New way to earn UA MP PQP in 2024


Aug 17, 2016
UA have announced that it will be easier next year to earn PQP using its cobranded Chase credit cards. You will be able to earn 25 PQP per $500. This should make it easier to gain/retain status on UA for those of us lucky enough to have a US credit card.

Earn Premier status easier through card spend​

Here are the changes we’re making in 2024 to help you earn more PQP on United MileagePlus credit cards issued by Chase*:

  • Cardmembers will now earn 25 PQP for every $500 in qualifying card spend on eligible MileagePlus credit cards. At this new rate, Cardmembers can earn PQP faster and more frequently through qualifying purchases on their card.
  • All card-earned PQP will now count toward each status level, including the PQP-only requirement for Premier 1K® status*.
  • We’re increasing the total PQP amount you can earn annually with the United ClubSM Infinite Card. In 2024, you can earn up to 10,000 PQP from qualifying purchases on your United Club Infinite Card, up from 8,000 PQP in 2023.
  • We’re removing the annual cap of 15,000 PQP that you can earn from qualifying spend across multiple eligible United MileagePlus credit cards issued by Chase.

That makes UA a desirable program for me and a Chase United credit card a desirable card, though having said that, if my calculations are correct, that would require $200K a year spent to earn the 10K PQP needed for Gold Elite if depending on spending alone.
