Hi folks, I need to get the Club Infinite Card, which UA says they will give up to 10,000PQP spend credit:
https://www.united.com/ual/en/us/fly...r/qualify.html
and the attached photo.

up to 10,000 PQP

However, when you go to apply for the card, they say 8,000 PQP!
https://www.united.com/en/us/fly/pro...dit-cards.html

SO...how do we reconcile this? Is there some secret different link to apply to get the 10,000? Do I apply for the card (8k) and hope they actually give the 10k in the end? I don't trust they really will. Thanks!

It changed 1 January 2024 for all new and existing Infinite cards. Just out of date website.
It will be 10K.

Timing of started PQPs?

Does anyone remember what the timing of the starter PQPs were last year? Wondering if the 2024 half-sized starter PQP's will be on the smae type of timing. Purely curiosity

Last year's starter PQP was posted on my end on February 2, 2023.

No specific date has been publicly announced by UA, but should be sometime in February. The basis of the starter PQP will be determined based on member status as of Feb 1, to account for any January tier adjustments.

It may happen on Feb 1, or another date, but last three years have been all over the place.

The Jumpstart bonus for 2024 are 250,500,750 and 1250. That must be something else
