United currently is offering targeted cardholders bonus Premier Qualifying Points (PQP) on credit card spending through June 30, 2022. You'll want to register as soon as possible to maximize your bonus through this promotion. The first deadline is coming up on April 30, 2022.

What Are United PQP?

For those not familiar, there are two types of points you can earn through the United MileagePlus program: MileagePlus miles and Premier Qualifying Points (PQP). MileagePlus miles are redeemed on flights and upgrades, while PQP help you earn United Premier elite status — along with Premier Qualifying Flights (PQF).

The United Premier elite status requirements are as follows:


When flying United, you'll earn 1 PQP for every eligible dollar spent on airfare (including carrier-imposed surcharges).

  • Returns and refunds will be deducted from purchase amounts.
  • Promotional PQPs will apply toward Premier® status tiers up to and including Premier 1K.

Our Take

This is a really good promotion to take advantage of, as long as you're targeted. Of course, you'll have to reach the minimum spending limits to earn the bonus PQPs, which not everyone will be able to hit. If moving up the United elite status levels is important for you, then you'll probably want to work out how to arrange some additional spending for this promotion. But check if you've been selected first.
