This is How Distance Flown Can Be Still Very Important To Earning United Premier...

United has completely overhauled the way Premier status is earned and has increased the spending thresholds for each status level too but, despite its best efforts to shift MileagePlus towards being a revenue reward program, the airline hasn't actually managed to prevent the distance travelers fly from having a significant effect on the status they can earn.

Huge News: United Is Eliminating Old Upgrades & Introducing “PlusPoints”

United Airlines has today announced that it is replacing Regional Premier Upgrades (RPUs) and Global Premier Upgrades (GPUs) with a new upgrade benefit called "PlusPoints".

United Is Selling Miles Again…And This Time They May Be Worth A Closer Look

United is back with another short-term mileage sale in which it's offering MileagePlus members bonuses of up to 85% through 27 August.

AVOID: United’s New Points Sale Is Terrible

United Airlines has launched its latest points sale/promotion and its one that just about everyone should be avoiding. This is one of the weakest promotions United dares to put out and is only worth considering if you absolutely have to top up and account.

FLASH SALE: Buy United Miles & Get A 100% Bonus

United has launched a flash mileage sale which lasts through to the end of the day on Thursday June 13th and, as the sale is offering the highest bonus we generally see United publish and as United has increased the number of miles you can buy to 175,000, this may be one of the better times to top up an account if the math works for you.
