    Is anyone aware of other means to earn SWU's other than the annual EXP qualification, and the 2013 Elite Rewards? I received a SWU early this month after crossing the 75K threshold, and submitting the request. I recently received an additional SWU after completing the fist half of an international (LAX-LHR) trip that was booked in business class. I was understandably delighted when I saw the additional SWU, but was not aware that they could be earned other than the more traditional methods listed above.

    I'm sure that marketing or sales can issue them for various reasons, but those aren't usually things an individual can go after to get them.

    This doesn't really apply to your case, but to answer your question you also earn them at 2 million miles, and every million afterwards. If you live outside the US you get them at 1M.

    How many do you get at 2MM in addition to what you earn for being EXP?

    Another thought - it's entirely possible the addition of the SWU was a mistake. :)

    I got four, but that was some years back. Don't know what they give today.
