United MileagePlus Premier Qualification
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: Jun 20, 2013)
United MileagePlus has followed Delta's lead and introduced a spending component to the FFP???s elite status program.
Starting Jan. 1 2014, MileagePlus members will be required to spend up to a required amount of Premier qualifying dollars (PQD), along with Premier qualifying miles (PQM) or Premier qualifying segments (PQS) in order to earn elite status.
The following Premier qualifying dollars must be spent:
- $2,500 for Silver
- $5,000 for Gold
- $7,500 for Platinum
- $10,000 for 1K
Just like PQM and PQS, PQD will be credited to the member who travels regardless of who purchases the flight.
The PQD requirement is defined as the base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges for flights flown by United Airlines, United Express or Copa Airlines and flights operated by a Star Alliance or MileagePlus partner airline issued on a United ticket (ticket number starting with 016) and Economy Plus purchases.
A minimum of four paid segments on United, United Express or Copa Airlines is required for any Premier level.
In 2014, the PQD requirement for Premier Silver, Gold and Platinum qualification will be waived for members who spend at least $25,000 in net purchases using a MileagePlus Chase co-branded credit card issued in the United States. There is no PDQ waiver for Premier 1K qualification.

These changes apply to 2014 qualifying activity for status in 2015 and do not affect your 2013 qualifying activity for status in 2014.
