Question United Elite Prepaid Travel Card - Available?

In past years, United has offered an "elite prepaid travel card" that allowed you to purchase Mileage Plus status based on the amount of the card. Buying a $20,000, for example, got you automatic 1K status (plus upgrade certificates etc).

Their website indicated that the cards would be offered again this March (see ), but I've been unable to find out anything.

Anyone know if it will be offered?

Thanks.

Unhappy No Prepaid Travel Card this year?

The web page united.com/prepaidtravel no longer refers to a Prepaid Travel Card.

Did the prepaid card w/ elite status not return in 2007???

No sign of it as best I can tell from searching this forum and Da Bomb...

Surprising; you wouldn't think it would take too many sales to cover the costs of running the program

United Prepaid card

It seems like the program morphed into something called United PassPlus from what I understand. Check it out if that's what you're interested in.
