    I earned the first Special Dividend with US Air so I am able to nominate someone to Trial Preferred Silver Status for free. So if anyone knows that they will be flying US metal (soon and at least a 7500 run) then send me a PM and I will consider giving you the nomination. I will also post this onto FT. I would hate this to go to waste but all my friends fly UA................

    I agree, very nice offer. I am sure you will find someone who will very much need and appreciate the status!

    I guess I should clarify that it doesn't necessarily need to be a 7500 mile adventure but you need to fly at least the 7500 within 90 days AND on US metal in order for the status to continue for the full calendar year.

    I love adding new memberships to my collection, but I almost never fly them (it would have come in handy 3 months ago). Hopefully you find a good use for it.

    Just want to add my gratitude for your generosity. I fly USAirways but not enough to justify taking up your offer.

    Same here... +1 for a great offer but I don't think I'll be flying US metal nearly that much any time soon. And even if I did just to keep the status, I probably wouldn't fly with them afterwards enough to justify having it :)

    I have nominated a member from FT to Silver. Thank goodness that I got all those emails before FT pulled and deleted my post for being inappropriate. I can't keep up with all the rules on these forums. Geesh! Try to do something nice and bam...slap me in the face.

    Nice thought, but sadly of little use to me.

    My wife and I each have a trail silver nomination to give out as well...I think we have a couple family members in mind (if not, you may see me back here offering them up too!), but does anyone know if they expire? I always assumed they would be good for 90 days, but I didn't know if they expired at the end of the year, or expired by 2/28/12 (the end of the program year in which I earned the nomination)...anyone know anything definitive about this?

    Yeah somehow I am constantly surprised at its relevance. It has been quite a useful clip at work lately with a new boss....

    If only I could find someone willing to nominate my wife to silver. I never quite make it to Chairman's so I can never do so myself. Oh well. :) I've wanted a UA 3P for a while so I could switch allegiance but still start out on E+ but now that's not even possible for 2012.

    you don't need to make Chairman's in order to nominate someone......the Special Dividends will do that for you. At 35K you get your first and then again at 60K. I'm currently at 55K so just short of the second award.

    Two points:

    At 35K, it's a nomination to a silver trial, not a no-strings silver nomination. That's somewhat meaningless as my wife won't be flying enough in any 90 day period (and she's not about to do mileage runs). But she does fly on her own often enough that saving the checked bag fees would help.

    At 60K, where do you see that you get a silver nomination (trial or standard nomination)? According to the info I see, at 60K you only get to add a spouse/partner to club membership, and a wine discount and FTD certificate. The full silver nomination comes at 85K, not 60K.

    At any rate, I'm not going to make Platinum this year and will struggle for gold, so be it 60K or 85K it's not going to happen.

    Katie (and others),

    I am a former USA Silver, but lost my status in Feb due to business travel cutbacks. I'm starting a new job in a week as a consultant and should have no problem re-qualifying to keep silver this year. If anyone has a free silver nominationleft to gift away...I am very interested in finding one! My first reservation w/ the new job has me sitting in row 30, so I'm missing the old special treatment already!

    Please let me know,

    William

    When you get the ability to grant Silver or a Silver trial, is that something you have to do within the year (or Feb of the following year), or very quickly like 90 days, or you can hand it out after a much longer period , like 18 months?

    this isn't really a request thread. you can purchase a silver trial. two years ago, around this time, US even gave away silver trials. maybe you'll get lucky that way.
