Need 3,000 PQPs by Nov 30 to retain United 1K status as part of Fly to the Finish offer. What’s easiest way to get these last PQPs?? Just blow out on a first class flight?

Do nothing and wait for United to extend status


I think ultimately they will extend, but yes, it is risky


You could hedge that risk by status matching to Delta or AA at EOY then trying to status match back to UA if all else fails.

Yeah, but usually you still have to fly a certain amount as part of their status match challenge. May be easier to just get flights on United

In pretty much the same boat, OP. Currently slated to be about 1,500 shy and considering trading up to business on a few upcoming flights to close the gap

Same…need another 1,200. Think I’m just going to bite the bullet, take a vacation day, and book a same day round trip flight in first. Do my best to get as much booze value as I can between the two flights and lounge time in between

Book ticket from united preferred airline. Each economy / prem economy flight segment capped by 750 pqp. It is total miles divided by 5 with csp of 750 per flight. For business and above it is 1500 per flight. Take a flight to Europe or Asia or multicity flights

Also why Nov 30. Is that the deadline?

Got ya.

I am on OPT, with 2 years left. I work for Company A right now, and I am happy with them. Company B applied for my H1b this year and I was selected. They are processing the H1b, but I don’t wanna work there. Can I take the approved H1b to Company A and continue there, without ever working for Company B? Can I work for Company B once the H1b is approved and not got to Company A at all?
