The United one I refer to is the one in our 2011 status package-with-card mailing that we received from Mileage Plus. 1) Does status for this promo last until 2013 (after appropriate stays) as does the current Visa Signature Card one? 2) I signed up for both recently. I learned of the Signature card one after signing up for the HH|UA one. Did I create a problem? Most importantly, I'd like to maximize the duration of the status. But if I were to receive the 5,000 HH points for signing up as a Gold, already, that would be quite nice. Thank you.
