2024 Premier status: same program requirements, easier to earn PQP
We want to stay loyal to our MileagePlus® members because you’ve remained loyal to us. That’s why the Premier® program requirements will not change in 2024. You will not have to earn more Premier qualifying points (PQP) or take more Premier qualifying flights (PQF) to get status. We’re also making it easier to earn PQP with United MileagePlus credit cards issued by Chase.
Jumpstart your PQP balance
We’re giving current Premier members a head start in 2024 with automatic PQP deposits. All members with full Premier status on February 1, 2024, will get extra PQP added to their account. The number of PQP is based on status level.
*Terms and conditions:
PQP deposit will be based on the Premier status level held as of February 1, 2024. Members with trial status are not eligible to receive the PQP deposit. PQP deposit amounts subject to change.
Chase is not responsible for the provision of, or failure to provide, the 2024 MileagePlus program year stated benefits and services. PQP earned on eligible credit card spend will be awarded within 6 weeks of meeting the spend qualifications.
All members, including Cardmembers, must take a minimum of 4 flights on United or United Express to be eligible for Premier status, including Premier 1K.
Card-earned PQP amount is subject to an annual cap that varies by card.
First Hawaiian Bank PQP-eligible cards include the United® Credit Card, Private Banking United Credit Card and United World Elite Business Card.
First Hawaiian Bank is not responsible for the provision of, or failure to provide, the 2024 MileagePlus program year stated benefits and services. PQP earned on eligible credit card spend will be awarded within 6 weeks of meeting the spend qualifications.
Miles accrued, awards, and benefits issued are subject to change and are subject to the rules of the United MileagePlus® program, including without limitation the Premier® program (the "MileagePlus Program"), which are expressly incorporated herein. Please allow 6-8 weeks after completed qualifying activity for miles to post to your account. United® may change the MileagePlus Program including, but not limited to, rules, regulations, travel awards and special offers or terminate the MileagePlus Program at any time and without notice. United and its subsidiaries, affiliates and agents are not responsible for any products or services of other participating companies and partners. Taxes and fees related to award travel are the responsibility of the member. Bonus award miles, award miles and any other miles earned through non-flight activity do not count toward qualification for Premier status unless expressly stated otherwise. The accumulation of mileage or Premier status or any other status does not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to the MileagePlus Program. All calculations made in connection with the MileagePlus Program, including without limitation with respect to the accumulation of mileage and the satisfaction of the qualification requirements for Premier status, will be made by United Airlines® and MileagePlus in their discretion and such calculations will be considered final.

Updates to the 2023 MileagePlus Premier program
Premier status qualification requirements
Whether you travel hundreds of miles each week, or a few thousand miles multiple times a year, we’re creating an even better MileagePlus Premier program designed to provide valuable benefits for all Premier members. Our 2023 Premier program gives you more opportunities to achieve status and elevate your travel experience.
Qualification requirements for Premier status
In addition to flying a minimum of 4 flight segments on United or United Express, you’ll need to earn a combination of Premier qualifying flights (PQF) and Premier qualifying points (PQP) or a certain number of PQP to qualify for each Premier status level through January 31, 2025, based on your activity between January 1 and December 31, 2023.
PQF = Premier qualifying flights | PQP = Premier qualifying points
New features and changes to the MileagePlus Premier program in 2023
For the past two years, we adjusted our MileagePlus Premier program requirements to reflect the frequency of travel during uncertain times. With travel now in full swing, our standard requirements are returning. But we are giving you a boost and adding new qualifying activities to our 2023 MileagePlus Premier program.
Jumpstart your PQP balance
We’re giving you a head start on your status goals to make retaining or upgrading status easier. In early 2023, we will automatically deposit PQP into MileagePlus accounts based on the 2023 Premier status you reached at the end of 2022. All members with Premier status as of February 1, 2023, except for those that hold Trial status, will receive PQP deposits applied to their 2023 balances, according to their status level. Eligible members will enjoy this head start toward status in 2024 as well.
Qualifying for award tickets
An exciting change we are making in 2023 is that when you use MileagePlus miles for award flights operated by United or United Express, you are now eligible to earn Premier qualifying credits. Eligible award flights will help you achieve status with 1 PQP earned per 100 miles redeemed, as well as 1 PQF earned per United or United Express flight. PQP and PQF from qualifying award flights will count toward earning all status levels, whether through both PQF and PQP or PQP only thresholds. PQP from award flights will also count towards earning incremental PlusPoints for eligible members.
