We've made changes to the United MileagePlus® program, including the way you earn and use PlusPoints:
We're extending PlusPoints
All PlusPoints expiring on or before January 31, 2021, will be extended 180 days beyond their current expiration date, giving you more time to use them.
It’s easier to earn status and receive PlusPoints upgrades in 2020
We’ve reduced the amount of PQP and PQF you need to earn to achieve Premier status for the 2021 program year by 50%. Once you earn Platinum or 1K status, you’ll be eligible to receive PlusPoints, our flexible, innovative upgrade benefit. And we’re the only U.S. global airline loyalty program that offers unlimited incremental earning of upgrades; once you’ve earned 1K, you’re still eligible for 20 additional PlusPoints for every 3,000 PQP beyond 18,000 PQP.
The best upgrade benefits are getting better
We’re also expanding our industry-leading Skip Waitlist option across long-haul international regions for our 1K members. That way you’ll now have more options than ever to use PlusPoints however you like.
