    I've made a few; I know others have as well. Why not a thread which collects all of them so people can have them readily available?

    Here are the ones I've created (available from the Chrome Store or direct download for GreaseMonkey users):
    • United.com Expert Mode (fare buckets)
    • United Receipt Parser (Useful for PQDs)
    • Searching for upgradeable fares on United.com

    Others I'm aware of:
    The UA Site Fare Evaluator Userscript
    Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey script to highlight R/RN bucket availability

    Feel free to share more below and I'll keep this thread updated. If there's a way to wikify it I'm cool with that, too.

    Note that Chrome recently changed its rules so most users will need to pull scripts from their store to use them.

    Good idea for the thread. It has reminded me to go fix my script that changes all the defaults on the advanced search page to the values I use most often. Once I get that done I'll update this post. :)

    2015 MileagePlus RDM Calculator

    I wrote a Userscript that will help calculate the number of miles an itinerary will earn under the 2015 program rules. It adds a link to view earnings to all fare search pages, displays earnings on the Review Trip Itinerary page, and displays earnings on the View Current Reservation page.

    Flight Search Page:

    Review Trip Itinerary Page:
    [​IMG]

    View Current Reservation Page:
    [​IMG]

    PLEASE NOTE: The fares displayed on the search pages include all taxes and fees, so the mileage earnings displayed will be higher than what you will actually earn in reality. The fare basis and taxes are not broken down on search pages so there is no way to show the real value here. When you arrive at the Review Trip Itinerary page, the base fare and taxes/fees are broken out so the calculation can be made correctly. The same is true on the View Current Reservation page: the values are accurate.

    KNOWN ISSUES
    None at the moment. [​IMG]

    Download The Script
    For Firefox users with Greasemonkey, download via direct link: Click Here
    Current Version: 0.1.24

    For Chrome users, download via the Chrome Web Store: Click Here
    Current Version: 0.0.13

    Please let me know if when someone finds a bug.

    Many thanks for your time and effort. This will show us what the advantages of the old and new programs are, and it will enable us to make expenditures that fit each person's circumstances.
