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

?
Yes, bonus PQP do not count toward the per-card PQP limits.

I got an offer to "spend $15,500 in purchases with your United Business Card between July 1 and September 30, 2022." I have done this, but the promo PQP doesn't yet show up. The email says 4-6 weeks upon reaching the goal, but it's been 10. Who would I contact?

I don't have the same promotion, but are you sure the email explicitly says 4-6 weeks after completing the goal?

IME, most of the promos I've received like this are rewarded 4-6 weeks after the overall promo end date, not the spend date, unless there are multiple "tiers" of bonus that can be earned throughout the promo period. IME, the "one-and-done" type promos usually don't post until after the overall promo window.


In either case, your primary contact for this would be Chase Cardmember Service. It's going to be impossible to explain what you need to their phone agents, so I'd recommend just starting with their online contact form and include a link to the promo URL, and reference the dates you expected to receive the promo.

And IME, even those arent always accurate. I think the promo I had (related to Japan Olympics) posted after the 4-6 week period mentioned, maybe 8 or 10 weeks. In fact, forgot about it until I saw it posted.

Would anyone happen to know how My Chase Plan affects the purchase threshold on PQP earning?

I put a few big ticket expenses this month onto My Chase Plans because I figured, well, why not? The plans are no interest, and Chase was offering no fees as part of a promotion, so I went for it.

With the total balance, I should pretty easily hit $12,000 in spend to get 500 PQP, though with the My Chase Plan, some of my payments are now pushed off into next year (I went for 6-month plans.) So even though I will likely end up charging more than $12,000 on the card by the end of the year, I will not have paid all of it off by the end of the year if I stick to the current My Chase Plan schedule, and that could mean that I pay off less than $12,000 by Dec. 31.

Will I still get the PQP? I'll pay off the My Chase Plans early if the answer is 'no.' The extra 500 PQP could make or break whether I hit Plat for next year.

PQP is based on credit card spend (purchases) in the calendar year, not on how much you pay toward your card balance in a calendar year.

Hi there! I've tried searching for this answer but no luck thus far. I'm looking into getting a Chase CC that provides PQP but am curious about the earning increments. Is it only at $12k spend you get 500 PQP or, for example, if you spend $6k you can earn 250 PQP? Thanks!

Theyre cliffs, so you have to spend to each threshold. You can get 1,000 if you do $24 K or 500 if you do $12 K. Below $12K you get zero. That said, I got a 625 bonus offer this year for extra spending.

I have the MP Explorer card, and just got credited for 500 PQP twice. I'm over $12k in spend on the card but know I'm nowhere near $24k. Both say "PQP Earn Explorer Card" but they were credited on different days (10/20 and 10/23), so it's not an exact duplicate.

The only other thing I can think of is that I got an offer for 125 PQP for $2500 spend during a certain time period (July to Sept or something - had to choose between that, a $ credit, or 2500 miles or something), which I expect to get (and should be credited fairly soon).

Main question is am I missing something and could this be correct? If it's not correct, what are the chances of it being reversed? Getting these extra PQP could definitely affect me going for Platinum or not.


Thanks.

I just had the same thing happen and I was not eligible for the special PQP offer.

Was this about the right time that you should have gotten 1 x 500 PQP?

If this is pushing you over a qualification threshold, I would be inclined to see if it sticks before counting your chickens, they may claw it back.
