BCG1 I flew AC a lot this year for a project which was 2k miles each way but the spend doesn't count towards united PQD so I did the foreign address workaround

I never signed up for anything and my spend was pretty low...

I am 1k

Wtf

Promo didn't require signup IIRC you were automatically enrolled

A1 my spend was under 10k tho... I have a foreign address to not have to meet the spend 😏

D2 knows what's up

How do you maintain 1K with spending less than 10k?

That sounds like the coding for spending miles, not receiving

BCG1 using address outside US - spend isn't mandatory for those who are "residents" in other countries. Little proof needed

D3 not sure what u mean

When you book an award ticket, it will say Saver Award (12500), etc.

Maybe it glitched and gave me miles for one of my award flights used

But how do you get to 1K requirements without spending big money on tickets? All 500 mile flights for cheap?
