    Can I request my status be updated from member to silver when I reach 20,000 PQM then gold when I reach 50,000 before my year is up?

    You can request it, but it won't do you much good. :( at 20K PQM, you're still 20% short of the goal. If you're at 24,865, for example, you'll have more of a leg to stand on.

    United will make you a Silver member as soon as the miles post that put you over 25K, and likewise for the other thresholds. The status is always valid until the end of the next calendar year plus a grace period -- so no matter when you earn Silver in 2012, you are Gold through the end of 2013 (really the end of January 2014).

    Just to be sure, it's 38,000 PQM and not RDM or Lifetime miles? I'd call up to let them know.

    Also, have you flown on 4 UA metal segments or do you carry a UA credit card? If not you don't actually have UA status yet.

    Then it is time to call in and find out why your account is not properly reflecting the status.

    If the call doesn't work, would you mind letting us know the result? This is something I have not seen posted before, so I'm curious as to how it works out. It also appears that they may owe you some retroactive Premier Silver mileage bonuses.
