Premier Platinum Value?
I would appreciate opinions on the following:
I am presently Premier Gold with United and based on the balance of travel I have planned for the balance of the year, anticipate I will end up with about 68,000 - 70,000 PQM, some 5,000-7,000 PQM short of Platinum. I can purchase the extra PQMs that I need for about 11.15 cents per mile or in my case, about $600.00-$800.00 to bridge the gap. I do anticipate flying United next year somewhere between 75,000 and 100,000 miles so the higher status would be nice. What is your opinion of the value of the higher status and if you were me would you pay the extra in order to obtain the next level?
Your thoughts and opinions are appreciated and if this topic has been "beat to death" already I apologize for once again bringing it up.
Thanks in advance for your help.
