I have12k pqd on United, but won't have enough pqs/ pqm to qualify for platinum before 12/31. Has anyone been able to get the pqs/pqm waived? I have enough pqd for 1k, I only want them to give me plat

No. PQDs aren’t really meant as a as a qualifying mechanism, just a safeguard against gaming the other metrics

Complain or volunteer your seat on a plane. Mine typically come from complaining, usually $150-$200 per flight but giving up your seat is typically $400-$800 per flight!

Mileage run is really your only option...they might gift you status if you’re like 200miles short but when that is unlikely

They may give you a very expensive chance to buy up, it will cost much more than a mileage run but you don't have to sit on the plane

@D1 Unfortunately I only have 45k miles and 60 segments. I doubt even with a mileage run that I can reach plat. Would calling and saying I'll fly AA or Delta the rest of the year do anything?

Your options are probably 1) buy the PQM/PQS or 2) take more plane trips. Having 12 PQD doesn’t really mean that much. If you call they might offer you a status challenge, but it doesn’t sound like that will help you right now.

They might give you points for complaining but not status

Fly the miles, but honestly platinum isn’t really worth much more than gold. Odds of a upgrade are low as a platinum. I’m 1k and I’m under 50%

Mileage run and book first class with connections. I did a run from Chicago to Seattle via Houston all first class and got 11k pqm in one day. Also if you have vouchers, that will cover the cost, my mileage run only cost $150 with vouchers. The key is to book two one way flights as you can only use one voucher per trip but breaking it up, you can use two and the cost is the same :)

D2 how do you get these vouchers?

Thanks D2!

👍

I used $1700 in vouchers last summer for my family’s vacation.

Hi! I’m a senior graduating with a B.S. in Psychology with a specialization in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience and zoology minor. I’ve changed career paths quite a few times from initially being premed, to possibly prelaw, and then I decided on neuropsychology. I’m graduating early with the intent to travel and explore other cultures and experiences before I officially enter the work force and start my career but I’m no longer sold on a PHD and being stuck at a desk. Any advice?
