We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate in our Premier® Status Match Challenge promotion, offering top-tier flyers of many other airlines a comparable status in the MileagePlus program. This offer is valid for requests received between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2016.
Customers who have Star Alliance™ Silver or Gold status are excluded from this offer.
If you meet the criteria to participate in the Premier status match offer, your account will be upgraded for 90 days to Premier Silver, Premier Gold or Premier Platinum status based on the level you hold in your current frequent flyer program. For example:
To keep the matched Premier status for the remainder of the 2016 program year, you will need to earn a certain number of Premier qualifying miles (PQM) or Premier qualifying segments (PQS) on flights operated by United or United Express® within a 90-day Offer Period.* The number of PQM or PQS you must earn depends on the Premier status level you are matched to in MileagePlus.
To be considered for Premier status through this promotion, please complete this MileagePlus Premier Status Match Challenge form. We will send you an email to let you know if your request is approved.
Please allow 7-14 business days for a response and for your account to be upgraded.
Terms and conditions: Offer valid for qualifying paid travel completed within 90 days from time of account upgrade (the "Offer Period"). Participation does not guarantee Premier status. Matched status will expire after 90 days, unless the matched level or a higher level of Premier status is earned or awarded prior to that date. Valid on flights operated by United and United Express. Not valid on United-marketed codeshare flights operated by other carriers. Flights must be posted to the MileagePlus account in order to qualify. MileagePlus award travel does not qualify for this offer. Class-of-service bonus Premier qualifying miles (PQM) and Premier qualifying segments (PQS) will count toward this offer; however, other bonus PQM/PQS, promotional PQM/PQS, and/or credit card PQM do not count toward this offer. Regional Premier Upgrades and Global Premier Upgrades will not be awarded based on matched status or status reached through the MileagePlus Premier Status Match challenge. Other restrictions may apply. Offer subject to change without notice. Miles accrued, awards, and benefits issued are subject to change and are subject to the rules of the United MileagePlus program. The accumulation of mileage or Premier status does not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to the program. United, its subsidiaries, affiliates and agents are not responsible for any products and services of other participating companies and partners.
