    Not a match, but a way you can earn status in a shorter period of time?

    I started a new job and I am beginning to fly alot.... If at all possible I would rather not wait until I hit tiers since I know I will get there eventually.

    AA has a 90 day status challenge, does UA do anything similar?

    Yes and no, and, unfortunately, not what you are looking for. UA has what they call status match/challenge, which is exactly what it sounds like: first, they would match your status in another non-*A airline's FF program and then they would challenge you to maintain that status for the balance of the year by completing specified "chores" within 90 days. So, if you are not interested in status match, then there is no option for status challenge because the former is a prerequisite for the latter. All the info about this is here: http://www.united.com/page/article/0,6867,53424,00.html

    If you fly 4 million miles with them, you get lifetime GS status. That sounds like a challenge to me.
