembers must take a minimum of 4 flights on United or United Express to be eligible for Premier status.
  • All PQP earned on eligible card spend and Flex PQP can be applied up to Platinum. For the 2021 program year, Flex PQP will continue to be applied up to Platinum status, while the card-earned PQP can be applied to 1K status if the Cardmember meets the PQF requirement for 1K. Cardmembers with UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Card and UnitedSM Presidential PlusSM Business Card will continue to be able to apply the card-earned PQP to 1K status without having to meet the PQF requirement for 1K.
United TravelBank Cardmembers do not earn PQP for card spend.
The TravelBank card is now the Gateway card

This thread made me go look at my account, and sure enough I'm in the same boat. Have never had a problem with this for all the years I've earned them (PQM or PQP). This year I, too, crossed $12K a month ago, and have not yet seen any posting.

Also -- same as huey_driver, my postings happened at random times last year, so apparently no longer related to statement closing dates.

This is the first calendar year I'm flying (and spending) enough on the Chase card to pay attention to PQP posting, but will confirm- looks like RDMs post within a day after the end of each statement date, the PQPs do not.

1st 500 PQP posted late Jan, 5 days after my statement close date, and 3 days after I crossed $12K YTD spend (my Jan statement only had YTD spend of $11K)

Then 1000 PQP posted late March, only 24h after my YTD spend crossed $36K (a full week before that monthly statement close).

And apparently I skipped the $24K threshold outright. 🤷‍♂️

So PQPs have so far have not followed any discernable pattern of:
- specific day of month,
- number of days after statement date
- number of days after transaction total hits a $12K threshold.

My PQPs from the card posted between 2 and 4 days after crossing a $12K threshold last year. No relation to the card closing date. 2,000 PQPs so four thresholds.

The latest in my situation is I tried the MP messaging option after having no luck calling and emailing both MP and Chase. The latest suggestion is to call MP again (third time) and request a conference call with Chase. Not sure if MP or I have to set up the conference call. I am nearing the next $12K threshold so I need to get this resolved. Sounds like I am not alone. UA/MP need to fix this, whatever the problem happens to be if it is a widespread issue.

Maybe they do it in batches. I also got my first posting on the 4th.

Is anyone else getting more PQP from credit card than they expected, IME the PQP posts a few weeks after redeemable miles. Suddenly see an unexpected extra 500 PQP.

Confirming it still seems random/batched.

Another 500 PQP posted yesterday (4/22)

Based on transaction history, this time it was 11 days after crossing the last $12K threshold, and 2 days before statement closing date.

Same experience. For the first bonus it took a little over a month to post. and well after the statement cycle date Second bonus posted on 4/22 like yours about a week after passing the threshold and before the statement cutoff date. It does look like it is both random and batched. So I had two bonuses posted during the current cycle though I passed the thresholds during different cycles.

Seems like from other posts in another thread that this is the regular CC spend PQP, the bonus/promo PQP is still coming.

PQP Earn on multiple UA-MP CC?

My understanding is that you can earn 500 PQP per $12k spend (max: 1000 PQP) - is that per CARD or per MP-Account?

I have some large expenses coming up and thought about spreading over my 2 MP cards (dont ask why I have 2 - I dont know either)

Max 1K per Explorer card, 3K for the Quest, or 4K for the Club card; max 5K per account. The Presidential Plus card, which hasn't been available for new members in a decade or more, is capped at 10K and excluded from the 5K limit
