United Airlines Introduces 2024 Premier Status Match Challenge

The promotion called the Premier Status Match Challenge, is designed for top-tier members of other frequent flyer programs. Participants can upgrade to Premier Silver, Gold, or Platinum status in the MileagePlus program for 120 days, depending on their current status with other airlines. 

To retain the matched status through the end of 2024, flyers must meet specific flight and point requirements on United or United Express flights during the 120-day period.

United Airlines' offer is a chance for frequent flyers of Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Alaska Airlines, British Airways, and Qantas to enjoy Premier benefits. 

These include faster check-in, priority boarding, and additional baggage allowances, although access to partner airline lounges and other reciprocal benefits may be limited during the challenge period.

Flyers must earn a set number of flights and points to keep their Premier status beyond the trial period. For Premier Silver, the requirement is four flights and 1,300 points. Premier Gold requires eight flights and 2,600 points, while Premier Platinum needs twelve flights and 4,000 points.

How to Apply? 

Applications for the status match must include a MileagePlus account number, a valid email address linked to that account, and a digital copy of the applicant's current membership card from another airline's frequent flyer program.

United Airlines emphasizes that this offer is not available to members who have participated in a similar status match or received a Premier status exception in the past five years. 

Also, the matched status does not include the issuance of new membership materials, and PlusPoints rewards are only given to those who reach Premier Platinum.
