Anyone with United 1k in jeopardy of not meeting the lowered “move the goalpost” PQP targets? Is there a December promotion or do you think United will pivot to extend status to 2023 in the final hour? Ugh, I don’t want lose 1k but can’t justify ~$5,000 in out of pocket expenses / mileage run. Anyone in the same boat?

They literally had PQP campaigns all year and the one is ending tomorrow. I think you could of done those and you would of been fine. I mean, if you had 3 months left, would you spend the 5k, if the answer is yes, just book a first class ticket somewhere. They also don’t care about miles anymore, it’s dollar spend and segments flown

I spent 1600$ out of pocket for flights this past 1.5 months that I would have otherwise not taken just to meet requirements for 1k before the Flight to the Finish promo ends nov 30. For me, it’s worth it for the PlusPoints alone. Hopefully, I can use them on some first class Polaris upgrades in 2022.

5000$ is too steep. If you use those 5k during the next year and spend it on ‘making your travel life better’, you’ll get more back for the buck. Upgrades, buy a better ticket to begin with, maybe a nicer room on vacation, car service where before you would have taken public transport - you don’t have to finish it, but there are a lot of nice things that can be bought with 5k.

This is the obvious answer. Why waste $5k to fly somewhere you don’t want to go? Just spend $5k more next year going somewhere you do want to go and now you don’t have to worry about gaming PlusPoints or any of that garbage.

Thinking of getting a personal AMEX gold for the rewards and intro points.

I don’t really need a credit card per se and I just really wanna be able to accumulate points on my spending that I can use as miles/rewards… however not at the expense of my credit score!
