    I'm a 1K and was not eligible.

    This is not really a good promo -- the fare classes are very high. And I would like to know if anyone got targeted and what status they hold.

    Got this via email on Dec 7. I'm a UA 1P. United may see that I'm only halfway to renewing my UA 1P status, because the other half of the miles are in my linked CO account. But that's the only thing I can think of for being targeted.

    Also, my wife, a 2P who already made 2P again, was not eligible.

    If the accounts are linked, UA considers them both for combined status.

    But does the promotion and marketing department have the same level of integration/data. Maybe not...

    Who knows. But the status on MP should be based on your combined EQM earnings, and I would expect marketing to go to that database, not have a separate database of just UA EQMs around. But one single data point is no indication that current status or difference of current EQMs to last year even plays a role in the targeting of this promo. They might as well target people who's MP username starts with "ex" :) (paging "Ex-LAX" to confirm this theory).

    I think this is only when it works against your favor, like when giving 6 SWUs in 12/11 when passing 1K combined instead of 1/12! :mad:

    But it was already confirmed that they'll extend the SWUs earned in 2011, so while I earned them a few weeks ahead of schedule (due to a rebooking into Y causing my carefully crafted plan to fall apart), I am not too worried.
