Free United Premier Executive Status Just for Registering?

This probably won’t work for most members. But it might, and it’ll be about two weeks before we know whether it work. And the offer expires June 30th, so you need to register now, it takes just a second, so why not try?

The MileMaven blog points to a United Mileage Plus offer for free 90 days of Premier Executive Status. I’m guessing it’s targeted, but we’ll see. No status matching where you have to show your elite level and activity with another carrier. Just free.

If this works, the status should be reflected on your account within two weeks.

  1. fwiw, I signed up for this on advice of your blog. This year, I haven’t yet made it to 25k miles (Year to date Elite Qualifying Miles (EQM): 21,989) but I have a trip planned that will get me over the limit on the 30th of December. I certainly didn’t make the mark last year (lifetime is only 25,492).

    The strange thing… I still have status. Definitely not complaining, but we’re well past the 90 day mark. I expected to lose the status at the end of September. Might be a glitch? It’ll likely reset on January 1 anyway. Thanks for the heads up!
